Post Traumatic Stress Disorder is part of the Trauma Stress Disorders group. I refer to the symptoms that may indicate a trauma-stress disorder as Red Flag Behaviour Changes.

In PTSD, the term resilience is used to to describe how your body responds to a threatening or a stressful situation, in order to keep you safe. 
If your resilience is weak, don’t fret as resilience is like fitness. It can be gradually built up over time. So don’t blame yourself if you are not as resilient as you would like to be.

strategies to deal with postvtraumatic stress disorder focus on the two states of the amygdala which are:
1️⃣ down regulate deactivate  or avoidance numbness
2️⃣ up regulate of hype vigilance, flooding, anxiety
