Post-traumatic disorder (PTSD) has received increased attention from both the media and broader public over the past decade. That attention has thankfully come with increased recognition of how significantly trauma can impact the lives of those who experience it. But like many other disorders now recognized by the public (e.g., Major Depression, Bipolar Disorders), there are now also many commonly held and unhelpful myths about PTSD. This discussion aims to sort out the myths from the science of PTSD, including (a) what makes an event "traumatic," (b) how trauma can lead to PTSD for some people and not others, and (c) how the science-based treatments can significantly improve the lives of people suffering from PTSD.
