The Veterans Affairs National CEnter has published a website on how to understand and treat Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. There is an app to download for a self treatment program which Children of Divorce can use since we are on our own in trying to deal with the extreme trauma of DIvorce and separate households and bullying step parents. There’s an interesting article on PTSD in the June 2011 issue of More magazine.

you can find more information here: PTSD.va.gov. Sorry I’m still trying to learn how to use apple keyboard so can’t link or italicise,etc.

Basically it sounds like researchers don’t have a clue how to treat. They have found that the sooner a person gets support the better his chances of fighting long term problems. Children in divorce can’t afford treatment and are also not free to speak out about the situation because the parents are already so screwed up. The kids just won’t have exposure to supportive people until after the parents get their acts together which on average takes 2-5 years. Step families take about 7 years to settle down probably because that’s how long it takes for the kids to grow up and move out.
