Complex post traumatic stress disorder C-PTSD and our parenting

Complex post traumatic stress disorder C-PTSD and our parenting

Understanding C-PTSD and how it effects our parenting

Some of the points that I highlighted during the talk

🧠🤕❤️‍🩹C-PTSD occurs as a result of long-term exposure to traumatic stress rather than in response to a single incident. It typically arises as a result of ongoing stress or repeat or repeated traumatic events that occur during childhood and is sometimes referred to as developmental trauma disorder (DTD)

🧠🤕❤️‍🩹 Take comfort in this : C-PTSD is the result of learned ineffective beliefs and behaviors that can be replaced by a positive mind-set and health-promoting behaviors.

🧠🤕❤️‍🩹 8 contributing factors to the development of C-PTSD

1: Intensity, duration and timing:

Children are most susceptible to the impact of continuous stressors during critical growth period, such as the first three years of life when the nervous system is extremely fragile and during adolescence when they are forming their identity.

2: Genetics


4: In -utero influence

5: Family dynamics

6: Modeling

7: Presence of a learning disability or ADHD

8: Lack of resilience factors

🧠🤕❤️‍🩹How C-PTSD affects mind and body

💥1: Cognitive distortions: These include inaccurate beliefs about oneself, others
and the world.

💥2: Emotional distress: Frequent feelings of being overwhelmed, anxiety, helplessness, hopelessness, despair, deep loneliness, shame, unfairness, injustice,and depression and suicidal thoughts are often triggered by social loss, abandonment, and disconnection.

💥3: Disturbing somatic sensations: Historical threats are maintained as uncom-
fortable body sensations or somatization, in which psychological distress
presents in the form of physical symptoms.

💥4: Disorientation: Inaccurate beliefs, emotions, and body sensations contribute
to a loss of distinction between the past and the present.

💥5: Hypervigilance: High sensitivity to tracking nuances and subtleties in body
language and facial expressions within other people is developed as an attempt to keep oneself safe.

💥6: Avoidance: Avoidance involves learned patterns of shutting out or pushing away
uncomfortable sensations, memories, or emotions. This is often maintained by
defenses such as denial, repression, dissociation, or addictive behaviors.

💥Interpersonal problems: Ineffective interpersonal relationship dynamics include withdrawing from, blaming, pushing away, or criticizing friends and
loved ones unnecessarily. Patterns learned within dysfunctional family systems
tend to get repeated in adulthood until new and effective interpersonal strategies are developed.

💥Brain development: Abuse and neglect produce measurable changes in brain structures that are associated with deficits in social skills and aca-
demic success.

💥Health problems: Unresolved C-PTSD is a significant cause of physical health
concerns in adulthood.
