PTSD in the City: Coping in Silence (Psychology Today)
Posted on November 15 2018
According to the National Center for PTSD or Posttraumatic Stress Disorder, in the U.S. population, 6 out of every 10 men (or 60 %) and 5 out of every 10 women (or 50 %) will experience at least one traumatic event in their lifetime. Of the various forms of trauma, men are more likely to experience physical attack (with or without a weapon), accidents, combat, or witness death or injury. On the other hand, women are more likely to experience interpersonal violence such as sexual assault. These traumatic events could lead to the development of PTSD in 10% of those women and 4 % of those men. However, recent studies have found increased rates in the lifetime prevalence of PTSD in residents living in low income and urban inner-city neighborhoods (see Beckett, 2014). In an effort to engage in early intervention to treat symptoms of PTSD, we must consider including PTSD screenings in primary care setting visits in these communities to detect exposure to traumatic events.
