What Is Complex PTSD?

Complex post-traumatic stress disorder (C-PTSD) is a severe psychological condition resulting from prolonged, repeated trauma involving harm or abandonment by a regulating principal figure.

Distinct from PTSD

While similar to PTSD, C-PTSD involves additional symptoms like:

  • Difficulties with emotional regulation
  • Distorted self-perception and sense of meaning
  • Interpersonal problems and lack of trust

Typical Causes

C-PTSD often stems from exposure to traumatic events in childhood, such as:

  • Abuse (physical, sexual, emotional)
  • Neglect
  • Domestic violence

But it can also result from other prolonged traumatic experiences like:

  • Human trafficking
  • Torture
  • Repeated violations of emotional/physical integrity

Symptoms of Complex PTSD

Emotional Disturbances

  • Intense emotions like anger, depression, shame or fear
  • Feeling numb or disconnected from emotions
  • Difficulty regulating emotions

Changes in Consciousness

  • Amnesia or trouble remembering parts of traumatic events
  • Dissociative episodes – feeling detached from reality or one’s self
  • Depersonalization or derealization

Changes in Self-Perception

  • Negative self-image or self-hatred
  • Feeling different or alienated from others
  • Lack of meaning or purpose in life

Difficulties with Relationships

  • Struggles with intimacy or boundaries in relationships
  • Repeated patterns of tumultuous relationships
  • Social isolation or withdrawal

Somatic Disturbances

  • Chronic pain, headaches, or digestive issues
  • Sleep disturbances like insomnia or nightmares
  • Easily startled or hypervigilant

The complex symptoms of C-PTSD require specialized, trauma-informed treatment to address the pervasive effects on daily functioning and quality of life. Early intervention is crucial.
