Morecommonly known as PTSD, it is considered as an extremely complex disorder with the ability toaffect people of all backgrounds.Here, identify the neuropsychological disorder usingcurrent terminology. (For behavioral/mental health disorders, useDSM-5currentterminology; for neurological conditions not found in theDSM-5, use terminology fromcurrent clinical guidelines from appropriate professional societies).While mostlyassociated with military personnel, PTSD can occur as a result of sexual abuse, physicalabuse or even following an accident or natural disaster.

(UseDSM-5for mental/behavioral health disorders; use clinicalguidelines for neurological conditions not found in theDSM-5)Unpleasantstimuli would be something like being repeatedly exposed to details of sexualabuse by social workers, or human remains by first responders and CSIs.
