Before the incident occurred, people were in their natural recreational and or vocational environments. If the incident would have never happened, a lot of individuals would not have to experience PTSD. The highest prevalence of PTSD symptoms were the victims that were in the towers and had direct exposure to the tragedy (DiGrande, 2016). In increasing the development of PTSD, genetic factors are not the only cause. The involvement of each survivor in the tragedy,the placement of the individual when the first attack took place, and the loss of co-workers, friends, and family members, can all increase PTSD symptoms. According to DiGrande (2016), “The relationship between the exposure of the traumatic event and PTSD development can include evacuations, injury, and witnessing of personal horrors of destruction and death” (p.

For example, an individual may display more PTSD symptoms if they were running down the stairs than an individual who was miles away. Biological factors are contributors to post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Only 16 to 15% of the 30 to 70% of people develop PTSD due to the exposure of an even that is traumatic (Lee, 2015, p. 135). In the aftermath of an event that can cause traumatic experiences, the vulnerability of an individual is claimed to be inconsistent with exposure to trauma and the percentages of psychological influences (Lee, 2015, p. 135). In PTSD victims, the exposure to a traumatic event are influenced by comorbidity, gender, and the gene polymorphism promotion. The effect of comorbidity is an interesting factor concerning influences that are biological of a PTSD victim. In many individuals with mental disorders, the occurrences of two or more diagnosis are comorbidity (Kessler, 2015; Wolfe, 2016). In the development of two or more mental disorders are being discovered by researchers in contribution to vulnerability increase (Wolf, 2016, p. 328). In the study of predispositions that are heritable, internalizing factors in relation to anxiety and mood disorders, and externalizing factors such a substance abuse, are the primary areas discussed. In relation of the psychopathology elements of internalizing and externalizing, the correlation between the two are common in the development of PTSD (Wolf, 2016, p. 327). Psychopathology in a study of identical twins, reflects externalized, non-shared genetic environmental factors. Varying an individual’s environment and experiences in PTSD, psychological disorders, anxiety, substance abuse, and personality and mood disorders, arise and develop from a person’s genetic predisposition. The influence of serotonin and gene polymorphism promotion on the development of PTSD are other contributing factors to biological standards. In encourage a client with PTSD,

In studies, many researchers focus specifically on the neurotransmitter systems of serotonin and catecholamines. Concerning the serotonin’s role in PTSD clients in pathophysiology, serotonin is
