1 doctor answer • 2 doctors weighed in
Psychiatry 56 years experience
PTSD: I feel empathy for those going through sibling physical and psychological abuse as children
It causes intense fear, panic and helplessness
Frequent and intense episodes of abuse with injury; and lack of love and support from the parents can lead to PTSD.
There are no scientific studies to show the percentage of adults with PTSD due to abuse as children
