Hartman’s 12 Stages Of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

Spread the love

Hartmans twelve stages

I have written extensively on this site about how severe and chronic childhood trauma can lead to the development of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in adulthood (see the PTSD section on the main menu). This is also sometimes referred to as complex post-traumatic stress syndrome (CPTSD). In order to understand the theoretical difference between PTSD and CPTSD, click here.

In connection with PTSD, the writer and researcher, Hartman, has proposed a model of how the terrible mental illness can progress over time, involving the afflicted individual going through 12 painful steps.

The 12 Steps Of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD):

  1. Acute anxiety
  2. Depression
  3. Resentment
  4. Anger
  5. Fear
  6. Anxiety
  7. Feelings of worthlessness
  8. Shame
  9. Guilt
  10. Confusion
  11. Pain
  12. Activating events / Triggers
