ISTSS Public Education Videos
The following videos present three different trauma survivors telling their stories.* Each story has a different focus. One trauma story highlights how a traumatic event may be experienced, the other highlights the after-effects of trauma, with an emphasis on PTSD symptoms. The last video presents one survivor's experience of getting treatment for PTSD.
The purpose of these videos is to offer a personalized glimpse into the nature of trauma, how it affects us as individuals and how treatment can reduce these effects. We hope you find them informative.
*Stories are composites of real trauma survivors. Survivors are played by actors.
