PTSD Case Example

James, a 27-year-old city banker, was caught up in the July 2005 London bombings. He was on an underground tube train near King’s Cross when the train carriage exploded next to where he was sitting. Luckily, James escaped with minor injuries, but he is still disturbed by the sights and sounds that he encountered immediately following the explosion. He has recurrent nightmares and says that he can hear the voices of the victims calling out as soon as he tries to go to sleep. James has been prescribed night sedation by his GP, but
this does not appear to be working. Nowadays, he tends to stay indoors. James has not returned to work since this incident happened and he shudders at the idea of going underground to take a trip on a tube train.
