Traumatic events and depression

Traumatic sources of depression
Sometimes the onset of the depression can be traced back to shortly after a trauma, or a traumatic period, in one’s life. This can often result in depression especially if the trauma has not been worked with or resolved in some effective way. Depression here can be seen as a symptom of what is now called post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Depression is relatively common in PTSD patients, particularly if there was a sense of helplessness, or of being trapped, in their particular traumatic situation. Again this can be treated fairly effectively with specialist counselling or therapy for PTSD (see the section on “Trauma and PTSD”).
