Also known as posttraumatic stress disorder. I first heard about this type of stress by watching documentaries about Vietnam veterans and their experiences in Vietnam. It was noted that a lot of these veterans were complaining about flashbacks, emotional numbness and having extreme emotional outbursts to minor things. While this type of stress has always been around after wars and conflicts for example soldiers returning from World War 1 and 2 were said to be shell-shocked. We now know this was posttraumatic stress disorder. People with traumatic stress can also suffer problems with concentration, controlling impulses and decision-making. In the long term this type of stress can develop into behavioural disorders, depression, multiple personality disorders or even compel a sufferer to commit suicide.

Everyday people can suffer from this type of stress after a traumatic experience such as accidents, a brush with death, death of a loved one and abuse (Sexual or Psychological).
