TRAUMATIC STRESS SYNDROME
This is self- reported emotional distress (W. D’Andrea, R. Sharma, A. Zelechoski, J. Spinazzola, 2011). Trauma’s psychological impact is often broad, affecting mood and anxiety. Traumatized individuals are clearly at risk for increased physical illnesses and higher levels of cortisol suppression (de Kloet et al., 2007). Cortisol is called “the stress hormone” because it assists the body to cope with stress. Traumatic Stress Syndrome lacks cortisol production.
