Helps Fund our ongoing
Continuing Acute Traumatic Stress
When there’s no “post” to “post traumatic stress”
Stress cortisol, adaptive for fight or flight from temporary danger in short term trauma or one time events, becomes destructive in situations of continuing acute traumatic stress (CATS). In ongoing trauma, research has long shown that cortisol may cause loss of immunity—and even permanent damage in the brain and body. When traumas are present with no end in sight, as in stalking and other crimes of victimization, treatments for “PTSD” are misplaœd and ineffeclive. When humans are ongoing victims of crimes, the crimes must first be stopped. Counseling a victim without stopping the crime becomes akin to condoning what is illegal and can only enable the perpetrator. What is too often ignored is that such crimes do not affect only one individual, a particular victim. They affect all of us at all ages—children, adults, teens and seniors, our families and our communities. It is up to all of us to stop the crimes—to put the post in PTSD.
