Complex PTSD Research 2021-2022

Scientific research on cptsd

Complex PTSD research is always advancing our understanding of the problem faced by those who suffer, treatment options and prevention. The advancement of knowledge is always ongoing.

Here I’m going to try something new. I worked at the periphery of scientific research for 20+ years. I have developed a habit of reading almost anything I can put my hands on. I don’t have the access to scholarly journals that I once did, but there is still plenty of information ‘out there’. I’m going to try to bring more complex ptsd articles here, collect it, give you links to it, and a summary.
