This can include efforts to avoid people, places, or activities that trigger memories of the traumatic event, as well as avoidance of thoughts, feelings, or conversations related to the event.
They may feel numb and detached, and lose interest in activities they used to enjoy.
This can include symptoms such as reckless behaviour, irritability, difficulty sleeping, being easily startled, and having an exaggerated response to stress.
