How Does It Work
The idea that present difficulties may be caused by past traumatic incidents is not a new one. It was with the recognition of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) as a major difficulty for many Vietnam Veterans that the idea was given a higher profile. Once the phenomenon was clearly recognized, PTSD was easily identifiable among other populations, such as rape survivors and victims of natural disasters. Although survivors of all kinds of traumas with PTSD and flashbacks offer perhaps the most dramatic example of living in the past, the phenomenon is quite common to people in general.
