High conflict divorce and PTSD

Going through divorce can be one of the most devastating events of a lifetime.  The residual effects can leave adults, and especially children, traumatized, stressed and overwhelmed, but this is particularly true of high conflict divorces.  In fact, mental health professionals are often called upon to counsel parents or children going through divorce to address symptoms of depression and anxiety that emerge over the course of litigation.  In high conflict divorce cases, this is even more evident. This article found in About.com sums up well the indicators that high conflict divorce can have effects consistent with PTSD.  Pathways FMHS offers specialized counseling services for adults and/or children experiencing the emotional impact of divorce.  If you need help, call (936) 238-3868.
