PTSD Understood: A multi-media journey
PTSD is the anxiety disorder that we investigate and study to satisfy the “anxiety disorder” component of the IB psychology learning outcomes.
Your Task: You must go online to discover 1 article as well as 1 youtube video that elucidates the symptoms of PTSD but in a way that gives you true insight into the disorder. I do not want you to go to wikipedia and cite a list. I want you to read personal accounts, exposes by large news magazines (Time, Rolling Stone, NY TIMES, etc). I want you to develop EMPATHY via your reading and watching.
After you have completed the above, comment on this blog post with the following commentary:

Additionally, provide the links to both the article and the video in your comment. If for some reason you’re not allowed to comment on this post, address the aforementioned in a word document!!
