Complex PTSD

Dr. Judith Herman developed the concept of Complex PTSD. She argues that this new diagnosis is necessary to describe the symptoms experienced by survivors of long-term trauma such as child sexual abuse, prostitution, and organized child exploitation rings.

The National Center for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder has a very helpful Fact Sheet on Complex PTSD.
