The pervasiveness of Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and its detrimental effects on sufferers, society, and the economy at large underscore the importance of interventions for PTSD. This mental disorder is currently documented in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5-TR) as an anxiety illness. This article explores the negative effects of PTSD on individuals and those around them and analyzes various PTSD interventions. Major negative effects include effects on individuals, effects on family relationships, and effects on parent-child relationships. Interventions include but are not limited to mindfulness therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), and exposure therapy. The scientific literature on PTSD impacts and interventions was reviewed, including but not limited to interviews with patients, case studies, and scientific analyses of intervention effectiveness. The diversity of negative effects of PTSD and the effectiveness of different interventions are discussed. Include recommendations for future research and the use of interventions.
