Session 196: Understanding Complex PTSD
The Therapy for Black Girls Podcast is a weekly conversation with Dr. Joy Harden Bradford, a licensed Psychologist in Atlanta, Georgia, about all things mental health, personal development, and all the small decisions we can make to become the best possible versions of ourselves.
While many of us may be familiar with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), you might be less familiar with Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (C-PTSD). To help us understand the differences between the two and to provide some context for C-PTSD, today I’m joined by Licensed Psychologist Dr. Janelle Peifer. Dr. Peifer and I discussed some of the causes of CPTSD, how it impacts interpersonal relationships, how we often overlook experiences as traumatic, an example of what this might look like based on the Duke of Hastings from Bridgerton, and she shares some of her favorite resources for you to dig in a little further.
