Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a debilitating and dysfunctional psychological response to the experience of extremely threatening events. This talk will begin by outlining a broadly cognitive model of human emotions. This will then be used as a context to explore how the emotion system is disrupted by the experience of extreme events along various continua giving rise to conditions such as PTSD . Finally, treatment of PTSD will be discussed.
