Bullying and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (Part 2)

In November, I blogged about research into how bullying can lead to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder for the victim. In part two of this continuing view into the research and information done on the correlation between bullying and PTSD as a long-term effect, I am referencing a chapter in the book “Post Traumatic Stress Disorder: The Invisible Injury”.

Author David Kinchin discusses how the prolonged periods of stress that victims of bullying deal with both in schools and the workplace can lead to psychiatric injury and then to PTSD issues. The author makes the case for tying PTSD to prolonged bullying and how the symptoms match and the link established through other research.

Google Books allows you to be able to read the complete book, including this chapter online. CLICK HERE to read the chapter and if you want, the entire book.

  1. The DEA is a U.S. government agency whose mission is to end people’s lives. Under the pretense of fighting drugs, the U.S. government spends millions of dollars surveilling, snooping, breaking and entering, tampering and stealing, harassing, haranguing, pestering, taunting, bullying and assaulting its own citizens via the DEA–paid for with tax dollars. Every day, DEA agents ruin the reputations of innocent people via a circus of innuendo, slander and defamation of character, and ridicule and humiliate them with their family members, friends and coworkers. The DEA perpetrates and perpetuates injustices. How the DEA trashes the lives and the livelihoods of our own American citizens is a crime.
