Complex post-traumatic stress disorder is closely related to post-traumatic stress disorder.

The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5), a handbook often used by psychiatrists and psychologists, does not currently acknowledge “complex post-traumatic stress disorder” as a separate condition. Some doctors will, however, diagnose it.

A person diagnosed with the condition may experience additional symptoms to those that define post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

PTSD is an anxiety disorder that can develop after a person experiences a traumatic event.
