Complex post-traumatic stress disorder is a mental issue that can create in light of drawn out, rehashed insight of relational injury in a setting in which the individual has almost no opportunity of escape. C-PTSD identifies with the injury model of mental issues and is related with ongoing sexual, mental, and actual maltreatment or disregard, constant private accomplice brutality, casualties of delayed working environment or school bullying, asualties of capturing and prisoner circumstances, obligated workers, survivors of servitude and illegal exploitation, sweatshop laborers, detainees of war, death camp survivors, private school survivors, detainees kept in isolation for a significant stretch of time, and turncoats from tyrant religions.

It is regularly aimed at kids and sincerely weak grown-ups, and while inspirations driving such maltreatment fluctuate, however for the most part being dominatingly pernicious, it has likewise been shown that the inspirations driving such maltreatment can be well-intentioned. Situations including bondage/ensnarement (a circumstance without a reasonable getaway course for the person in question or an impression of such) can prompt C-PTSD-like indications, which can incorporate delayed sensations of dread, uselessness, weakness, and distortion of one's character and ability to be self-aware.

The diagnosis of PTSD was originally developed for adults who had suffered from a single-event trauma, such as rape, or a traumatic experience during a war. However, the situation for many children is quite different. Children can suffer chronic trauma such as maltreatment, family violence, dysfunction, and or a disruption in attachment to their primary caregiver. In many cases, it is the child's caregiver who causes the trauma. The diagnosis of PTSD does not take into account how the developmental stages of children may affect their symptoms and how trauma can affect a child's development.

The term "developmental trauma disorder" (DTD) has been proposed as the childhood equivalent of C-PTSD. This developmental form of trauma places children at risk for developing psychiatric and medical disorders. Dr. Bessel van der Kolk explains DTD as numerous encounters with interpersonal trauma such as physical assault, sexual assault, violence or death. It can also be brought on by subjective events such as abandonment, betrayal, defeat or shame.

PTSD depictions neglect to catch a portion of the center attributes of C- PTSD. These components incorporate imprisonment, mental discontinuity, the passing of a feeling of security, trust, and self-esteem, just as the propensity to be revictimized. Above all, there is a deficiency of a sound ability to be self-aware: this misfortune, and the following manifestation profile, most distinctly separates C-PTSD from PTSD.

C-PTSD is likewise described by relational indifference, especially the inescapable shaky, or disrupted sort attachment. DSM-IV dissociative issues and PTSD do exclude uncertain connection in their models. As an outcome of this part of C-PTSD, when a few grown-ups with C-PTSD become guardians and defy their own kids' connection needs, they may have specific trouble in reacting delicately particularly to their babies' and small kids' standard pain, for example, during routine detachments, notwithstanding these guardians' best aims and efforts. Although the extraordinary lion's share of survivors doesn’t mishandle others this trouble in nurturing may have unfavorable repercussions for their kids' social and enthusiastic turn of events if guardians with this condition and their kids don't get proper treatment.

In this manner, a separation between the symptomatic class of C-PTSD and that of PTSD has been proposed. C-PTSD better portrays the unavoidable adverse consequence of ongoing redundant injury than does PTSD alone. PTSD can exist close by C-PTSD, anyway a sole conclusion of PTSD frequently doesn't adequately typify the expansiveness of manifestations experienced by the individuals who have encountered drawn out horrendous experience, and hence C-PTSD stretches out past the PTSD boundaries
