Imagine the scenario – a woman goes into work one day and a senior colleague acts in an abusive and malicious way towards her. This is so shocking that she spends the next two years suffering from the consequences of that incident. She cannot sleep at night, she has frequent flashbacks and nightmares, she turns into a different person. The way she has been treated by her colleagues at work creates an ongoing depressive condition that requires serious psychiatric support.
Is it right to talk about this as post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)?
If it looks like a dog, if it barks like a dog, and if overall it behaves like a dog, then it is most likely to be a dog. In the case of PTSD caused by bullying and abuse at work, this is a particularly black dog.
