The aim of this report is to discuss the concept of CPTSD with the aid of a case presentation and increase awareness on it, which is lacking among mental health care professionals.
PTSD was reported to accompany CPTSD frequently in various studies; however both were also reported to have different clinical characteristics (8,18).
In conclusion, in order to understand the multilayered psychopathology that develops in victims of chronic trauma and also overcome the problems while treating these patients, we believe that CPTSD diagnosis with its comprehensive structure may provide a different clinical approach and treatment opportunities for clinicians instead of providing multiple diagnoses for individual symptoms.
