PTSD Caregivers Hinder Recovery?

PTSD Caregivers Hinder Recovery?



Partners have a number of challenges when living with a veteran who has PTSD. PTSD caregivers feel that they must take care of us veterans and attend closely to the veteran’s problems. PTSD caregivers may respond in ways that worsen the problem rather than help recovery. They may have difficulty understanding, become angry with us veterans, communicate poorly, and/or fail to provide support. (Julia M. Whealin, Ph.D)
