Is there sufficient evidence to support the premise that untreated PTSD increases the risk of someone committing violence within their family or community?I think we only need to look as far as the violence in the world to determine that humans are inherently good. Doing good requires effort while violence perpetuates itself. Those that experience violence are more likely to commit violence. PTSD is inflicted by violence in some manner. According to a study attempting to locate predictors of committing future violence, the single best predictor found was having been exposed to violence (Weaver, Borkowski, & Whitman, 2011). Some studies show as much as a 500% increase in domestic violence among those who served in the military (Tucker, 2009). It conclusively takes dedication and effort to improve anything, and human behavior is no exception.When a person suffers from PTSD, their reactions are atypical. They react based on learned behaviors, how they have been taught to react on a battlefield, or how they have learned to act out of fear. They cannot necessarily distinguish between threat levels. All they know is that they need to be in control and that may drive their actions instead of rationality or a sense of propriety.ReferencesTucker, D. D. (2009). Domestic violence, PTSD, and brain injury: Military and civilian challenges, Part 1. National Center on Domestic and Sexual Violence, 1-10. (Links to an external site.)Weaver, C. M., Borkowski, J. G., & Whitman, T. L. (2011). Violence breeds violence: Childhood exposure and adolescent conduct problems. Journal of Community Psychology, 36(1), 96-112. #2:Christian W.What role does PTSD play in community and family violence? Is there sufficient evidence to support the premise that untreated PTSD increases the risk of someone committing violence within their family or community?First and foremost, we must admit that public healthcare issues and their tertiary effects are inherently political. Either because of ideology, or the most widespread reason, because of money. PTSD is undoubtedly one of a litany of mental health crises that plague some of the most economically and socially vulnerable in our society. Is there empirical evidence to support sound public health decisions regarding PTSD? In my opinion, no. Many years ago, my wife worked in a public library chronically forced to call the police to deal with groups of homeless or destitute people. From drug overdoses in the public bathrooms, to physical altercations with patrons or disruptive behavior, the city council would do little because “public nuisance” complaints (as the incidences were labeled by the city PD) did not fall under the purview of the health department. So, allocating resources to deal with what was plainly a public crises of mental health care? Never going to happen. Some of you may ask how I know that mental health issues were to blame? One doesn’t have to be a psychiatrist to understand when a human being is struggling to maintain a grip on sanity. What about violence? Desperate, poor, and mentally ill are not a guarantee of violence, but they sure don’t deescalate situations that are stressful in the best of times in public or private life. Add a little military flavor? The correlation of substance abuse, trauma, and TBIs makes the “prevalence of homelessness in veterans …10 times more than the general veteran population” (National Alliance to End Homelessness). That sounds an awful lot like a correlation between several major factors plaguing our public health in society today.National Alliance to End Homelessness. Veteran Homelessness.
