New treatment for Post Tramatic Syndrome

By Sylvia Perez and Christine Tressel
January 22, 2009 (WLS) -- Post traumatic stress disorder is a psychological health crisis usually associated with veterans. But it can be triggered by any traumatic event such as a car accident or physical assault.
Some people don't get better with conventional treatments.

The sights and sounds of war. For some veterans the images and feelings don't go away.
