Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is defined by the experience of a traumatic event followed by the development of four clusters of symptoms, including intrusive symptoms (e.g., memories, nightmares, dissociation), avoidance symptoms (e.g., avoidance of memories or cues that are reminders of the traumatic experience), negative alterations in mood or cognition, and increased arousal or reactivity.

These symptom clusters, as well as the traumatic events that trigger them, are heterogeneous and complex, making accurate diagnosis and treatment challenging.
