DTD [Developmental Trauma Disorder]

DTD [Developmental Trauma Disorder]

is another name for


[Complex PTSD]

with an emphasis on childhood traumatization. It was

coined by Bessel van der Kolk to get CPTSD reconsidered for acceptance

in the DSM via a new name. Although it was rejected, CPTSD is now listed

in the ICD-11, the Global standard for diagnostic health information.]

DTD highlights the severe developmental trauma that results when a

child’s caregiving system is rife with physical, emotional, and educational

maltreatment and neglect. Herein, these two labels will be used together

interchangeably, because in my experience, CPTSD is basically what DTD

invariably morphs into after childhood.
