  Q and A from Doctor Glenn A. Saxe

  Is one type of event likely to cause PTSD?

  Interpersonal trauma, particularly sexual trauma, has higher rates of PTSD. But the trauma itself is a weak predictor. Only 20 to 30 percent of kids who are traumatized will develop PTSD. There are factors besides the trauma, such as living in an unsupportive family or one thatís not attuned to the childís emotional needs, and children who grow up with ongoing stresses are more likely to have PTSD. There are also biological factors.
