Abstract
The psychiatric construct of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder or PTSD is often viewed as a universally valid and scientifically backed construct. In recent years, several clinicians and academics have laid bare some of the shortcomings of this influential trauma model. In this dissertation, the author focuses on four core criticisms of PTSD: (1) problems with the proposed causal mechanism; (2)individualization of stress responses; (3) decontextualization and (4) depoliticization of traumatic reactions). He uses historical, psychoanalytical and philosophical analyses to construct a contextual and subject-oriented trauma approach.
