    00:01 So, PTSD, we might be considering the fact that right now the world, the globe has gone through a pandemic.

    00:10 And how do we see this pandemic as it relates to post-traumatic stress disorder? So, a trauma focused response to COVID-19 is really important, because all the evidence that we're gathering now points to increased rates of PTSD, following pandemics.

    00:35 And not just this pandemic, this is the most recent pandemic, but it may not be our last pandemic.

    00:43 And so we have to start thinking about pandemics and the effect that a pandemic has on our psyche.

    00:53 Being prepared for the potential psychological impact of trauma that results from a pandemic, from the current outbreak, or from any future outbreaks can help us to protect people and organize services so that those services are going to be available to our patients.

    01:17 It's crucial to consider people's experiences and what they have experienced in COVID-19, and relate that to trauma in that context of post traumatic stress disorder.

    01:31 Because their psychosocial circumstances and any possible existing mental disorders that they have are going to be impacted by a pandemic, which is all over the globe, where we are seeing different areas experiencing different heights of the pandemic as it is ongoing.
