Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) symptoms do not always show up immediately after a trauma. Sometimes they take months or even years to fully present themselves.
PTSD with delayed onset is when an individual does not meet full criteria for PTSD until 6 months or more after the trauma. PTSD with specifier of delayed expression is not a commonly diagnosed disorder. However, it is a presentation of PTSD that is commonly found if you ask the right questions.
Dr. McCleary explains in this video what PTSD with a specifier of delayed expression is and why he and other scientists think it happens.
Dr. Harry McCleary is a licensed clinical psychologist and Navy Veteran. His channel is focused on educating Veterans and their loved ones about mental health.
