NaNo prep :D I have a character who suffered a traumatic experience (Kidnapping/torture) and was wondering; months after if they’re not coping well and had a severe nervous break down, would they need to see a doctor for this? What kind of treatment would a doctor suggest someone who had a nervous breakdown? Can people ‘tell’ or ‘sense’ that someone may be heading for a break down moments before it happens? Are there any tell tale signs?

Hey there nonny,  This is outside my realm of expertise. This generally falls under:  torture – @scripttorture  psychology – @scriptshrink trauma – @scripttraumasurvivors  They have LOADS and loads of posts on trauma and post-traumatic stress, and -torture has posts that (unsurprisingly) relate to torture and its effects on victims specifically, so go and check them …

Thank you so much for the work you do for the writing community :) I have a three-year old character. If he sees something super traumatic (people being eaten alive) could he go (i think the term is) electively mute. Like not speak at all, not just about the incident, but at all. Or is that just something they do in the movies. Thank you!!!

Hey! Sorry, this is a psychology ask, not a medical one. You might ask @scriptshrink or @scripttraumasurvivors about this, since it’s much more their field than mine.  xoxo, Aunt Scripty from Tumblr http://ift.tt/2x75cvn
