Evaluating your likely current (and near future) state of health means taking into account the risk factors — such as physical punishment during childhood — that affect you. Our medical diagnosis tool, The Analyst™, identifies major risk factors by asking the right questions.
Were you inappropriately physically punished / abused as a child? Do not include sexual abuse here.
Possible responses:→ No / don't know / I deserved it and accept it
→ Mildly - an occasional smack
→ Moderately - regular light physical punishment
→ Occasional severe physical punishment/abuse
→ Severely - frequent hard physical punishment/abuse
Recent studies have shown that childhood abuse (particularly sexual abuse) is a strong predictor of the lifetime likelihood of developing PTSD.
