People who have posttraumatic stress disorder needs a lot of attention in terms of cognitivebehavioral treatment. People who have this disorder may be in temporarilystress and anxiety because they think our world is no longer a safe place.People who have PTSD can be to mindful which can lessen the activation of thefight or flight response. (Youngdiggers, n.d.
) Humanbehavior is evolving from time to time. (Grohol, 2012). Another term for the fight or flight response is “acute stressresponse”. It is also stated that when a person perceived threats ordanger, the sympathetic nervous system will generally discharge and willeventually lead to fighting or fleeing.
It is a physiological response thatoccurs when a person is in danger (Cannon,1929). As what (Bloom, 1999) says that whenever we are exposed to a lot of danger the more webecome sensitive which allows our mind to form connections that can triggerwhen we are in a dangerous situation. Physical, cognitive and emotionalresponse can get sensitive that triggers when a person is mostly exposed todanger repeatedly. Moreover, increasingof the heart rate, the blood pressure, and the breathing rate is caused by theadrenaline which is released in the process of sympathetic nervous system.Which enable us to fight or flight when we are in danger and when the threat isalready gone our body returns to its normal function, too much chronic stresscan damage our body (Yourhomones, n.d & Youngdiggers, n.d). Tofurther explain, we can’t understand more about what happens in fight or flightresponse syndrome if we don’t discuss what is fear and anxiety and theirdifference.
Anxiety is a fear and it isalso a nervousness towards an event like riding a zip line and you think aboutthe possible things that may happen to you. While, fear is something that youare afraid of (Tull, 2017).However, when we experience fear and anxiety itdoes not always occur in situation when we are in immediate danger because all of our attention are focused on impermanentsurvival in the present time (Bloom, 1999). Therefore,fight or flight can also become an anxiety disorder because the fight or flightsystem activates even though there is no danger or threat. (Calmclinic, n.d
