Accordingto Kaakinen, Gedaly-Duff, Hanson and Coehlo (2010), exposure tohorrifying situations initiates the development of symptoms ofpost-traumatic stress disorder. The DSM-IV outlines about six signsfor PSTD based on the diagnosis of traumatic circumstances. TheUnited States emphasizes on hypervigilant measures aimed atmaintaining security and responding to such situations. These actionsfocus on electronic surveillance of the activities the citizensundertake. However, such measures increase the risks for experiencingsecondary trauma to the citizens.
