There is a great article in this month’s scientific American Mind

Much of the brain is primed as a child while it is still developing. Children who experience abuse to any degree on a regular basis (physical, emotional, extreme fear) may have changes in the brain from that exposure.
The article states that people can be identified before they go into battle/war so they are not allowed to go. It also goes into the different therapies that have some measure of success.
The Scientific American MIND does not allow new material to be published. If you can get a copy at the bookstore then it is well worth the read If you cannot find a copy there near you, maybe you could order one from the publisher or from Amazon.com: This is the issue.
