This model is doctrine in the medical model of PTSD. The essential necessary precondition is exposure to life-threatening trauma, which triggers an unconditioned “fight–flight–freeze” response, initiating activity in the hypothalamic–pituitary–adrenal axis, the locus coeruleus and noradrenergic systems, and the neurocircuitry of the fear system. This hardwired response to life threat is richly encoded in memory and conditioned to a variety of peri- and postevent stimuli. , 2011). In discreet life-threatening contexts such as motor vehicle accidents, this model is compelling and valid from a variety of perspectives.
