I read these couple of articles about Complex PTSD and found them helpful. I especially liked the first one from The Mighty, it explains clearly how anxiety and depression in c-PTSD are different from anxiety and depression in other circumstances. The second one talks about how c-PTSD is being better understood all the time and will hopefully be included in the DSM and the ICD before long (the diagnostic handbooks used by mental health professionals).
