A neuro-psychological condition describing the long-term effects resulting from repeated, acute events involving backstabbing and betrayal within professional environments. Typical symptoms include heightened anxiety, chronic depression, emotional burnout, and impaired workplace performance. Recent neuroscience research, including fMRI scans of business leaders’ brains, liken the neurological damage (atrophy and dysfunction of the amygdala) to the adverse psychological impact of frequent combat episodes on a soldier. Business PTSD underscores the significant toll that workplace duplicity can take on an individual's mental well-being.
