The definition of "constructive bankruptcy" is the inability to play the event in terms of our system of meaning. This inaccessibility to our own meaning system can happen to anyone because we can't predict what will happen in the future. Thus, PTSD can effectively disable a human being by being present in a situation where he or she wasn't expecting to encounter such devastating event. For example, a soldier being ordered to kill an incident child or an innocent civilian. Constructive bankruptcy often occurs after PTSD causing event(s) but the result of where an individual will end up will depend on how well their constructive bases are formed. In the movie, "The Pursuit of Happyness", the main character experiences multiple events that are almost certain to dismantle a person's will to live but he manages to hold on until he achieves his goal. He comes close to "constructive bankruptcy" when he realizes he was about to lose his son. This movie does a great job representing how traumatic events can influence or cause someone to dissociate, see everything as dangerous, or even completely ruin them. But what I find most significant about this movie is that humans have agency and not solely the by-product of social constructionism.
