Navigating Healing: Effective PTSD Treatment Approaches

This entry was posted in PTSD.

Anyone who is exposed to traumatic events like accidents, crimes, injuries, or death can have difficulty returning to everyday life after the event. In some cases, this can develop into PTSD or post-traumatic stress disorder. People with PTSD may experience a wide range of symptoms, from irrational fear and anxiety to heightened aggression, social withdrawal, or flashbacks, and these symptoms can often interfere with day-to-day life. Fortunately, for those coping with trauma, there are now some highly effective PTSD treatment approaches that can help you start on the path toward healing. 

Here is an overview of some of the most common options:

  • CPT – With Cognitive Processing Therapy, the patient works with a therapist, typically over 12 sessions, to challenge or modify unhelpful beliefs related to the trauma. This treatment can help a patient create a new understanding of the event to reduce its negative effects moving forward.
  • DBT – Dialectical Behavioral Therapy is a specialized form of cognitive behavioral therapy that is designed for people who have trouble regulating their emotions. It helps patients focus on the reality of their behaviors and how they can change them effectively to reach the desired outcome.
  • MBB – Mind Body Bridging is a technique that helps those with trauma, PTSD, addictions, and other conditions to clear the mind, reduce stress, calm the body, and encourage the mind to heal itself. It can be especially beneficial for calming the fight or flight response in those who suffer from PTSD or trauma.
  • IFS – With Internal Family Systems therapy, we help clients identify and address several sub-personalities or families within a person’s mental system. These sub-personalities can carry trauma and IFS focuses on healing the wounded parts to restore mental balance and harmony.
