Treatments and Therapies For PTSD

 

There are a number of possible treatments and therapies for people suffering from PTSD. While some medication may contribute therapeutic benefits, psychotherapy is focused on long-term relief or mitigation of the worst symptoms. Since each individual case is unique, a treatment that is effective for one patient may not be so effective for another. What is critical is that people suffering from PTSD receive treatment by a trained psychologist with knowledge and experience in treating PTSD. Work with a psychologist may entail efforts focused on several possible treatments to discover which is the most effective.

 

Additionally, beyond the treatment for PTSD itself, there may be family members or significant others who are regularly or occasionally affected also by the PTSD reactions of the patient, and so differing approaches to family or personal therapy may be required for them as well as the PTSD patient. Occasionally, there are abusive relationships situations involved which requires an expanded range of people receiving treatment.

 

In some cases, there may be other psychological problems not directly associated with the PTSD that require treatment, such as depression, suicidal impulses or behavior, and/or substance abuse.

 

Thus, it is important that a knowledgeable psychologist, like Dr. Blair, provide expert PTSD treatment.
