Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder Treatment
Overcome Traumatic Events of the Past
Some people can witness or experience a traumatic event and be able to heal without developing further symptoms that inhibit functioning. For others, they may not be as lucky. Traumatic events can sometimes lead to post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
The person who has PTSD can experience confusion, fear, and frustration, triggered by day-to-day events. The experienced psychologists at Dean Aman LPCMH can help with PTSD therapy.
What PTSD Looks Like
PTSD can be triggered within a few weeks of the event, or in some cases, years later. The symptoms can be detrimental to social, work, school, or family situations. They can drastically complicate your daily existence.
Some symptoms include:
- Unwanted distressing memories that make it feel like you are reliving the event.
- Avoiding people, places, and activities that you associate with the trauma.
- A feeling of detachment, and emotional numbness.
- Becoming easily startled and on guard for danger.
The symptoms can vary in intensity, and worsen with outside stressors, or reminders of the event.
