Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a syndrome that may affect an individual that has experienced a traumatic event. What is classified as “trauma” will be different from individual to individual. No one is immune to PTSD; and those with PTSD will avoid situations which trigger and evoke memories and emotions associated with the trauma.
Individuals will experience changes in bodily and brain function, and can expect to become overly sensitive and triggered easily making it difficult for the individual to distinguish between a truly dangerous situation and one of little to no danger.
This presentation will review the mechanisms of PTSD and explore common treatment methods to assist one with PTSD to regain freedom and life satisfaction. We have identified Exposure Therapy as the treatment of choice for PTSD and have provided review of the Pavlovian theory as a foundation, a Case Study, Exposure Activity examples, benefits and limitations of its use.
