PTSD Treatment

PTSD

PTSD is the abbreviation used for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. PTSD is a disorder that is marked by experiencing or being a witness to a traumatic event. Her House offers specialized treatment for women who are diagnosed with PTSD.

“Trauma is personal. It does not disappear if it is not validated. When it is ignored or invalidated the silent screams continue internally heard only by the one held captive. When someone enters the pain and hears the screams healing can begin.” ― Danielle Bernock, Emerging with Wings: A True Story of Lies, Pain, and the Love That Heals

Common Causes for Developing PTSD

The following examples illustrate common occurrences that can trigger PTSD:

  • Childhood abuse
  • Rape
  • Tragic losses
  • Spousal abuse
  • War veterans
  • Witnessing a death or an act of violence
  • Accidents
  • Robberies
“It has become clear that, as Janet observed one hundred years ago, dissociation lies at the heart of the traumatic stress disorders. Studies of survivors of disasters, terrorist attacks, and combat have demonstrated that people who enter a dissociative state at the time of the traumatic event are among most likely to develop long-lasting PTSD.” ― Judith Lewis Herman, Trauma and Recovery

Not everyone who experiences these types of events will develop PTSD, though some will. PTSD is nothing to feel shameful or embarrassed about. We have helped countless women learn how to manage their PTSD and live peaceful lives.

What are the Symptoms of PTSD?

If you are suffering from any of these symptoms after experiencing a traumatic event, you could have PTSD.

  • Extreme nervousness and tension
  • Flashbacks or nightmares concerning the event
  • Feeling numb
  • Fragments of memories from the event
  • Feeling angry for no apparent reason
  • Getting startled easily
  • Insomnia
  • Avoidance of anything that reminds you of the event
  • Obsession with the event
“Unlike simple stress, trauma changes your view of your life and yourself. It shatters your most basic assumptions about yourself and your world — “Life is good,” “I’m safe,” “People are kind,” “I can trust others,” “The future is likely to be good” — and replaces them with feelings like “The world is dangerous,” “I can’t win,” “I can’t trust other people,” or “There’s no hope.” ― Mark Goulston

We urge to reach out to Her House for a consultation if any of these symptoms are present in your life. Our goal is to help women with PTSD learn how to not only cope, but thrive in their everyday world.
