PTSD Feels... Dangerous Threatening Exhausting Impulsive Numb Angry Overwhelming
It is estimated that 70% of adults have experienced a traumatic event at some point in their life. Following a traumatic event, everyone experiences certain symptoms. It’s the sleepless nights, the sudden recollections that invade your memories, and the unexpected panic in situations that remind you of the event.
For many of us, that experience fades over time. With PTSD, something blocks that natural recovery. Rather than fading away, those reactions intensify.
It is this intensification that forms many of the symptoms of PTSD. These symptoms include:
- Constant anxiety
- Sudden, unexpected memories
- Avoiding locations and events
- Feeling “jumpy” or easily startled
- Feeling perpetually “in danger”
- Difficulty sleeping
- Difficulty concentrating
Because trauma can be complex and overwhelming, it requires a knowledgable approach to treatment.
The goal of treating trauma is to identify what is “blocking” that ability to recover, overcome those barriers, and facilitate that process of healing.
To accomplish this, Tempest draws from three of the leading evidence-based treatments for trauma. These include Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TFCBT), and Prolonged Exposure Therapy (PE). All three of these are considered the gold standard for PTSD treatment.
Better still, these three approaches have proven to be highly effective online. Each has particular strengths, and some methods work better depending on the unique experiences of the client. At Tempest, we employ a combination of these three protocols, tailored to your specific needs.
This unique, individualized approach is what allows Tempest to be so effective in trauma treatment.
