What Is Trauma?

Trauma refers to a deeply disturbing or distressing experience that has lasting emotional, psychological, and sometimes physical effects. It can be a one-time event, like an accident, or ongoing, such as prolonged abuse.

Trauma can manifest as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). It often overwhelms the individual’s ability to cope, leading to feelings of helplessness, a diminished sense of self, and an inability to feel a full range of emotions.

Our PTSD Treatment Is Focused on Helping You:

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a mental health condition occurring as a response to a traumatic experience. It may develop in children and adults who have gone through or witnessed terrifying or life-threatening events.

The effectiveness of post-traumatic stress disorder treatment strongly depends on the chosen method and may differ from one patient to another. According to statistics, 41% to 95% of patients lost the PTSD diagnosis after going through prolonged exposure (PE). Per cognitive processing therapy (CPT), 30% to 97% achieved the same result according to different studies. The rates for cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) range from 61% to 82.4%. When it comes to post-traumatic stress disorder treatment with medications, about 60% of patients respond well to antidepressants in the SSRI class.

Psychotherapy treatment for PTSD includes 8 to 12 weekly sessions 60 to 90 minutes each. However, the post-traumatic stress disorder treatment plan can be prolonged up to 30 sessions during 6 months. Some patients will need about 18 months to achieve relief. If medications are prescribed, patients most often take them for at least 12 months and withdrawal requires at least 4-6 weeks.

The costs depend on the chosen treatment, its duration, and the type of medications if prescribed. At MEDvidi, the cost of the initial appointment is $195 and follow-ups cost $159 each.

PTSD Assessment

PTSD assessment at MEDvidi includes a detailed interview with a trained PTSD online therapist, psychiatrist, or MD. It can also be supplemented with answering specific PTSD assessment questionnaires. All this will help to determine whether you have mild or severe PTSD or complex post-traumatic stress disorder (CPTSD).

The doctor will examine the four categories of PTSD symptoms:

Complex PTSD or CPTSD may develop in people who had chronic trauma or had frightening experiences repeatedly. When it comes to complex trauma assessment, the doctor also examines emotional, cognitive, behavioral, interpersonal, and somatic symptoms and issues.

Depression, anxiety, substance abuse, and other mental disorders often go hand in hand with PTSD. Therefore, you may have to take other tests and psychological assessments in addition to the PTSD assessment scale if the symptoms of these conditions are observed.

The most common PTSD symptoms include recurrent thoughts and memories of the traumatic event, flashbacks and nightmares, social isolation and avoiding behavior, fears and irritability, and attachment issues. Often, people with PTSD feel guilt, numbness, and distress. In severe cases, dissociation and personality alterations may develop.

The time needed to overcome PTSD symptoms depends a lot on the severity of the disorder, its duration before receiving treatment, personality features, and the support of loved ones. Even though significant improvement can be seen in a few weeks of treatment, it can take from 6 months to a few years to overcome the condition.

Doctors choose the most suitable relaxation techniques for every patient to overcome acute and chronic PTSD symptoms. It could be deep breathing exercises, meditation and mindfulness, yoga, implementing basic healthy habits, art therapy, and other options.

Managing PTSD: Therapy Techniques

Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT)

Being strongly focused on thinking patterns, emotions, and behavior, CBT helps PTSD patients in several ways. It allows one to determine how trauma affected them and what irrational beliefs they have because of it. During cognitive-behavioral therapy sessions, patients can rewrite their associations with the traumatic event and modify their response to triggers.

Prolonged Exposure (PE)

Prolonged exposure consists of imaginary exposure (working on traumatic memories) and in vivo exposure (identifying real-life situations the patient avoids because of PTSD and starting to take part in such activities again). PE proved to be effective in people with different types of traumatic experiences but requires more dedication from the patient’s side.

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)

EMDR is a form of psychotherapy that helps patients overcome their traumatic memories and feelings by processing them in a specific way. The therapist uses certain hand movements to help a patient focus and reprocess their beliefs, sensations, and self-destructive thoughts until their effect on the patient is significantly reduced.

PTSD: Prescription Management

Although there are no specifically developed PTSD medications, there are several FDA-approved and off-label options:

  • Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI): Paroxetine (Paxil), Sertraline (Zoloft), Fluoxetine (Prozac)
  • Serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRI): Venlafaxine (Effexor)
  • Tricyclic antidepressants: Amitriptyline (Elavi), Imipramine (Tofranil)
  • Atypical antidepressant: Mirtazapine (Remeron)
  • Atypical antipsychotic agents: Risperidone (Risperdal), Quetiapine (Seroquel), Olanzapine (Zyprexa)
  • Alpha-1 receptor antagonists (for nightmares): Prazosin (Minipress)

Self-care is an essential part of PTSD treatment, including relaxation techniques, connecting with family and friends, regular physical activity, journaling, and other self-help methods. However, with professional support, you are more likely to boost the speed of recovery and make your treatment path smoother.

If PTSD symptoms are so severe they make the patient unable to work, PTSD can be considered a disability if certain medical criteria are met.

PTSD treatment can take more or less time depending on the severity of symptoms, the intensity of trauma, and one’s readiness to go through the healing process with strong dedication and consistency. It requires even more effort if the patient has complex PTSD. Still, the results will be achieved if the individual sticks to the treatment plan and has proper support.

Yes, online therapy can be effective for treating trauma and PTSD for many individuals. However, its efficacy depends on the person’s specific needs, the severity of their trauma, and the therapist’s expertise. It’s essential to choose a platform or therapist specializing in trauma and to ensure the approach aligns with the individual’s comfort and therapeutic requirements.

Trauma therapy is a legitimate and evidence-based approach to help individuals deal with traumatic experiences.

Managing PTSD triggers often involves a combination of avoidance strategies and exposure therapy, under the guidance of a qualified healthcare provider. Techniques like grounding exercises, mindfulness, and coping skills can also be helpful. However, individualized treatment is essential for effective management.

Yes, trauma therapy can be conducted virtually and has proven effective for many individuals.

The treatment for trauma can vary depending on the individual and the nature of the traumatic event. But generally speaking, the following are three main recommended treatments:

  1. Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT). This approach helps individuals understand and change their patterns of thought and behavior.
  2. Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR). This involves recalling traumatic experiences while receiving side-to-side eye movements, sounds, or hand taps. The aim is to help the brain reprocess the traumatic memories, reducing their psychological impact.
  3. Medication. Antidepressants or anti-anxiety medications are sometimes used in conjunction with other forms of therapy to treat symptoms associated with trauma, such as depression and anxiety.

While some people attempt to manage trauma symptoms on their own and may experience some improvement, professional trauma treatment is generally recommended for a comprehensive approach, especially for severe cases. Self-help methods are not a substitute for a qualified healthcare provider’s diagnosis and treatment plan.

Stopping PTSD episodes often involves a combination of coping mechanisms, like grounding techniques, and professional treatment, like medication or cognitive-behavioral therapy. Immediate intervention may include focusing on your breath, grounding yourself in the present, and seeking a safe space. However, for long-term management, consult a healthcare provider for diagnosis and a personalized treatment plan.

Yes, with appropriate treatment and support, many people with PTSD are able to lead fulfilling lives.
