Trauma is nothing anyone wants to go through. Whether its a car accident, mugging, physical assault, war, rape, sexual abuse, or other forms of trauma, it all can cause post traumatic stress disorder. PTSD leaves one feeling fearful, angry, defective, and sometimes hopeless about life. After trauma we often feel vulnerable and can lose trust in humanity and the world.
Therapy for PTSD starts with creating a safe place for teens to talk about your struggle and eventually work on the trauma.
We understand that the last thing that most people who have been through a trauma want to do is talk about it, so we wait until you feel comfortable and ready. Unfortunately, the way to recover from trauma is to work through it and process it. The avoidance of thinking of or talking about the trauma is what keeps the PTSD alive.
Fortunately there is effective treatment for PTSD. At the Bay Area Center for Anxiety we use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Prolonged Exposure, and Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing therapy, which are A rated treatments for PTSD. These types of therapy can help you to get your life back and stop being tormented by your trauma.
