PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder)



SPECIFIC TREATMENTS FOR SPECIFIC POPULATIONS: COGNITIVE BEHAVIORAL INTERVENTIONS FOR POSTTRAUMATIC STRESS DISORDER

With Candice M. Monson, PhD

Cognitive theories of posttraumatic stress disorder, or PTSD, assert that traumatized individuals make problematic appraisals about their experiences that potentially impede recovery from trauma. Individuals with PTSD develop over-generalized and negative conclusions based on traumatic events in areas such as safety, trust, and intimacy.

Unlike anxiety-based or emotional-processing theories of PTSD, which are the foundation of exposure-based interventions, cognitive theories hold that PTSD is not a disorder of anxiety, but is instead characterized by emotional and physiological dysregulation that can be remedied with cognitive interventions.

In this video, Dr. Candice M. Monson employs cognitive behavioral therapy interventions with a woman who is suffering from PTSD after the tragic loss of her son.

PTSD: LIVING IN A STRESSFUL WORLD - UNDERSTANDING AND OVERCOMING POST-TRAUMATIC STRESS DISORDER

By Jef Gazley, M.S.,LMFT

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a mental health condition that is triggered by a terrifying event. Symptoms may include flashbacks, nightmares and severe anxiety, as well as uncontrollable thoughts about the event. Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder is very common in today's society. When a trauma occurs a person often has a delayed reaction that can cripple them for years unless treated. This educational DVD discusses the causes, symptoms, and treatment of this disorder, and was also used as research for the movie "The Manchurian Candidate."

This educational video on Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder treatment addresses the enormous problem of trauma and trauma resolution. Trauma has always been with us, but has been on the rise in recent years. The tragedy of the Columbine shootings, and the World Trade Center Twin Towers in New York on 9/11, are only two examples in the United States. As terrorism continues to grow it becomes imperative to truly understand the intricacies of this mental health disorder.

New treatment modalities have been discovered in the past 20 years that help to relieve PTSD quickly and with much less painful emotion than more conventional therapies. This educational DVD presents all of these new treatments.

RESOLVING TRAUMA IN PSYCHOTHERAPY: A SOMATIC APPROACH

With Peter Levine, PhD

Watch a true master, Dr. Peter A. Levine, demonstrate a course of body-oriented trauma therapy in this extremely compelling and in-depth video with an Iraq Veteran diagnosed with severe PTSD.

Working with Ray's presenting symptoms over the course of five sessions, Levine introduces a number of essential trauma resolution techniques that markedly improve Ray's Tourette-like convulsions, as well as his overall pain and emotional outlook.

Thorough commentary by Levine, as well as an extensive interview, helps to elucidate the subtleties of his methods. You will walk away from this video with a sound understanding of this approach to trauma work. This method can be integrated with and add richness to a number of therapeutic modalities and can be used to treat all manner of trauma ˇV from car accidents, surgeries, child abuse, experiences of violence, and so on.

By watching this program, you will:
~ Learn the nine building blocks of the Somatic Experiencing® approach
~ Understand the physiological orientation that underpins this method of trauma resolution
