PTSD: Why A Qualified Therapist Matters
Post traumatic stress disorder, or PTSD, is a fairly common disorder that occurs after witnessing or experiencing trauma. While PTSD is often thought of as a disorder that plagues people who have been through violence, the disorder can affect anyone who has gone through a traumatic situation. Death, birth, divorce, abuse, assault, and being the victim of a random crime can all trigger PTSD. There is no right or wrong way to experience PTSD. Some people have many symptoms of PTSD, while others only have a few. PTSD can last for months, or even years.
If you're going through PTSD, it's important to know that it's not your fault, and stress relief is possible if you work with a qualified therapist. While you may be tempted to handle your PTSD symptoms on your own, it's essential that you work with someone who is well-versed in stress relief for someone who has been through severe trauma. If you work with a therapist who doesn't understand PTSD, the work you do together may be ineffective at best, and dangerous at worst.
