If you’ve experienced a traumatic event, you may feel a wide range of emotions such as anxiety, anger, fear, and depression. The truth is that there is no right or wrong way to react to trauma; but there are ways that you can heal from your experience, and uncover your own capacity for resilience, growth, and recovery.
Overcoming trauma and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) offers proven-effective treatments based on acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) to help you overcome both the physical and emotional symptoms of trauma and PTSD. This course will help you find relief from painful flashbacks, insomnia, or other symptoms you might be experiencing. Also included are worksheets, checklists, and exercises to help you start feeling better and begin your journey on the road to recovery.
This course will help you:
- manage your anxiety and stop avoiding certain situations
- cope with painful memories and nightmares
- determine if you need to see a therapist
- develop a support system to help you heal and move forward
This course is divided into three parts, each with several lectures.
Part 1 will help you understand what traumatic events are, and will also give you an overview of common psychological and physical reactions to experiencing trauma.
Part 2 goes into the specifics of how to manage the symptoms of PTSD. This part of the course contains many exercises, which have been divided up by the type of symptoms you are experiencing. Your symptoms may include painful flashbacks and difficult memories about a traumatic event or events; a pattern of avoiding trauma-related situations and triggers; and a sense of being overwhelmed by or having difficulty with emotions and relationships.
Part 3 discusses ways to get more professional help if you need it. It also explores ways to get more support and take care of your physical health, particularly after you have had some relief of your current symptoms.
