Therapy for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) has taken center stage for mental health. As the tragedies for many veterans continue to play out post-war, the education and research regarding PTSD have recognized the varied events, encounters, experiences, and responses in which PTSD can affect multiple types of individuals. Especially now, more than ever, our lives leave us in a vulnerable and chronic state of trauma exposure. Sometimes, recognizing the impacts of such exposure can be difficult to identify until it is too late. However, with proper treatment, people can regain control of their lives.

At Seasons in Malibu, our PTSD treatment center in Malibu gives people a place for healing and empowerment. Although it can be intimidating to reach out for help from a team of experienced professionals, the sooner someone receives the post-traumatic stress-disorder treatment they need, the better they will feel.

Common Causes of PTSD

Although no two situations are the same, some of the most common causes of PTSD include:

  • Combat events
  • Terrorism
  • Verbal, physical, or sexual abuse
  • Childhood abuse or neglect
  • Death of a loved one
  • Natural disasters

The Symptoms of PTSD

Post-traumatic stress disorder is most drastically highlighted by a selection of symptoms that revolve around reliving and constantly facing the traumatic event itself.

Symptoms of PTSD include:

  • Flashbacks
  • Nightmares
  • Insomnia
  • Anxiety and panic attacks
  • Avoiding people and places
  • Numbness
  • Lack of interest in life
  • Depression

It’s a long list of symptoms that could very well mean something else, but typically what highlights PTSD and sets it apart from other disorders is the constant presence and repeated reminder of the trauma that started all of this in the first place.
