Nearly all adults in the U.S. have experienced a traumatic event in their lives. Up to 20% of these will go on to develop Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). This is not a condition exclusive to veterans (although they do experience it at a higher rate than the general population). There are several methods used to address PTSD in therapy. Our guest this week presents a new type of treatment, one that promises to do more than just treat the symptoms, but get to the root of the problem. The goal is not to just survive PTSD, but to thrive in spite of it.
