Hi there, thank you for the question. PTSD is something that we can treat into remission, experiencing minimal to no symptoms. It’s a really adaptive condition that’s kind of like a smoke detector that has become overly sensitive, to ensure that we don’t get into similar situations that our brain has told us are dangerous. Re-wiring our responses can take time and dedication on behalf of both of the client and therapist. It can be really uncomfortable.
Booking an appointment with a trained therapist who is familiar and/or certified with evidence based practices (EBPs) for PTSD is essential (Cognitive Processing Therapy, EMDR, and Prolonged Exposure Therapy). Here is some more information on treatments that have been endorsed by the VA: https://www.ptsd.va.gov/understand_tx/talk_therapy.asp
