POSTRAUMATIC STRESS DISORDER THERAPY IN OMAHA, NE   

 

  

Have you or a loved one suffered a life-changing event? 

 

Are you finding it difficult to cope? 

  

It is perfectly normal to experience strong emotions and a sense of uncertainty after experiencing a traumatic event. However, if you find that you are continuing to experience intense or disturbing thoughts and feelings long after a traumatic event has ended, you may be suffering from Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).  

  

People with PTSD frequently relive past trauma through flashbacks or nightmares and may feel detached from others; avoiding situations or people that remind them of the traumatic event. It is also common to experience strong feelings of fear, anger, sadness, guilt, or shame.  

  

Facts About PTSD 

  

      Over 7 million Americans age 18 and older have been diagnosed with PTSD. 

      67% of people exposed to mass violence have been shown to develop PTSD, a higher rate than those exposed to natural disasters or other types of traumatic events. 

      People who have experienced previous traumatic events run a higher risk of developing Posttraumatic Stress Disorder, which is characterized by three main types of symptoms: 

    • Re-experiencing the trauma through intrusive distressing recollections of the event, flashbacks, and nightmares.
    • Emotional numbness and avoidance of places, people, and activities that are reminders of the trauma.
    • Increased arousal such as difficulty sleeping and concentrating, feeling jumpy, and being easily irritated and angered.
