PTSD should be considered "abnormal
Weegy: your thoughts about the sense to which PTSD can be considered abnormal if it is an understandable reaction to external events? Be sure to consider in your response "the four D's" discussion from the first week of the course in determining whether or [ not it makes sense to consider PTSD abnormal and a "disorder." Finally, justify your response with citations from the Learning Resources. It depends on age and stage. Here are some info to help you Types of treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) Trauma-focused cognitive-behavioral therapy. [ Cognitive-behavioral therapy for PTSD and trauma involves carefully and gradually ?exposing? yourself to thoughts, feelings, and situations that remind you of the trauma. Therapy also involves identifying upsetting thoughts about the traumatic event?particularly thoughts that are distorted and irrational?and replacing them with more balanced picture. Family therapy. Since PTSD affects both you and those close to you, family therapy can be especially productive. Family therapy can help your loved ones understand what you?re going through. It can also help everyone in the family communicate better and work through relationship problems caused by PTSD symptoms. Medication is sometimes prescribed to people with PTSD to relieve secondary symptoms of depression or anxiety. Antidepressants such as Prozac and Zoloft are the medications most commonly used for PTSD. While antidepressants may help you feel less sad, worried, or on edge, they do not treat the causes of PTSD. EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) incorporates elements of cognitive-behavioral therapy with eye movements or other forms of rhythmic, left-right stimulation, such as hand taps or sounds. Eye movements and other bilateral forms of stimulation are thought to work by ?unfreezing? the brain?s information processing system, which is interrupted in times of extreme stress. ] ] (More)
