Coping with PTSD the VA way…

The symptom focused model teaches individuals, often with the aid of pharmacological therapies – medication, how to cope with the thoughts, feelings, and actions that may be related to psychological trauma caused in theater by combat, accident or assault and then retained in memory for an indefinite time.  Those coping techniques include such methods as Cognitive Behavioral, Behavioral, and unstructured psycho dynamic therapies.  They teach veterans and families how to recognize prospective PTSD symptoms and to adapt positively to then.  That teaching - learning activity or behavioral modification technique is inclined in such a way that those aspects of the models showing how to think are intended to remain with the veteran for life.  The professionals and veterans hope that with the help of some medications and the forever continuing coping efforts, PTSD’s symptoms will be mastered and eventually controlled so that the disorder is much less a life discomfort for everyone involved.  Learning to cope with PTSD is a lifetime experience, guaranteed.

Finally, No More PTSD!

That’s not just American Veterans Centers special treatment model’s approach.  It’s our promise!

How do we use that “special approach” to cure psychological trauma and PTSD?  To start, we separate combat  PTSD from other problems that while prevalent may have similar symptoms that get in the way of treating  combat or related traumas.  For example, Chemical Dependency and some other issues also occurring co morbid  (simultaneously) like borderline personality and bi-polar disorders, plus life traumatic events that happened before  or after can also interfere with the trauma’s fully or partially successful address.  In our parlance, that complete address means complete trauma resolution.  And that resolution is the PTSD’s equally complete cure.  American Veterans Centers employs the unique set of formulas provided by Etiotropic Trauma Management™  (ETM) to evaluate the myriad and convoluting issues and then present the veteran with a clear, certain, and  always congruent approach that is assured to totally prevent the interference introduced by those co morbid and  sometimes obfuscating issues.  Once the path for complete resolution is set out by ETM’s guidelines, it is implemented with the highly structured Trauma Resolution Therapy™ (TRT).  It focuses the full resolution effort on the trauma’s etiology, as it is the source or cause of the trauma.  Once that underpinning etiology is expunged or otherwise removed, thought, feeling and behavioral responses to the trauma dissipate.  Complete resolution of combat trauma with TRT cures both psychological trauma and its behaviorally recognized counterpart, PTSD.
