Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

This is a severe anxiety disorder that usually occurs when one has been in a life-threatening situation. Examples include severe automobile accidents, crimes of violence such as rape and war related events including tragedies like the September 11 attack on the World Trade Center.

Symptoms may include nightmares, feelings of anxiety, flashbacks of the negative event, depressed mood and an inability to return to your normal activities.

Treatment includes both cognitive and physical activities that will help you return to your normal routine. If you have experienced a traumatic event and you have some or all of the above symptoms, a phone call to WCBT will enable us to assess if you truly have PTSD.
