Facilitated by our psychologists, this program is designed to help people understand and manage symptoms of post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) to help them learn how to change the unhelpful thoughts and beliefs maintaining the experience. Using Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), participants gain practical tools to reduce stress and physical symptoms across half or full day sessions.
This program reduces trauma-related emotions and symptoms such as guilt, affect control, social adjustment and physical health complaints. Demonstrating how thinking affects mood, and helps participants identify and challenge unhelpful
thoughts. It teaches participants new thought patterns, and reduces re-experiencing, emotional numbing symptoms and behavioural avoidance caused by the PTSD.
Along with attending the group, participants will have individual sessions to construct their own wellness plans where required.
