What is PTSD? What are the symptoms I might experience?? What types of effective treatments are available?

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder is much more common that most people realize. PTSD is not just for war survivors but anyone who has gone through an awful or painful experience that although the experience is finished it is still having an affect on the person. It may not be something the person is continuing thinking about but when the person has thoughts about the experience or anything in their environment reminds them of the experience even subconsciously they have a negative physical or emotional reaction.

The typical symptoms people may experience are depression, anxiety, anger, guilt and shame, sexual issues, medical problems, relationship issues, eating disorders, obsessions and compulsions, self-destructive behavior, dependency and addictions, and panic attacks.

Rapid Resolution Therapy is the most effective treatment for PTSD. RRT is a breakthrough approach and represents a paradigm shift from traditional therapeutic methods. RRT is fast, painless, and complete. Instead of it being up to the client to make the change for themselves, it is the therapist job to make the change for the client. If it was up to the client to make the changes, they already would have. Clearly they don't like feeling or reacting the way they have been. Even the best heart surgeon isn't able to perform the surgery on himself. He doesn't have enough distance.

Emotional problems do not get better by having more of an understanding of why the person is feeling the way they are feeling. The intellectual part of the mind isn't directly connected to the feeling part of the mind. That is why someone can intellectually understand and maybe briefly feel better but then something happens and they get retriggered.

RRT eliminates the triggers by updating the primitive part of the mind which has never gotten the good new the threatening situation is over. Once it realizes the threat is gone it stops confusing thoughts about the bad experience and situations similar to the bad event with the experience itself. The person is free and no longer troubled. Rapid Resolution Therapy truly heals the invisible emotional wounds and heals those who are experiencing Post Traumatic Stress. Even better, this is a fast and painless process for the client and often times can be completed in a single office visit.
