PSYCHOLOGICAL EVALUATION RESEARCH AND COUNSELING CLINIC

 
General Information
Description of ServiceOffers services to children and their families suffering from traumatic experiences and post-traumatic stress disorder. Cognitive-behavior therapy and exposure therapy are the preferred modes of treatment for PTSD. In Cognitive-behavior therapy your therapist helps you understand and change the way you think, feel and behave in response to your traumatic experience. You will learn how to identify problematic thoughts about yourself and the world that are making you fearful and have resulted in you withdrawing from previously enjoyable activities. With the help of your therapist, you will learn how to replace these thoughts with less distressing ones and behave in effective and self-fulfilling ways. Exposure therapy is an important part of CBT. In exposure therapy the goal is to confront your fears. Your therapist will help you to stop avoiding those thoughts, feelings and situations that have caused you so much distress. Exposure therapy may involve simply discussing your concerns in detail. By talking about your trauma in-depth and frequently with a therapist, you will learn how to control these unwanted thoughts and feelings. You learn to stop fearing your past. This may be hard at first; it might be difficult to intentionally confront and deal with painful thoughts and feelings. Your therapist will guide you through this process. All services are provided in a professional and ethical manner and conform to the ethical standards of the American Psychological Association. Any materials related to the assessment or treatment will not be released without the written consent of the client, except where mandated by the law. Call for more detailed information.
