I hope you didn't think that my last post listed the only options for PTSD recovery! Here are 5 more:

Information processing – Changing our perceptions of events on the subconscious level changes our thoughts, which in turn changes our emotions and thus our behavior. These modalities include such trauma specific therapies as Thought Field Therapy, Emotional Freedom Technique, Tapas Accupressure Technique, and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. In this type of therapy the present is stressed and the past not deeply discussed.

Hypnotherapy – This type of therapy also focuses on changing perceptions of events on the subconscious level, through the power of suggestion. Therapies include hypnosis, Neurolinguistic Programming, and Time Line Therapy. In these forms of treatment the PTSD experiencer focuses on imagining a new future rather than rehashing the past.

Neuro-Linguistic Programming -- NLP techniques sever and recreate neural pathways by using language to reframe, redirect and reorganize the coding of experience in the brain.


Medication – The use of pharmacological agents in treating PTSD largely focuses on controlling PTSD symptoms so that the sufferer can better use and focus his/her energy toward healing. Such agents include antidepressants, antipsychotics, anxiolytics, and mood stabilizers.

Self-empowered recovery – A process of recovery motivated and directed by the PTSD experiencer. One in which he or she takes responsibility for healing, participates in the process, and consciously engages in choosing actions designed to progress healing.

This is a comprehensive (although by no means all-inclusive) list. For more information on all of these modalities, click here.
