PTSD, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, is a mental health condition which affects millions worldwide. Today, although most closely identified with combat veterans, PTSD can affect any individual who experiences a traumatic event such as a first responder, a victim of violence, or natural disaster. Identifying symptoms may include:
- Changes in behavior including feelings of shame, fear or guilt;
- Avoidance of situations, persons, places or things which remind you of a traumatic or negative event;
- Reliving the negative events with flashbacks, nightmares, anxiety or insomnia.”
ART restores mental health by replacing PTSD images with the use of Positization via rapid eye movement therapy.
“Our memories belong to us; they are our property. We can evict the bad and invite good images to take their place. We no longer have to be victimized and triggered by disturbing memories. Keep the Knowledge, Lose the Pain.” – Laney Rosenzweig
