Treatment for Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
This program offers individual treatment for people who have experienced a traumatic event more than one month ago and continue to experience posttraumatic stress reactions that cause them distress and interfere with their daily functioning.
To be eligible for this treatment program you must have been experiencing posttraumatic stress reactions for longer than one month.
As with our other treatment programs, this program is based on Cognitive Behaviour Therapy. Many international studies have concluded that this form of treatment is the best treatment for PTSD. The aim of this study is to examine new ways of enhancing existing CBT treatments.
Treatment involves 11 weekly sessions, each lasting approximately 1 ½ hours.
The government funds the Clinic with research grants in order to investigate treatments for posttraumatic stress and grief. This enables us to provide a free, specialist service.
