Finding Relief For PTSD Veterans

Complete recovery from traumatic stress can be a challenge, but with the right support and resources, it is possible. PTSD awareness is growing in both the military and civilian population, and more resources are becoming available to help those who suffer from PTSD.

There are many different forms of relief for PTSD veterans, depending on their individual needs. Some of the most effective forms of relief include meditation, talk therapy, mindfulness practices, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), art/music therapy, exercise, yoga/tai chi, service animals/companion pets, volunteer work/community involvement, and trauma-focused therapies such as Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR). Meditation can also help reduce anxiety symptoms associated with PTSD by allowing people to focus on the present moment, and practice acceptance and talk therapy, can provide a safe space to discuss traumatic experiences and find constructive ways of managing them.

CBT is designed to help one identify patterns in thinking that are causing distress, and works with individuals to change these patterns. Yoga/tai chi can increase relaxation by allowing people to connect their body-mind awareness. In addition, service animals/companion pets have been proven effective in reducing PTSD symptoms, such as isolation and fear of going outside. They also provide unconditional love, which can be extremely comforting. Another effective form of therapy is volunteer work/community involvement, which can provide one with a sense of purpose and help PTSD Veterans feel connected with their community again.

Lastly, trauma-focused therapies such as EMDR can be highly effective in treating PTSD symptoms, as it provides individuals with an opportunity to process traumatic memories in a safe space.

Finding The Right PTSD Treatment Plan

A PTSD treatment plan for veterans needs to be tailored to the individual’s experiences. Many veterans who struggle with post traumatic stress, and finding the best treatment plans often require trial and error.

However, there are some general guidelines that can help you find the right PTSD treatment plan for your veteran client:

  • Connecting with other Veterans: One of the best ways to start creating an effective treatment plan for PTSD is by connecting with other veterans who have experienced similar trauma. These connections allow veterans to feel supported and build much needed resilience.
  • PTSD-Focused Psychological Therapy: PTSD requires a mental health professional, such as a psychologist or psychiatrist, to help the veteran learn how to manage PTSD symptoms and effectively cope with traumatic memories. Various psychological therapies can be used in treatment plans, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Prolonged Exposure (PE) therapy, and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR).
  • Alternative Therapies: Alternative therapies such as mindfulness, yoga, art therapy and music therapy can also provide creative outlets that can be helpful.
