Where can I learn about trauma-focused treatment options?

As noted above, individuals who have experienced trauma may develop a variety of mental health difficulties following the traumatic event, including but not limited to Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Individuals who suffer from PTSD often benefit from evidence-based treatment targeting the specific symptoms related to the traumatic experience.  The National Center for PTSD is considered to be the center of excellence for research and education on the prevention, understanding, and treatment of PTSD. Their website provides a wealth of information regarding available treatments for PTSD, self-help and coping, and PTSD research.
