PTSD and Overcoming Trauma – 2 CEUs

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a common reaction to experiencing something traumatic. To have a diagnosis of PTSD, a person needed to have been exposed to a traumatic event that involved death, threat of death, injury, or threat to physical safety of yourself or someone else. Many people who have experienced traumatic events feel anxious and worried most of the time. Anxiety takes its toll on the body and mind. Some techniques shared in this course involve calming the body, changing or just observing thoughts, and focus on relaxed, deep breathing. Retraining the anxious body and mind takes time, but it’s a key step in healing.
