"Research has confirmed the effectiveness of certain trauma-focused therapies in treating PTSD. Engaging in therapy can help reduce your symptoms and improve your quality of life.
One of the available, research-supported approaches to treating PTSD is called exposure therapy. In this therapy, the focus is on decreasing the fear that is associated with the trauma memories, thoughts, feelings, and even other situations which might remind you of the traumatic experience. By revisiting trauma memories in a safe and supportive environment, the fear and distress associated with those memories will diminish over time."
