It is important to note that not all of these steps will be effective for everyone who tries them. No single approach fits everybody, and you may have to try a combination of the above steps until you find the treatment plan that fits you.
Engage in talk therapy.
In this type of treatment, you talk to a therapist or other trained professional in the field of mental health about the problems and symptoms you are facing so as to ultimately understand the cause of them.
Typically, with this type of treatment, you will also form a connection with your therapist and be able to work on your ability to form human connections.
Take prescribed medicines.
Anti-anxiety medication, sleeping medication, anti-depressants, etc. may be prescribed to you to help you cope with some of the symptoms of PTSD.
Work to understand the physical manifestations of your trauma.
The imprints of your trauma, such as feelings of rage, helplessness, and collapse, will manifest in physical actions. Do not ignore these physical manifestations—work to find the underlying cause of them. You can do this through a variety of treatments, such as Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing therapy (EMDR) or Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT).
