Utilize treatment options that rely on interpersonal rhythms, visceral awareness, and vocal and facial communication.
Individuals with PTSD are frozen in a fight-or-flight or chronic shutdown system, as these systems are what helped them survive their trauma. Unfortunately, this also means that they have little interest or capacity to engage socially.
Without social engagement, these individuals are left feeling lost and alone. Therefore, PTSD therapies typically should revolve around helping these individuals access their ability to engage socially, so that in time, they can communicate their thoughts and emotions, and someday heal from the wounds of their trauma.
