Problems with SSRIs in the treatment of traumatic syndromes
This workshop will focus on the biological and clinical evidence supporting the notion that depression, dissociation, somatization, and PTSD may be symptomatic responses to traumatic events which affect the brain. The safety of SSRls and their application for the treatment of PTSD will be discussed as will the complications arising from their short and long lerm use. Single system designated case studies, will be used to demonstrate how treatment with EMDR allows one to arrive at successful outcomes in trauma spectrum disorders, with or without psychopharmacology.
