Risk factors in PTSD and related disorders: Theoretical, treatment, and research implications
Contemporary treatment approaches for Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) include traditional approaches such as Cognitive-Behavioral therapy, Psychodynamic therapy, Group Therapy, Pharmacotherapy, et cetera, as well as experimental approaches such as Body therapies (e.g., Sensorimotor Processing) (Ogden & Minton, in press) and other Asian-based approaches (often termed “Energy Therapies”). These approaches have varying degrees of data in support of their effectiveness, that range from anecdotal case reports to randomized and controlled studies (e.g., see Dietrich, et al., 2000; Foa, Keane, & Friedman, 2000; Shalev, Bonne & Eth, 1996; van der Kolk, McFarlane, & van der Hart, 1996).
