Treatments for PTSD in personal injury survivors
One serious psychological consequence often associated with serious MVAs is Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Our caring, experienced therapists provide therapy and support to help alleviate emotional and psychosocial distress, including depression, anxiety, physical pain, nightmares or flashbacks, difficulty sleeping and PTSD symptoms.
Although preventative efforts ultimately may reduce the emotional toll of MVAs, the majority of patients do not seek help shortly after their MVA. More typically, individuals do not understand the emotional symptoms of PTSD and may not seek help for several years, which at that point, PTSD has become chronic and may be difficult to treat.
If you or a family member has been referred for psychological assessment or evaluation, or testing, you probably have some questions about what to expect. Or you may have heard about psychological testing and wonder if you or a family member should be tested. Psychological assessment or evaluation, or testing may sound intimidating, but it's designed to help you.
