Complex PTSD (CPTSD) and Strategies to Cope: Read more below…

Internal Family Systems Theory #IFS #EMDR #Yoga and #meditation all have their place in treatment of CPTSD but can also be very triggering if not implemented carefully and at a time appropriate for the individual.
Unlike single incident PTSD, cPTSD creates a pervasive feeling of unsafeness and disempowerment in most situations. However, like PTSD and BPD, helping the person develop a sense of safety and empowerment then integrating the traumatic experiences can help decondition traumatic stimuli and integrate trauma memory fragments that are stored in the amygdala and throughout the body.
