PTSD, now what?: PTSD is caused by exposure to some type of trauma—directly or vicariously. A large body of research suggests that Trauma-focused cognitive behavior therapy (TFCBT) is highly effective in treating PTSD. Your therapist might address your PTSD-symptoms or refer you to a TFCBT practitioner. An open discussion with your therapist about this diagnosis and treatment plan might help you with next steps.
