Thanks for starting this thread, Draga.

I have just finished a group therapy program for PTSD, here in Toronto at Women's College Hospital.

http://www.womenscollegehospital.ca/index.asp?navid=125

If I could talk to you in person, i could teach you a few things, such as some grounding techniques for dealing with intrusive thoughts and flashbacks.

The one hot new therapy for PTSD is called Sensorimotor Psychotherapy. It is the first therapy to deal with PTSD's bodily, emotional, sensory and kinesthetic effects. (Traumatized folks often feel too little or too much of their emotions and body; or they cannot name their emotions easily, etc.)

A book on Sensorimotor Psychotherapy is called Waking the Tiger by Peter Levine. Another good book is called Coping with Trauma by Jon Allen.

In the latter book, Allen mentions the "90/10 response". That is the idea that the responses generated by a flashback or anxiety attack is rooted 90% in the past, and 10% in what triggered it NOW. That is why it can seem so overwhelmingly powerful and current.

If anyone has any questions, feel free to Private Message me.
