Overview

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) can have far-reaching impact from the suffering individual to their family members. Children with a parent or a partner with their spouse having PTSD may find it difficult to understand why the person with PTSD may be experiencing intense stress or getting angry sometimes. They may experience fear, anger, or even falsely feel guilty about their loved one’s condition. Moreover, counselling that involves the whole family is an effective treatment option.
Family therapy enhances communication between members, helps strengthen relationships, and helps members to learn to cope with their difficult emotions. It allows each member a non-judgemental and safe space to express their feelings and concerns as well as hear out those of the other members. The person with PTSD can discuss their symptoms, their triggers, and what kind of support they need from their family. Moreover, the family, being part of the therapy process, is better equipped to help their loved one deal with and recover gradually from their PTSD.
