How Is PTSD Prevented?
Experts think PTSD is one of the most preventable of psychiatric disorders. Studies show that cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) can be effective immediately after major disasters. Counselors are often brought in to help people deal with the immediate aftermath of a tragedy.
Many types of interventions are effective in preventing PTSD right after someone experiences a traumatic event. Intensive therapy isn’t needed for everyone. Knowing which individuals are at the highest genetic risk for PTSD could someday help doctors target interventions more effectively.
