There are many forms of treatment for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). The treatment option I would deploy in a disaster situation is therapy. According to our text there a two types of therapy options cognitive behavior and mindfulness. Cognitive behavior is used to treat cases of self-blame and PTSD. Mindfulness is a subset of cognitive therapy. These practices and identification of self-blame help the patients manage though processes leading to increased amounts of self-blame and shame (King, et al., 2013). Cognitive behavioral therapy is focused on helping individuals manage their own thought process, recalling negative experiences as a means of understanding the impacts those recollections have on the ways in which blame is assigned (Matthews, 2008). Mindfulness helps the patient by coming to understand ones own thought process, patients suffering from acute anxiety are able to arrive at a place of acceptance of their thoughts leading to the ability to function in the presence of negative thoughts and tremendous amounts of self-blame. These techniques help does affected by PTSD to heal from within without the use of outside sources like drugs. I never felt as if drugs should be the answer but I understand the need for them. These drugs can also become a negative aspect of a persons life. We can develop long-term tolerance (needing more of the drugs to achieve the same effect) and withdrawal symptoms (physical effects and discomfort when substance use stops).In children they can negatively impact a childs social and emotional growth as well as their ability to learn.
