Workers Compensation Treatment for PTSD

 Many do not realize they have been traumatized, believing only war veterans develop Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Anyone can experience a traumatic response when they feel their life and safety is threatened in some way.

“When a trauma occurs it seems to get locked in the nervous system with the original picture, sounds, thoughts, and feelings.”

What is Trauma?

A traumatic reaction is generally a normal response to an extremely abnormal situation such as a car accident, acts of violence, any type of abuse, the unexpected death of a loved one, medical conditions, and any situation which induces high uncertainty and fear.

First responders (e.g., police, fire, and emergency) are frequently exposed to traumatic events and can develop symptoms of PTSD.  However, employees in any line of work can experience a trauma.

Common Trauma Symptoms


  • You may feel like the event is happening again – this is a flashback.
  • You may have nightmares.
  • You may see, hear or smell something that reminds you of the traumatic event.

These are called triggers. Anniversaries, change of seasons and news reports are examples of triggers.

Negative changes in beliefs and feelings

  • You may have trouble forming close relationships with others.
  • You may have trouble trusting others and feel the world is unsafe.
  • You may not be able to talk about the event and may have gaps in memory of it.

Feeling keyed up (hyperarousal)

You may have trouble sleeping.
You may feel on high-alert, as if you are walking on eggshells.
You may have difficulty concentrating


You may avoid people, places or situations because they remind you of the traumatic event.
You may avoid seeking help as you fear having to think and talk about the event.

The good news is there is help and it won’t involve retelling your story.

Counseling that utilizes brain-based approaches can bring you relief from the traumatic memory…not reduction of symptoms but reprocessing of the traumatic memory.

Counseling methods such as Eye Movement Desensitizing Reprocessing (EMDR), Brainspotting (BSP), Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), and Mindfulness based approaches can provide this relief.

These treatments are also helpful for other types of anxiety, mood problems and grief.
