Sexual Assault and PTSD (Recovery IS Possible!)

Sexual Assault and PTSD (Recovery IS Possible!) Post traumatic stress disorder is a common response to having lived through a sexual assault. Sometimes the PTSD symptoms occur right away, and sometimes they occur after many years. EMDR, eye movement desensitization and reprocessing, can help cure PTSD naturally. PTSD symptoms include avoidance, intrusive thoughts, and hypervigilance. How does EMDR work? Barbara Heffernan, Approved EMDR consultant and trauma specialist, will explain how EMDR therapy can help PTSD from sexual assault. PTSD avoidance, PTSD intrusive thoughts, and PTSD hypervigilance can get better!
