Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder Psychoeducation

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder Psychoeducation


Posttraumatic stress disorder is psychoeducation and information about the disease and its treatment for the individual and his family after diagnosis.


The purpose of posttraumatic stress disorder psychoeducation is to give the patient detailed information about what this disorder is, its symptoms, treatment, how to deal with this disorder, and to transfer the knowledge of how these processes will progress to the family as well. The aim of post-traumatic stress disorder psychoeducation is to accept this situation to the patient and to get positive results, as post-traumatic stress disorder can occur in everyone like other mental disorders and it is possible to treat it.



Treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder begins with post-traumatic stress disorder psychoeducation and then continues with medication and psychotherapy.


In addition to the education provided to patients with psychoeducation, this education is also given to raise awareness in healthy individuals, and individuals are informed about the diseases and when the symptoms related to these diseases are observed, early diagnosis can be made possible, this can provide a large amount of information to both the patient and the patient at the stages of accepting the disease or disorder. Posttraumatic stress disorder psychoeducation is also preferred in patients who do not want to start treatment, in patients who started treatment and stopped treatment after a while or when the patient did not respond to the treatment of posttraumatic stress disorder. This can greatly help in treating post-traumatic stress disorder.



After the diagnosis of post-traumatic stress disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder is given to psychoeducation and then the patient is treated with medication and psychotherapy methods. The methods used in psychotherapy are cognitive-behavioral therapies and EMDR (eye movement’s desensitization and reprocessing) therapy are frequently preferred.


Posttraumatic stress disorder can negatively affect the individual, as well as family members and the immediate environment. The family of the patient, who was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder, has a great role here. For the patient to recover rapidly in treatment, family members' approach to the patient should be curative and not incriminating. If the family has the opposite attitude, psychoeducation comes into play here. And this situation is solved by psychoeducation.
