Toolbox of Coping Strategies for Traumatic Stress
With conditions like post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), a person can have flashbacks and intrusive thoughts, making it difficult to function. You might try to avoid people, places and things that trigger these meddlesome thoughts and erratic behavior. However, being reliant on one coping strategy to the exclusion of others may create anxiety, shut you off to opportunities and make you feel more impeded by your trauma. An arsenal of different coping strategies can help at different times.
