Four Phases of PTSD Recovery


Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) can destroy families, dismantle marriages and leave its victims reliving a nightmare. But help is available, and there is hope for PTSD sufferers and their families. Dr. Frank Lawlis, chairman of the Dr. Phil Advisory Board and author of The PTSD Breakthrough, offers the four phases of PTSD recovery:



Phase One: Healing of the Brain
            -- Relaxation training
            -- Sonic rhythms/music
            -- Chewing gum


Phase Two: Focusing


Phase Three: Fear and Rage

Phase Four: Finding Your Compass
