Treatments

Psychological treatments are considered first-line treatment for PTSD. These include cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), exposure and cognitive therapies, and eye movement desensitization and reprocessing therapy (EMDR). These are sometimes combined with pharmacological treatments, including antidepressants, which may also be administered without accompanying therapies. This category covers both pharmacological and psychological treatments, as well as alternative physical treatments such as transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS).
