UCF RESTORES understands the impact of PTSD extends farther than just one person. Instead, entire families and communities often experience the indirect effects of trauma. To provide support for those with loved ones suffering in the aftermath of a traumatic event, UCF RESTORES offers a PTSD Family Series to provide family members with education about PTSD and other stress reactions. The goal of the series is to offer greater insight into the collective impact of PTSD on the individual and family dynamic. Anyone who has a loved one suffering from PTSD is welcome to attend.
Series topics include:
• Symptoms of PTSD and influence on thoughts and behavior
• Available treatment for PTSD and the myths/truths of exposure therapy
• Healthy communication strategies and knowing when to seek professional help
• Self-care and coping strategies for those caring for someone with PTSD
Anyone who has a loved one suffering from PTSD is welcome to attend. If you or any you know would benefit from this series, please contact Monica Friedman at 407-823-1196 to discuss enrollment details.
