Prolonged Exposure Therapy is an evidence-based treatment with a high rate of
success in alleviating symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.  It was
developed by Dr. Edna Foa, the Director of the Center for the Treatment and
Study of Anxiety.  It involves
"discussing frightening thoughts, breathing
retraining, confronting safe situations, and/or by revisiting and recounting painful
memories in order to process them and reduce their emotional impact."

I was lucky enough to be trained in Prolonged Exposure Therapy by Dr. Foa
herself.  Please feel free to call me if you have any questions about this treatment,
how it works, and whether it may be helpful to you.
