“A 2010 report on 49,425 veterans with newly diagnosed PTSD from the Iraq and Afghanistan wars who sought care from the VA
.
.
showed that fewer than one out of ten actually completed the recommended treatment.
.
.
As in Pitman’s Vietnam veterans, exposure treatment, as currently practiced, rarely works for them.
.
.
We can only “process” horrendous experiences if they do not overwhelm us.
.
.
And that means that other approaches are necessary.”
