Your 4 Week Education Program
Gather up with us for a one-of-a-kind four-week PTSD therapy program. Our intense program is a four week, six-session education program.
Psychoeducation by therapists from Real Connections Counseling, LLC, means you are provided education designed to empower you and your support network to optimally deal with your situation. What is psychoeducation? PTSD Psychoeducation means you’ll learn about the impact of your traumatic event, including what’s happened to you after trauma. You’ll learn about what is happening to your mind, body, and relationships. And you’ll learn steps, strategies and steps, and resources to better handle it.
What Will I Learn?
Things you will learn during this program include:
- What is Acute Stress Disorder (ASD), Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Complex PTSD?
- How trauma affects the brain, body, emotions, memory and coping skills.
- Relaxation and other grounding techniques
- Coping with triggers
- Handling relationships with others
- Building resiliency
Is This Education Program Right For Me?
The psychoeducation curriculum will be somewhat individually tailored to different traumatic experiences. These include: combat/deployment, grief and loss, single episode, childhood trauma, sexual trauma, compounding trauma and secondary trauma. You’ll learn the steps needed to heal, but also gain strategies that can help you in the moment, and going forward.
This entire program is completed at the Real Connections Counseling Center at 2600 Vine St, Ste 100. in West Des Moines, IA.
