ISTSS Treatment Guidelines The revised Treatment Guidelines presented in Effective Treatments for PTSD, Second Edition, were developed under the auspices of the Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Treatment Guidelines Task Force established by the Board of Directors of the International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies (ISTSS) in 2005. The revised version of the guidelines replaces those published in 2000 and are based on an extensive review of the clinical and research literature prepared by experts in each field and intended to assist clinicians who provide treatment for adults, adolescents and children with PTSD. Because clinicians with diverse professional backgrounds provide mental health treatment for PTSD, the Guidelines were developed with interdisciplinary input. Psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, creative arts therapists, marital therapists and others actively contributed to and participated in the development process.

What is stress? - Glasgow STEPS Stress is not the same as a fit of the blues, feeling a bit uptight or having a bad day. While some days may be worse than others, stress is something that gets a grip of you and does not let go. You may feel your life is turned upside down by it. You may feel it changes your nature. It often involves: a range of feelings anxiety, fear, sadness, panic, guilt, anger and dissatisfied about yourself and your life. a range of thoughts thoughts about what could go wrong. a range of actions you avoid places in case something bad happens to you. a range of body symptoms you often feel unwell and tense. As most people see themselves like this, it makes more sense to talk of stress rather than just 'anxiety' or just 'depression'.

Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy [Download the NAMI CBT fact sheet.] What is CBT? Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a form of treatment that focuses on examining the relationships between thoughts, feelings and behaviors. By exploring patterns of thinking that lead to self-destructive actions and the beliefs that direct these thoughts, people with mental illness can modify their patterns of thinking to improve coping. CBT is a type of psychotherapy that is different from traditional psychodynamic psychotherapy in that the therapist and the patient will actively work together to help the patient recover from their mental illness. People who seek CBT can expect their therapist to be problem-focused, and goal-directed in addressing the challenging symptoms of mental illnesses. A person who is depressed may have the belief, "I am worthless," and a person with panic disorder may have the belief, "I am in danger." When is CBT used as a form of therapy? CBT is also a useful treatment for anxiety disorders.
