Cognitive Behavior Therapy Tools

One of the rough things about PTSD is that (in addition to chemical cascade our brains endure when we're triggered) what we feel and think is often adaptive to the way we once had to live.

But what once kept us safe is not necessarily useful now. Sometimes it's downright counterproductive. Staying with the old ways of thinking is like wearing a set of glasses designed for the wrong prescription.

With these Cognitive Behavior Therapy tools, you can get a clearer view of the present moment, not see everything through the distorting lenses of the past.

It's important for many of us to dig through the past and find the truth amid all the lies we were told. That process takes a lot of time and work. For now, these tips can help you deal with stress in the present.
