PTSD symptom management skills group for women - in-home via

For Women Veterans who are struggling with PTSD symptoms
Run by Dr. Julie Kahler (supervised by Dr. Genevieve Davis)

Two groups with eight-week of sessions will run with start dates of: August 29 & October 24, 2019.

Call for an initial meeting with a group leader will be setup to see if this group is a good match for you (see details below).

The meetings will be scheduled Thursdays from 8:00 to 11:00 a.m.

Class topics covered over 8 sessions on strategies for reducing PTSD symptoms:
? The 8-week group focuses on SKILLS and TOOLS that can be used every day to help manage PTSD symptoms.
? Topics include reducing anxiety, managing trauma memories, improving sleep, reducing avoidance, coping with nightmares, and much more!
? This program is here-and-now focused. We DO NOT recount trauma details in groups; we DO support women who may be doing that in individual therapy.
? We focus on ways to help improve quality of life. You can be a trauma survivor AND have a life!
