'Psychotherapy for Chronic PTSD with Frank Ochberg - Part 1' is part of a series of films from Psychotherapy.net. How does PTSD look from the inside, and how is it treated? In this unique training video, we find out firsthand from Terry, a Vietnam vet who witnessed his friend's brutal death in combat. We then follow his post-combat life: the struggle of living with PTSD for 40 years, and finally getting his life back with the help of renowned PTSD expert Dr. Frank Ochberg. Through revealing personal interviews, commentary, and actual therapy sessions between Terry and Dr. Ochberg, this comprehensive video documents Terry's two-year-long therapeutic process of healing from chronic PTSD. Terry's courage in sharing the intimate details of his thoughts, feelings, and behaviors through his struggle brings a rare depth and insight to Ochberg's step-by-step explanations and demonstrations of PTSD-specific techniques and strategies. Trauma has become an ever more common life experience, and knowing how to treat someone with PTSD should be a part of every therapist's repertoire. This video offers a unique window into both the great suffering that PTSD can create in our clients, and the journey toward reclaiming the richness and meaning in their lives.
