In this set of articles posted in November, we have been exploring several topics related to Complex Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (CPTSD) and Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs). We have examined how ACEs change our brain structure, cause mental health issues and how they relate to CPTSD.
All these “negatives” may have left you feeling despair or even fear. However, in this article, we are going to explore the treatment options available today and how these treatment options can change the life of someone who is experiencing the effects of CPTSD.
Progress is Continuing
There has been much progress made in this past decade about ACEs and the treatment of CPTSD.
When I began treatment in 1990, we were just beginning to see how childhood maltreatment caused damage which was not solely to the brain, we were also learning of the physical damages, as well.
