I think ptsd is the best example of a complex
disorder that seems environmentally produced,
with actual changes resulting in the brain. I
suspect the most effective treatments incorporate
many different elements, around a cornerstone
of a strong therapeutic alliance with the
Some people need more meds and support, with an
ADL (activities of daily living) focus; others
benefit more from insight-oriented (or cognitive-
behavioural) talk therapy and only the occasional
meds. It is therefore crucial to get an
experienced therapist who is
comfortable with both categories of treatment
(plus a little EMDR never hurt), and who can
individualize the therapy.
