I do not have first hand experience but this is what I have learned works well for PTSD.
Several forms of therapy may be used to treat both children and adults with post-traumatic stress disorder. Which form is best for you depends on your symptoms and situation. You may try one type and then a different type of therapy, or combine elements of several. You may also try individual therapy, group therapy or both. Group therapy can offer a way to connect to others going through similar experiences.
Some types of therapy used in PTSD treatment include:
Cognitive therapy. This type of talk therapy helps you identify and change self-destructive thought (cognitive) patterns.
Exposure therapy. This behavioral therapy technique helps you safely confront the very thing that you find upsetting or disturbing, so that you can learn to cope effectively with it.
Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR). This type of therapy combines exposure therapy with a series of guided eye movements that help you process traumatic memories.
Cognitive behavior therapy. This approach combines cognitive and behavior therapy to help you identify unhealthy beliefs and behaviors and replace them with positive ones.
All these approaches can help you gain control of the fear and distress that happen after a traumatic event. The type of therapy that may be best for you depends on a number of factors that you and your health care professional can discuss. (Reference: Mayo)
