Compiled by Sandy Plone Ph.D.
Dr. Andrew Weil, in his December, 2001 issue of Self-Healing: Creating Natural Health for Your Body and Mind, discussed the symptoms characteristic of the aftermath of trauma, in an article entitled After Trauma. Dr. Weil describes himself as a physician who practices Integrative Medicine, that is, acknowledging the mind/body connection.
Dr. Weil outlines not only the symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, including the risk factors, but also suggests some treatment options, including group therapy, EMDR, (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing), or Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy. Although the upsetting events of September 11, 2001 have passed for many, for those who are interested, this article can be accessed on his website: www.drweilselfhealing.com.
