Strengthening Resilience. Supporting Families.


About PTS(D)

Post-traumatic stress (disorder) is developed after experiencing or witnessing a life threatening event. The consequences of leaving such trauma untreated are serious— many people experience significant negative impact on their physical and mental health, relationships with others and efficacy at work.

Our Strategy

PTS(D) treatment programs have better results when they are flexible and individualized. Our Resiliency Formation Training Series is designed to educate trauma survivors and provide them with a precision-targeted, individualized training plan.

We know human beings are naturally resilient. A trauma survivor is not sick or broken beyond repair. Resiliency Formation Training seeks to awaken and strengthen this resilience.

Family members often want to help their loved one but are unsure what exactly to do or say and may be afraid to engage out of fear of saying or doing the wrong thing. We will provide resources to you, as the support person, to encourage, listen, and be supportive of the one you care about. Our resources are meant both to help you better understand what your loved one has gone through and to help bridge the gap when that person has a hard time talking about his or her experiences.
