Australian Family Physician, a publication of the The Royal Australian College of General Practitioners and the Australian National Survey of Mental Health and Well-being estimate that more than 65 per cent of Australians will experience potentially traumatic events during their lifetime. Current lifetime prevalence rates for trauma are 7.2 per cent, with interpersonal trauma caused by rape, violence, and torture leading to lifetime PTSD prevalence of up to 50 per cent. Today, PTSD remains the single highest type of anxiety disorder in the country.
TF-CBT is recognised and approved as a long-term trauma-focused intervention for the lingering effects of PTSD. Single or multiple instances of trauma often result in complex emotional and behavioural challenges. Future Focus Solutions offers TF-CBT as part of its continued effort towards the proper diagnosis and effective treatment of underlying stress due to PTSD and the broader goal of helping individuals make personal changes in their lives.
The Latrobe Valley psychology practice uses evidence-based TF-CBT to help patients suffering from depression, anxiety, and other effects of trauma. The therapy involves helping patients confront and recognise traumatic memories and triggers, modify behaviour patterns against negative reactions and unhealthy thought patterns, and other therapeutic interventions to manage the follow-up response to the trauma.
According to a spokesperson for the Morwell, Victoria cognitive behavioural therapy specialist, "We are happy to offer our evidence-based TF-CBT service to help people who suffer from the short-term and long-term effects of trauma manage and eventually, overcome the harmful effects."
