,,New guidelines for dealing with post traumatic stress disorder

National Institute for Clinical Excellence, UK, has provided new guidelines //for dealing with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). The new guidelines suggest that psychological therapy be given to victims of PTSD.

Surviving a disaster, natural or man made is always tough. NICE had emphasized that apart from providing food, clothing shelter to these traumatized people it is also important to give them psychological care to help them rebuild their lives.

The guidelines suggested by NICE says that every disaster is different in terms of what it destroys and how it affects people. Hence special disaster planning needs to be done to cater to every different form of disaster and the anguish it inflicts upon men who suffer.

Some symptoms of PTSD are flashbacks; sleep problems, difficulty in concentrating, and emotional instability that may be present for four weeks after traumatic events. At this stage the medical practitioners are asked to be watchful and waiting and not jump into early psychological intervention. Only after this the physicians need to intervene when the patients are diagnosed with depression, suicidal tendencies, addiction, medically unexplained physical symptoms, or dissociative disorders after a month of the disaster happening.

In keeping with the past tsunami disaster, the new guidelines may be especially helpful for counselors working in that sector.
