Treating PTSD with Steve B. Reed

Presented by
Steve B. Reed, LPC, LMSW, LMFT
Professional Training Seminars


6 Hours of Continuing Education Credit are available for Professional Counselors, Social Workers and Marriage & Family Therapists in Texas

When most people think of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), what comes to mind are the most catastrophic examples.  Events that include war/combat trauma, natural disasters and torture fall into this category.  However, many therapist are surprised to learn that research suggests that the most common cause of PTSD are injury automobile accidents.  Other common PTSD causes can include child abuse (physical, emotional & sexual), childhood neglect, rape, assaults, other injury accidents, domestic violence, and painful medical procedures among others.

Furthermore, research is now showing that even when people do not meet the full DSM-IV clinical criteria for PTSD, that they can still have significant PTSD symptoms. Traumatic and high stress incidents, sufficient enough to leave a profound impact on the emotional mid-brain, occur in nearly everyone’s life.  Such impact events increase our overall stress load, adversely effect physical health, cause emotional over reactivity and degrade the quality of life.  This is what I call Everyday Traumas.

The truth is that it is rare that I see a client who is not effected by either PTSD, Everyday Traumas or High Stress Events.  These occurrences are often the underlying cause of other disorders including phobias, panic attacks, generalized anxiety, secondary depression and traumatic grief.

My observation is that these forms of distress are occurring in epidemic proportions and (with the exception of the most dramatic cases) are often unnoticed in therapy and are going untreated.

“I used the Quick REMAP 4-point Protocol with my most skeptical and deeply suffering client. (Afterwards) she said, ‘I can’t explain it, but I didn’t know I’ve been carrying this weight almost all of my life, and now it has lifted. I feel so much better.’ I have no words to thank you and to tell you how important it is to spread and share this work.”
