PROLONGED EXPOSURE THERAPY FOR PTSD

BROOKLYN HEIGHTS BEHAVIORAL ASSOCIATES: mindfulness

DIALECTICAL BEHAVIORAL THERAPY PROLONGED EXPOSURE (DBT PE) protocol promotes new learning to reduce anxiety and fear for people experiencing trauma, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and borderline personality disorder (BPD).  This evidence-based treatment challenges you to gain new perspectives on your trauma with Prolonged Exposure Therapy (PE), while giving you the opportunity to use the coping skills acquired in DBT. BHBA therapists are trained in DBT Prolonged Exposure by treatment developer Dr. Melanie Harned.  We can help you decrease your trauma-related emotions and symptoms by gradually revisiting traumatic thoughts and situations. DBT PE reduces your responses to triggers, increases confidence in your own resiliency, and helps you discover a new quality of life and engagement.
