    Hello.

    Anyone on Torn that's also studying an undergraduate in psychology?

    First year of study next year for me personally. Pretty excited but also pretty nervous.

    I plan on pursuing a BA in Psych, Master's in Psych, and then PhD in Psych. 

    The ultimate goal is to become a Psychological Researcher working in the field alongside Psychiatrists, Psychologists, Pharmacists, etc.

    I'm in the final year of my Clinical Psychology PhD here, so I'm happy to help however I can.
    You're going to have a great time, psychology is one of the most enjoyable subjects at college!
    I'd be interested in hearing what you believe to be effective treatments for PTSD, and C-PTSD.

    Have a Great Day!

    Cool question! My training and experience point me towards Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), as these are both very good at getting down to the roots of your distressing thoughts and helping you learn cognitive strategies for dealing with them. Either would be fine; I think if you have C-PTSD, I'd point you towards CBT first.

    However, you should also look into Trauma Release Exercises (TRE). These aren't as widely used (in contrast, you'll find CBT practitioners everywhere), but they can be a very powerful treatment for PTSD and can bring relief very quickly. A combination of CBT and TRE sounds good to me.
