The Bridge Counseling Center at Open Sky Community Services
Welcome to our Counseling Center!
Open Sky and its predecessors have been providing compassionate, evidence-based human services since 1973. These proven treatments have been available to individuals referred to us through the Department of Mental Health (DMH), Department of Children and Families (DCF) and others. Now, we are pleased to offer a highly effective treatment for Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) for the general public.
Cognitive Restructuring for Posttraumatic Stress Disorder
The treatment is called Cognitive Restructuring for Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (CR for PTSD) and it is designed for people who have a diagnosis of PTSD and often experience flashbacks, intrusive memories or images, difficulty sleeping and avoidance of things that remind them of the fearful situation. The clinician partners with the client to work on changing troublesome thoughts, beliefs and behaviors.
An important aspect of this treatment is that it does not require the client to "relive" the trauma.
