4 - 5:30 P.M.
Location: 
Online via Zoom

A new group for adults with a diagnosis of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) begins March 1 at The Village Family Service Center in Fargo. Cognitive Processing Therapy for PTSD will be held from 4 to 5:30 pm Mondays for 12 weeks and will meet via Zoom.

Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) is an evidence-based treatment for PTSD. By looking at the impact of a traumatic event and changing unhelpful thoughts and feelings about it, you can reduce distress and feelings of anxiety, anger, guilt, and shame. Your day-to-day living will improve.

Participants will:

  • Learn to identify and challenge unhelpful thinking patterns
  • Explore the long-term impact of a traumatic experience without having to discuss the trauma details
  • Practice skills to recognize evidence for their thoughts and discover more balanced beliefs

Insurance is accepted. To register for the group, call 701-451-4900.
