Treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) after a construction accident in Pennsylvania focuses on reducing the emotional and physical effects aftershocks of a serious work-related injury can have. If you have been injured in a work-related construction accident, speak with a Philadelphia construction lawyer about your financial options.

The different therapeutic approaches most successful in treating PTSD are:

  • Cognitive-behavior therapy, which emphasizes a more objective understanding of the thought patterns that solicit alarming and troubling reactions to accident-related stimulus in an attempt to manage those feelings;
  • Exposure therapy, which administers a "re-living" of the accident or experience in a safe and controlled atmosphere so the accident victim might confront the fear itself and gradually be able to control his or her response and feelings toward the event, as well as people, places, or circumstances that elicit a memory of the event;
  • Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy, which is a complex form of therapy designed to minimize PTSD sufferers' reactions to the stimuli that aggravate them and has been highly successful for both PTSD victims and those with extreme phobias; and
  • Psychodynamic therapy, which focuses on enabling victims to analyze personal emotional conflicts or values that may have been affected by the accident.  

If you have been injured in a construction accident in Pennsylvania or New Jersey, contact a Philadelphia construction lawyer who will explore all options for your financial compensation so that you can get the treatment you need to deal with your injury and its consequences.
