    Anxiety and Agoraphobia Treatment Center - Anxiety Disorder TreatmentsAATC provides help for all anxiety disorders including; obsessive-compulsive disorder, panic disorder, social phobia, simple phobias, post-traumatic stress disorder and depression. When indicated, treatment may include spouses and and other family members in addition to individual sessions. Because many anxiety disorders originate during childhood, a separate program for the treatment of children was established in 1991. Finally, group treatment is often available for selected anxiety problems. AATC is dedicated to trying to help those suffering from anxiety not only through therapy, but through education and community service. Our staff members regularly present our work at national scientific conferences and local presentations in an effort to train and educate other clinicians and the lay public. Because of our commitment to the community of those suffering from anxiety, we offer two free support groups, one for obsessive compulsive disorder and the other for panic disorder. For those who may not be able to afford therapy, lower cost therapy is available through our interns. Our interns are doctoral students in clinical psychology who are trained and supervised by AATC staff. They have come from Temple University, University of Pennsylvania, Bryn Mawr and La Salle.MontgomeryThe Anxiety and Agoraphobia Treatment Center - Montgomery; Bala CynwydAnxiety and Agoraphobia Treatment Center

People who cannot resolve the impact of one or more of the following: -A traumatic, overwhelming event. -A death or other loss. -A series of stressful events. What Is Involved? An initial step in crisis work is exploring the impact of the crisis on the person or persons involved. Crisis intervention is designed to guide clients toward mastery of the circumstances that seem to be causing the greatest distress. Reducing the immediate crisis is necessary in order to gain the emotional clarity to make positive future decisions. How Does Crisis Intervention Work? -Explore the activating event(s). -Assess the symbolic meaning of the event. -Examine the coping skills used in the past. -Focus on why past coping resources no longer work. -Determine whether client is a danger to self or others. -Develop problem-solving techniques. -Implement specific goals.Chester*Main Site (Daemion Counseling Center)Daemion Counseling Center

    Equines for Freedom-PTSD TherapyEFF uses one of the most effective treatments available; Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) which offers clients a nontraditional approach to therapy. This therapy combines a licensed mental health professional, a certified equine specialist, and a therapy horse to create a research-based treatment model which strives to resolve emotional difficulties caused by disturbing, difficult, or frightening life experiences. The horse is an integral part of treatment because horses are prey animals and therefore are extremely alert and sensitive to the emotions of those around them. Clients learn to identify their own emotional state by observing the horse’s reactions. The horse also helps the client stay grounded as they process past traumas.WyomingEquines for Freedom-PTSD TherapyEquines for Freedom

    United States Department of Defense, National Center for Telehealth and Technology - AfterDeploymentIn 2006, Congress mandated the U.S. Department of Defense to develop an online resource addressing post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and other mental health conditions commonly occurring after a deployment. A recent Institute of Medicine (IOM) study found that 13 to 20 percent of the 2.6 million service members deployed to Iraq or Afghanistan since 2001 may suffer from PTSD. The IOM noted that only slightly more than half of those diagnosed with PTSD actually received treatment. This “treatment gap” was viewed to be the result of three factors: stigma, difficulty accessing care and health care workers not suitably trained to treat PTSD. The need is clear. To meet this need, the Defense Department’s National Center for Telehealth & Technology (T2) developed, and maintains, AfterDeployment (AD). The website was designed to work as a self-care solution. While the general congressional mandate was to focus on the period after deployment, the content, crafted to provide topical comprehensiveness, evolved to more broadly cover the entire deployment spectrum, from pre-deployment through deployment to redeployment. Features were developed to provide an immersive, interactive experience. The material was aimed at a diverse population with the intention of normalizing adjustment problems following a deployment. AD continues to evolve and gain recognition. In 2010 a “Provider Portal” was introduced to add support for health care professionals treating patients with behavioral health issues. The 2013 Interagency Task Force on Military and Veterans Mental Heath Interim Report recognized AD as a premiere DoD web-based psychological health care tool. As AD passes its 5th year anniversary milestone, exciting plans are underway that include expanding content and developing innovative design concepts to enhance user experience.
