A revolutionary approach to treating PTSD
from The New York Times
Psychomotor therapy is neither widely practiced nor supported by clinical studies. Dr. Bessel van der Kolk has spent four decades studying and trying to treat the effects of the worst atrocities: war, rape, incest, torture and physical and mental abuse. He has written more than 100 peer-reviewed papers on psychological trauma. Trained as a psychiatrist, he treats more than a dozen patients a week in private practice and he oversees a nonprofit clinic in Boston, the Trauma Center, that treats hundreds more. If there's one thing he's certain about, it's that standard treatments are not working. Patients are still suffering, and so are their families.
