We offer a trauma recovery treatment for current and retired service personnel, and first responders suffering with PTSD.
South Coast Private has adopted an innovative approach to the management of PTSD in accordance with the National Treatment of PTSD Guidelines. Eligible patients are provided with intensive inpatient one-to-one treatment using trauma-focused Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (for PTSD). Please note; Health fund approval is required to participate in these programs.
We run two types of programs for patients with PTSD. The initial three week group therapy program provides a psycho-educative format by which patients develop insight into the nature of PTSD, symptom management, interpersonal sequelae, and relapse prevention. The group program also provides a stepping stone to the more intensive trauma processing program.
This program is designed to provide a safe treatment setting. Sessions implement skills and techniques to help manage the effects of living with a psychological Injury more effectively, understand its impact on one's self and on others as well as encouraging to return to work and life.
