According to Bryant (2006), this type of therapeutic intervention encompasses psychoeducation, cognitive restructuring, anxiety management, imaginal and in vivo exposure, as well as relapse prevention. The client will receive education about stressful reactions to trauma and treatment options, which will help normalize the client’s stress response and enhance the expectancy of recovery. By implementing cognitive restructuring, the clinician will address unrealistic and maladaptive perceptions the client might have about the traumatic event and his fears of potential harm in the future. It will be useful to provide anxiety management strategies to the client in the therapy sessions because they can provide him with a degree of control over his distress and with a sense of relief. The techniques used for anxiety management include muscle relaxation and breathing retraining.
Volatile anesthetics can alter the dopaminergic balance in the brain, but whether they exacerbate PD is unknown. Propofol produces both dyskinesias and ablation of resting tremor, suggesting that it has both excitatory and inhibitory effects in this patient population. But both volatile agents as well as propofol has been successfully to sedate patients with PD during deep brain stimulation surgery. Dexmeditomidine appears to be safe and when used in deep brain stimulation surgery has advantage of not interfering with motor symptoms. Ketamine should be used with caution because of potential interaction between levodopa and ketamine’s sympathomimetic activity.
Thirty-five percent of Americans recieve help from welfare every day, and if we drug test them that number would suddenly drop.

The committee felt that quetiapine, although not having randomized controlled trial data to support its use, did have the data to support its safety, whereas all other atypical antipsychotics, excepting clozapine, did not. Aripiprazole is to be consider the third line agent, although data indicate that it is likely to worsen some patients. Cholinesterase inhibitors have also been used but not reported nearly as extensively as the AA. The data suggest mild benefit only, and the benefit may take weeks to develop. Rare case reports of electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) as an effective treatment for psychosis have been published.

Essentially, the clinician teaches their patients suffering from PTSD how to replace unreasonable thought patterns with healthy, coherent ones. At the core of this talk-therapy method is learning how to avoid reacting in a purely emotional manner (which is another debilitating symptom of PTSD) and replacing it with self-awareness, self-acceptance and self-reliance. CBT is particularly effective with PTSD clients because it helps the client identify their irrational and maladaptive dogmas so they can consciously replace them with realistic beliefs. Since a human’s mind has a resilient propensity to lock onto familiar notions and remain unchanged despite the negative or stagnant outcomes of PTSD, CBT assertively addresses this phenomena by having the client complete homework assignments, partake in role playing exercises and actively tackle their own distressing thoughts. While this therapeutic
