Acute Stress Response

Acute stress results when exposed to events of actual or threatened death, severe injury, or a threat to the physical integrity of self or others that involves intense fear or helplessness. Therapy consists of taking time to review and debrief the acute stress experience, explore emotional responses and implications for one’s own life, dealing with resulting fears, develop positive actions and habits, and progression towards returning to normal life and relationships.
