Identifying and describing the numerous types of interventions to treat posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) can be a daunting task, especially with the numerous therapeutic models and techniques with published case study support. This article will explore the physiology and neurobiology of PTSD. Additionally, it will discuss some of the most common categories of interventions and examples of each (e.g., prolonged exposure therapy, cognitive processing therapy, emotional freedom techniques, and reprocessing therapy). Data on d-cycloserine, nabotulinumtoxin A, and methylenedioxymethamphetamine will also be elucidated.
