I have mentioned this foundation in other pieces, but I thought it important to mention them once more. The CPTSD Foundation was the brainchild of Athena Moberg, a wonderful person who has dedicated her life, money, and time to help survivors affected by Complex Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.
The foundation offers several programs that help survivors learn techniques for limiting the impact their past has on their present
Below, please find a great description of the services offered by CPTSD Foundation.
A General Description of the CPTSD Foundation
The CPTSD Foundation provides a tertiary (an added level) means of support; adjunctive care (another treatment in conjunction with professional care NOT a substitute for it.)
They provide trauma-informed peer support, which supplements individual therapy.
Each of our members should be engaged in individual therapy and medically stable.
Nothing on this website or any associated CPTSD Foundation websites is a replacement for or supersedes the direction of your medical or mental health provider.
The Services Offered by the CPTSD Foundation
Healing Book Club ~ $5.00
The Healing Book Club meets every Saturday at 4pm eastern. In the meetings, members discuss trauma-related healing material.
Weekly YouTube Q & A
Each week founder Athena Moberg answers questions live on topics related to complex trauma recovery. These weekly interactions allow a safe and validating place for people who are trauma survivors and their families to be heard. The goal of the Q & A is to encourage those on the healing path from around the world by allowing people to share their experiences through a chatbox.
The Daily Recovery Support Calls
These daily calls allow both those living with complex traumatic-stress disorder and clinicians to ask questions and share insights. The calls allow for anyone to offer and receive support with the group.
Each call deals with a different aspect of post-traumatic stress disorder such as its causes, treatments, and their myriad causes.
They also give practitioners, coaches, and advocates who contact Athena Moberg the opportunity to guest host these important calls.
Last, but certainly not least, the foundation has a blog on their site that helps to fill in the gaps of knowledge and experiences vs. flopping around trying to understand what is going on in the lives of survivors.
The blog, mainly written by Shirley J. Davis, me, has thus far covered many, many important topics to help you heal.
I ask that you go and check out the CPTSD foundation’s site. You’ll be glad you did.
