What is a PTSD Discrimination Worksheet?
Trauma is inevitable; even if you survive it, you carry some part of it with you. In PTSD, you feel anxious and scared whenever you are reminded of the trauma. It can be in the form of intrusive rumination, flashbacks, or images of that stressful event. The trauma haunts you, and you keep re-living the involuntary recollection of your trauma memories.
Stimulus discrimination can be categorized as a ‘brain training’ exercise with the rationale that your mind is attending to stimuli associated with the trauma and incorrectly interpreting them as signs of danger in the here-and-now.
