“How many people after the sudden death of a child have symptoms of post-traumatic stress (PTSD)? How many develop PTSD?"
“How do you know when it is better to avoid something that is emotionally painful or push through it?”
“What is the difference between EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) therapy and DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy)?”
“How do I know when I need professional help?”
These are questions the SUDC Foundation’s support staff often fields from people who have lost a loved one to SUDC. But they are also important topics for anyone coping with loss or other trauma.
The SUDC Foundation is proud to present this Q&A webinar with Natalia Garcia, M.S. Natalia is an SUDC parent who also specializes in both Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and exposure-based therapy for PTSD in her clinical psychology doctorate program at the University of Washington.
This webinar is the culmination of the SUDC Foundation’s inaugural Summer Podcast Club which spotlights episodes of the podcast “To Hell and Back” by Dr. Charles Swenson featuring Natalia.
