Role of Occupational Therapy in PTSD

Occupational therapy interventions focus on functional outcomes that are meaningful to each individual. Some
examples of interventions include:
• Providing individual sessions focusing on stabilizing symptoms and learning new coping strategies (e.g.,
sensory-supportive interventions).
• Training clients and caregivers in adaptive or modified self-care strategies, so as not to inadvertently trigger
hypersensitivity patterns, dissociation, flooding, or flashbacks.
• Assisting individuals to increase their ability to participate in meaningful roles and activities by helping
them plan and initiate the use of a daily routine (schedule), considering the amount and type of supports
necessary for follow through.
• Assisting clients and caregivers in determining the needs and requirements for home modifications for
individuals with PTSD and physical impairment(s).
• Providing individual or group sessions on relapse prevention to assist individuals in their recovery process.
