“Practitioners of narrative therapy believe that simply telling one’s story of a problem is a form of action toward change” (Beels, C. (2009)). “By exploring the impact of the problem, it is possible to identify what is truly important and valuable to a person in a broader context, beyond the problem” (Skovholt, T., & Ronnestad, M.

I believe it is important to get to the root of the problem and deal directly with it. In the case of PTSD, the root is the trauma experienced. Once we learn how to deal with our feelings about the traumatic event, we can move forward in learning how to control the thoughts and feelings that can cause us stress relating to the event.

It is important that everyone looks out for changes in a person's or a group's behaviour. However, in many cases the changes may only be noticeable to the person subject to the stress and so it is also important to look at how you are feeling and try to identify any potential issues you may have as early as possible and take positive action to address them; this may be raising the matter with a Team Leader, talking to occupational health or your own GP.
