Prolonged Exposure Therapy segment excerpt from the Minneapolis VA Health Care “Excellence through Learning, Discovery, and Best Practice”. Prolonged Exposure Therapy, developed by Dr. Edna Foa, works by helping to approach trauma-related thoughts, feelings, and situations that have been avoided due to the distress they cause. Repeated exposure to these thoughts, feelings, and situations helps reduce the power of PTSD to cause distress.
