Prolonged Exposure Therapy was first introduced to Georgia in 2016 with the help of American psychologists Joel Foster, David Tubman.

The above-mentioned method is a variation of the cognitive-behavioral method, which was specially created to help treat post-traumatic stress disorder.

During the therapy the patient experiences the traumatic event again, which facilitates gradual decrease of negative evasive attitude to the traumatic fact through weakening negative emotions and thus lessening the symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder.
