“It’s not whether you get knocked down, it’s whether you get up,” legendary football coach Vince Lombardi once said. When you think about it, Coach Lombardi was really talking about coping skills and resilience. Trauma can knock you down; yet there are now online tools to help you develop valuable coping and problem-solving skills following trauma.

With the release of PTSD Coach Online, you can now go to your desktop or laptop computer anytime to work on skills that can be helpful following trauma. You can use its tools in the privacy and comfort of your own home—or anywhere with Internet access. These are the same type of skills you learn in professional therapy.

PTSD Coach Online extends the reach of the PTSD Coach mobile app’s groundbreaking symptom management tools to those who do not have access to smartphones. The PTSD Coach mobile app has already been downloaded more than 100,000 times in 74 countries around the world.

PTSD Coach Online is a free, online suite of tools designed to help people cope with sleep problems, trauma reminders, anxiety and other problems that can develop after trauma. It includes versions of many of the tools that are found in the PTSD Coach mobile app, plus more. One of its unique features is the inclusion of videos from coaches who provide video introductions and help throughout each tool.
