2000). In sum, the examples of the comorbid diagnoses used here lend further support to the model of experiential avoidance. Experiential Avoidance and Control It is not unusual that traumatized individuals would want to avoid negative internal experience. Not only is it uncomfortable, but in fact, much of experiential avoidance is learned, and clients are taught that the thing to do is rid themselves of negative emotion and negative thought content. They are taught that they should be in control of their personal emotional and mind states.

If we review the avoidance symptoms of PTSD, you can easily see how the avoidance strategies and attempts to escape private experience point directly to the role that experiential avoidance (the avoidance of internal or private experiences, such as emotions, thoughts, bodily sensations, and memories that remind the person of the trauma) plays as a key mechanism in the development and maintenance of PTSD. However, PTSD is not only about avoidance of internal experiences, it is also about the avoidance of places or things that may remind a person of the trauma and that may cue the internal experiences.

And when these things happen, things change. Sometimes, everything changes. Things are mixed up—they don’t fit. This is part of what is hard about trauma, but it is also what is potentially empowering about such painful experiences.
