My sweet natured, playful dog was attacked by another dog on an off leash trail last week, how can I best help her regain her former confidence?

We meet many dogs on off leash trails. When this attack happened, she caved and shrieked in a way I have never heard before, and did not fight back, but escaped physically unharmed. How can I best help her return to a non-fearful baseline? She is suddenly (and understandably) very fearful of other dogs, but unfortunately that includes even the friendly playful ones she used to have the most fun with. Help!
