Most people will experience trauma in their lifetime whether it’s a car accident, abuse or neglect, the sudden death of a loved one, a violent criminal act, exposure to the violence of war, or a natural disaster.
While many people can recover from trauma over time with the love and support of family and friends and bounce back with resiliency, others may discover effects of lasting trauma, which can cause a person to live with deep emotional pain, fear, confusion, or posttraumatic stress far after the event has passed.
In these circumstances, the support, guidance and assistance of a therapist is fundamental to healing from trauma.
According to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 5th Edition (DSM-5), the four common types of trauma symptoms are:
Avoiding specific locations, sights, situations, and sounds that serve as reminders of the event
Anxiety, depression, numbness, or guilt
Intrusive thoughts, nightmares or flashbacks
Anger, irritability and hypervigilance
Aggressive, reckless behavior, including self-harm
Negative Mood and Cognition Symptoms
Loss of interest in activities that were once considered enjoyable
Difficulty remembering details of the distressing event
Change in habits or behavior since the trauma
Research has proven psychotherapy to be the most effective form of treatment for trauma. Most commonly, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), Exposure therapy, and Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) are used in treating trauma.
If one or more of the above symptoms resonates with you, I invite you to contact me today for a short consultation.
