Therapy for Trauma
Many people experience some traumatic event in their lifetime whether due to an unexpected stressful event, the loss of a loved one, or experiences of abuse or harm.
Some people recover from trauma over time with the love and support of family and friends and bounce back. Others may discover the effects of lasting trauma, which can cause a person to live with deep emotional pain, fear, confusion, or other symptoms of posttraumatic stress far after the event has passed.
- 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
- Sleep disturbances
- 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
