What Is Trauma?
The word trauma refers to an emotional response to a disturbing event, such as a natural disaster or an accident. Immediately following the event, many people will experience shock and denial. However, as time goes on, if the individual doesn’t process the event in a healthy way, they may experience symptoms such as:
- Unpredictable emotions
- Physical symptoms, such as nausea or headaches
- Strained relationships
- Reduced cognitive functions
These symptoms are relatively normal, but they can prevent many people from moving forward in their lives. With the help of trauma therapy, you can find a constructive way of understanding your emotions and processing them in a healthy way. You can then begin to move forward in your life without the trauma holding you back anymore.
