The truth about Trauma

What is trauma?

Trauma encompasses any severely distressing experience for an individual. The traumatic experience could be an act of violence toward the individual, someone they know, or a stranger. It could be a natural disaster that comes suddenly and transforms the individual’s life. It could be a freak accident. 

No matter how or why the traumatic experience occurred, if the memory of it affects you for more than a couple of weeks, it’s time to talk to the team at In Touch Counseling Services. Their team believes you should have the care and tools you need to ensure your trauma doesn’t negatively shape your life. 

How does trauma affect people?

Trauma causes an emotional disturbance that can last long-term, infringing upon a person’s well-being. After trauma, many people experience:

  • Anger
  • Sadness
  • Shame
  • Anxiety
  • Sleep problems
  • Stress
  • Headaches
  • Nausea
  • Strained relationships

*Left untreated, these symptoms can develop into post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), a mental health condition. PTSD often affects people by creating recurrent, unwelcome flashbacks to the traumatic incident, anxiety, and avoidance of anything that makes the person recall the trauma. 

Fortunately, the effects of trauma are treatable. The team at In Touch Counseling & Wellness offers specialized care for people who have survived a traumatic incident.
