Treatment for Trauma and PTSD
What is trauma?
Trauma occurs when you experience an overwhelming event where you were afraid
and felt you had no control
You may find it very difficult to get past this event,
playing it over and over in your mind
or you may try to block it from your memory
only to have it come up in nightmares
Traumatic events change people’s behavior and can lead to anxiety, depression, shame, and phobias.
Trauma can happen at any age, and adults who have had a traumatic childhood may have trouble trusting other people, have low self-worth, and have trouble identifying and expressing their emotions.
If you have had an overwhelming negative experience and you
· Fear something bad will happen
· Feel your emotions are out of control
· Feel numb or cut off from your feelings
· Are jittery and on edge
· Feel disconnected from your loved ones
· Feel immense shame and as if others are judging you
then you may be suffering from traumatic stress
