TRAUMA/POST TRAUMATIC STRESS DISORDER
Individuals who experience, witness, or hear about an extremely stressful situation may also undergo psychological trauma associated with the some of the following:
- Intense emotions
- Feeling like you are constantly in danger
- Fearing for your safety or the safety of others
- Recurring and unwanted thoughts or memories
- Difficulties trusting other people
- Seeing the world as a dangerous or threatening place
- Difficulties sleeping
- Difficulties concentrating
- Feeling like you are back in the stressful situation as if it is really happening again
Some people experience a traumatic event once in their lifetime (e.g., being in a severe car crash), others multiple times (e.g., in multiple military tours), and some on a constant basis, as with those who endure domestic or child abuse. Whether you’ve experienced a traumatic event many years ago, recently, or are currently in this situation, many strategies are available to help you feel safe again.
