Secure, patient professional help to deal with recent trauma or past trauma events that are being triggered and causing distress.
A person who has had a traumatic experience and hasn’t received professional help can develop severe psychological emotional and behavioural symptoms.
Trauma symptoms can be:
- Physiological: trembling, nausea, diarrhoea, rapid breathing
- Emotional: anger guilt, sadness, numbness, feeling overwhelmed
- Behavioural: changes to usual behaviour, sleep difficulties, withdrawing into oneself, restlessness
- Cognitive: confused thinking, memory difficulties, lowered concentration.
A traumatic event can be very sudden and unexpected, but it can also be prolonged over weeks and months, even years. Just remembering a traumatic event can set off a strong stress response.
Trauma experiences may include car accidents, a death/suicide, gruesome sights, assaults, threats, workplace pressures, domestic violence, and other significant events.
