Everyone experiences moments, over the course of their lives, that leave them with lasting memories. There are some individuals, however, who experiences situations and circumstances that change their lives forever. Experiencing profound trauma can have a devastating effect on a person, and the results of traumatic experiences can be lasting. Following these emotionally scarring events, coping mechanisms may include certain behaviors that are unhealthy, and can have adverse outcomes.
What Are the Causes of Trauma?
When someone had endured an event or circumstances which leave them fearful, anxious, or unable to effectively manage their emotions, these symptoms can be debilitating. At this point, the person has suffered a trauma which requires professional help and intervention. Those events may include:
Domestic violence (including emotional, verbal, physical, or sexual abuse)
Extreme fear stimulated by threats of injury and/or assault to oneself or a loved one
Community violence (e.g. shootings, muggings, burglaries, physical assaults, rape, bullying)
Serious injury to or illness of oneself or a loved one
Natural disasters such as an earthquake, hurricane, flood or fire
Witnessing or being involved in a car accident
Sudden unexpected death of someone close to you
Trauma Counseling & Therapy
Many people experience trauma, yet not everyone has posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Some people, on the other hand, experience PTSD every day of their lives after one of these events. Experiencing profound trauma can have a devastating effect on a person, and the results of traumatic experiences can be lasting. Following these emotionally scarring events, coping mechanisms may include certain behaviors which are unhealthy, and can have adverse outcomes. Many people who have experienced trauma may turn to alcohol, drugs, or other behaviors to cope.
