Trauma is an emotional response to a terrible event. What is considered a terrible even can be different for everyone. However, some common things that lead to trauma include: assault or personal violence, accident, robbery, natural disaster, death of close relative or friend, etc. Even if after these events there is no physical sign of injury, the person may be very injured emotionally. People experience emotions after trauma in a lot of ways including:
Intense or unpredictable feelings Changes to thoughts and behavior patterns Sensitivity to environmental factors Strained interpersonal relationships Stress-related physical symptoms
These symptoms can be present directly following the event or can even come up days, weeks, months or even years afterward. If the event is causing an emotional response that is affecting your daily life, it is never too late to address.
