Trauma refers to an emotional response to a distressing or disturbing event that overwhelms an individual's ability to cope.

These events can be singular, such as a car accident, natural disaster, or physical assault, or they can be ongoing, such as abuse, neglect, or exposure to violence. Trauma can have a profound impact on a person's psychological, emotional, and physical well-being, often leading to a range of symptoms and difficulties in functioning.

There are a number of possible reactions to traumatic experience including:

Intrusive Thoughts

such as flashbacks and nightmares;

of people, places or situations that are reminders of the event;

such as feeling on edge or easily startled;

which means having difficulty managing emotions, mood swings, or outbursts of anger or irritability;

including headaches, stomachaches, muscle tension, or other physical complaints without a clear medical cause.

Effective treatment for trauma typically involves a combination of therapeutic approaches tailored to the individual's needs.
