What is Trauma?
Many of us will experience trauma at some point in our lives. An experience which is scary, overwhelming or out of our control. Common traumas include being a victim of physical or sexual assault, accidents, experiencing violence during wartime and natural disasters. Survivors of trauma might feel shocked, scared, guilty, ashamed, angry or vulnerable. Most people are able to get over these events on their own and without professional help. However a significant proportion of people the effects last for longer. Trauma tends to be harder to recover from it if it is repeated, or if it happens in childhood.
What is Post Traumatic Stress Disorder?
PTSD can develop after trauma and has four main groups of symptoms:
• Re-experiencing memories or feelings from the trauma
• A heightened sense of vigilance or threat
• Changes in beliefs about yourself, the world, other people or your future
• Avoidance of reminders
