Trauma is a severe, emotionally distressing response to an event or series of events. Events generally categorized as traumatic include accidents, natural disasters, abuse, terminal illness, and death. Trauma can result in mental health concerns, such as mood disorders, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, and Acute Stress Disorder. People with significant trauma also have an increased likelihood of other health problems, including those with physical health.
Available Treatment Options
Treatment for trauma includes types of therapy like Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Prolonged Exposure, and Psychodynamic Therapy. Therapists and counselors work with individuals to determine what kind of therapy to address their thoughts, emotions, and behaviors related to trauma.
