What is Trauma Treatment?
Trauma consists of the events, experiences, and effects that create overwhelm in the body and emotions. Trauma therapy is a type of mental health treatment that can help people who have experienced traumatic events. Traumatic events can include things (like car accidents, natural disasters, sexual assault, and combat), experiences (such as abuse, emotional or physical neglect, and relationship losses), and effects (difficulty trusting others, poor self-worth, and challenges connecting to others). Trauma can have a profound impact on a person’s life, leading to symptoms such as anxiety, depression, flashbacks, nightmares, and relationship instability.
