Short & Long-term Trauma

After a traumatic event, or series of traumatic events, it's normal to feel different. After a traumatic event, many people start to feel better within a few weeks. If, however, your symptoms last longer, or you have experienced a prolonged series of traumatic events, you may benefit from seeing a mental health professional who can help you with trauma-focused therapy.

 

Over 50% of people experience at least one trauma in their lives. Trauma can include a wide range of situations, ranging from serious injury, sexual violence, and life-threatening events, to chronic abuse and neglect, being bullied, labor and giving birth, and chronic illness.

 

Trauma therapy can help you cope with trauma, whether it’s caused by a one-time event, or an ongoing or long-lasting situation. It’s important to note that trauma can include any event or experience that causes emotional or psychological harm.

Trauma therapy can help address:

  • Abuse

  • Abandonment

  • Accidents

  • Birth, labor, & delivery

  • Bullying 

  • Crime

  • Death of a loved one

  • Divorce 

  • Domestic abuse or violence

  • Natural disasters

  • Near death experiences

  • Neglect
