Trauma is an emotional response to a terrible event. Examples of a terrible event could include: an accident, rape, natural disaster, abuse etc. Long term reactions to a traumatic experience include unpredictable emotions, flashbacks, strained relationships, and even physical symptoms (headaches, or nausea).
While these emotional and physical feelings are normal, some individuals have difficulties when it comes to knowing how to move forward and integrate “what it means to be me” following a traumatic event. People can have serious trauma reactions to humiliation, bullying, feeling unimportant, and shame responses to name a few.
