DEVELOPING RESILIENCE FROM TRAUMATIC ISSUES
Most of us maintain good mental health and positive well-being through the achievement and maintenance of safety, stability and security in everyday life. However, if trauma occurs it can impact your thoughts, behaviours and feelings. We can become very heightened to perceived threats that are still lingering as aftershock to the event that happened.
We can experience trauma when we have witnessed an event that we may not be able to process at the time. Some traumas can be more complex which is when we have been exposed to conditions of trauma over a period of time. Trauma can cause us to feel overwhelmed or shut down and unable cope. Trauma symptoms can appear in forms of psychological, emotional, and physical reactions.
Emotions and behaviours such as anger, anxiety, avoidance, preoccupation with situations or relationships, fear, numbness, nightmares, flashbacks, substance abuse, addictive behaviours, lack of concentration, insomnia, palpitations, headaches, migraines, tenseness, or pain may be the results of exposure to all types of trauma. As a result, individuals can experience emotional tension, and mental strain which can lead to exhaustion and feelings of unrest, irritability and frustration. Understanding and processing traumatic events can help us avoid higher risk or more severe and long-lasting mental health problems.
