What Is Trauma? What Does Trauma Feel Like?

Traumatic events are disturbing and/or distressing events; examples include violence, emotional or mental abuse, the loss of a loved one, bullying, combat, natural disasters, and car accidents. Often, they have both psychological and physical impacts on an individual.

The Fifth Edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders delves into the symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), which one might develop after experiencing a traumatic event. These symptoms include:

  • Troubling memories of the traumatic event
  • Distressing flashbacks
  • Difficulty staying or even falling asleep
  • Decreased interest in one’s day to day
  • Detachment from an individual’s relationships
  • Lack of fulfillment, happiness, and/or success
  • Reckless or rebellious behavior
  • Psychological distress resulting from triggers

Are these symptoms prevalent in your life? Have you developed any of the above post-trauma? Please consider contacting Thriveworks Tampa Counseling. It’s important you speak with a professional about what you have experienced and what you are going through currently, so that they can help you manage your symptoms of PTSD and confront your traumatic past.

Does Trauma Therapy Work? How?

Trauma therapy differs from person to person, because the therapist plans their approach to treatment around the individual. They will first work to understand what the individual has experienced, what symptoms they are exhibiting, as well as any goals they might have for themselves in treatment. Then, they will come up with the best plan for therapy. That said, trauma therapy can help a person to:

  1. Confront and make peace with their traumatic past
  2. Reduce or better manage PTSD symptoms
  3. Rebuild any lost confidence
  4. Move forward with revitalized strength, happiness, and determination

Remember: your experience in therapy will be uniquely designed for you, based on your needs and goals. If you are a victim of trauma, consider reaching out to Thriveworks Tampa Counseling. Our trauma therapists can help you heal from your trauma and live a happy, successful life again.
