Psychological trauma can lead to long-term effects and significantly impact a person’s ability to live a healthy and full life. For those who have experienced trauma, trauma counseling is strongly recommended. At the office of Life Insight, our trauma counselors in Hinsdale, provide comprehensive services for trauma therapy. If you have experienced a trauma, don’t hesitate to contact one of our therapists for the support you need.
Psychological trauma is a type of psychological response to a traumatic, highly stressful event. As such, there are many different sources of trauma, and each person’s response to trauma may look entirely unique. With that in mind, some of the most common sources of trauma include:
In addition to the above sources of trauma, a person may also suffer psychological trauma as the result of a divorce or parents going through a divorce, from bullying, and from family violence, amongst other things.
Trauma can manifest itself in different ways, including the psychological disorder post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Initial and long-term effects of trauma might include:
The above list is not inclusive; trauma victims may experience other side effects, both physical and psychological, not listed above.
Therapy is one of the best and most effective types of treatment for trauma, and may be used alone or in conjunction with the use of other treatment methods, such as prescription medications, yoga or other exercise, etc. Cognitive behavioral therapy, or CBT, is one of the most common types of therapy used to treat trauma. This type of therapy focuses on helping individuals change their current thought patterns and form a new perspective in order to better understand and control their emotions and behaviors.
Trauma counseling can be effective, but it also requires effort. For some individuals, being asked to relive the traumatic event can be painful and extremely difficult; long-term, however, working through trauma can have positive effects and result in an individual feeling more empowered and in control of their thoughts and emotions.
