Trauma-

A Fear Based Condition

 

 

 

Physiological Trauma is a Psychological or emotional injury caused by a deeply disturbing experience or experiences. In severe cases trauma can cause severe and  lasting symptoms that can be life-disabling. The most commonly know trauma is Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) originally associated with the victims of war and first diagnosed post Vietnam. However Trauma can be caused by anything that shocks the senses and not all traumas will result in PTSD: the area is a complex one.

The majority of trauma's are minor. We may be initially traumatised by witnessing a road accident or hearing of the death of a loved one and in most cases the affects will reduce and disappear within a few days but for some they will experience a trauma that is so severe it will effect their day to day quality of life and may feel unmanageable. Abuse; physical, sexual, and spiritual are the areas which we will touch on and can be found in the navigation index.
