Trauma

Many people have traumatic experiences that can have a lasting impact, such as motor vehicle accidents, physical or sexual assault, war, natural disasters, and childhood abuse.

 

Common reactions to traumatic experiences include:

  • Nightmares

  • Flashbacks

  • Feeling unsafe

  • Difficulty sleeping

  • Feeling “on guard” or “superalert”

  • Problems concentrating

 

While these are normal reactions, it is not normal for the symptoms to persist. There are treatments that are available to help.
