Trauma Q & A

What are some symptoms of trauma?

Initial reactions to trauma and symptoms can include: 

  • Exhaustion 
  • Confusion
  • Sadness
  • Agitation
  • Anxiety
  • Dissociation
  • Numbness
  • Physical arousal
  • Blunted affect

Delayed responses and symptoms of trauma can include:

  • Persistent fatigue
  • Sleep disorders
  • Nightmares
  • Fear of recurrence
  • Anxiety focused on flashbacks
  • Depression

Also, the person might avoid emotions, sensations, or activities that are associated with the trauma, even remotely.

Most responses are to be expected in that they affect most survivors and are socially acceptable, psychologically compelling, and self-limited.

Trauma can affect a person’s beliefs about the future through loss of hope, limited expectations about life, fear that life will end abruptly or early, or anticipation that everyday life events won’t occur, such as access to education, good opportunities for work, or the ability to have a significant and committed relationship.

What are the effects of trauma?

Following major disasters, authorities often provide counseling services to survivors because they know how vital it is for people to talk about their experiences.

Some people respond calmly to trauma, focusing on helping others first and then experiencing the effects later.

Over time, the horror of your trauma starts fading as your mind processes the experience. Eventually, the memory moves from the forefront of your thoughts so you can resume your everyday life.

What are some signs you can benefit from psychotherapy?

The signs that you could benefit from psychotherapy and other forms of therapy include:

  • Past trauma
  • Substance use and addiction
