An Overview of Trauma and Its Effects

Understand Trauma and Addiction

Trauma can happen when someone experiences a stressful, threatening, or distressing event, leading to long-term effects on their mental and physical health. It can cause changes in the brain, leading to a constant “fight or flight” response. If left untreated, it can produce negative thoughts and other mental health problems such as PTSD.

Types of Trauma

There are three types of trauma: acute, chronic, and complex. Acute trauma is caused by a single event, while chronic trauma is the result of long-term exposure, such as abuse or domestic violence. Complex trauma occurs as a result of multiple intense traumas.

Symptoms of Trauma

Individuals who have experienced trauma may exhibit symptoms such as flashbacks, nightmares, insomnia, and irritability, among others. These symptoms can vary from person to person.

Trauma in Childhood

By the age of 16, a child may have experienced at least one traumatic event, which can lead to long-term health problems, learning difficulties, mental health issues, and involvement with the juvenile justice system.

Trauma and Substance Abuse

Individuals who have experienced trauma are more likely to abuse drugs and alcohol. Although drugs and alcohol may be used to cope with trauma symptoms, they do not aid in the healing process.

Language and Trauma

It is essential to be mindful of the language used when discussing trauma. Any form of trauma is still trauma. Some people who have experienced trauma may withdraw from social experiences and not discuss their struggles. Being aware of the language used can help prevent inadvertent invalidation of a person’s emotions and experiences.

Benefits of a Trauma Program

Empowering Recovery with Empathy and Compassion


Trauma therapy is a specialized treatment that can help those who have faced traumatic experiences. The therapy can aid in correcting altered brain functions caused by trauma, and provide several benefits to the survivors. The treatment focuses on teaching healthy coping mechanisms to manage the “fight-or-flight” response that often emerges from such events.

Validation is an essential component of trauma therapy. It is crucial to acknowledge the survivor’s experience, to ensure they feel heard and understood. The therapist prioritizes the survivor’s needs and provides a safe space to express themselves without fear of judgment.

Trauma survivors often experience feelings of shame and self-blame. Trauma therapy can help address these emotions and prevent them from leading to low self-esteem and self-worth.

The ultimate goal of trauma therapy is to promote healing and help the survivors regain trust in themselves and the world around them. The therapist establishes a trustworthy relationship with the survivor built on empathy, compassion, and patience. Recovery from trauma takes time, and the therapist supports the survivor throughout the process.

Understanding Trauma Therapy

A Comprehensive Guide to Trauma Therapy: Discover Your Options

If you’ve experienced trauma, it’s essential to seek out the right mental health professional to help you through the healing process. There are various therapies available, including Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TFCBT), Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EDMR). Each therapy has unique characteristics and benefits.

Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TFCBT)

TFCBT is a powerful and widely used therapy that can benefit individuals of all ages who have experienced trauma. It primarily focuses on identifying and addressing negative thoughts that are associated with the traumatic experience. By working closely with the patient, the therapist can develop healthy coping mechanisms and shift negative thoughts to positive ones.

Psychodynamic Psychotherapy

In psychodynamic psychotherapy, patients are encouraged to express their thoughts and trauma openly to their therapist. The therapy aims to uncover and address unconscious thoughts that may contribute to conflicts. By exploring and recognizing these unconscious thoughts, the patient can gain a better understanding of their trauma and work towards healing.

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EDMR)

EDMR is a unique therapy designed to help trauma survivors process their experiences more effectively. Studies have shown that it can be effective even before other therapy options. The therapy follows a two-part process. In the first part, the patient talks while the therapist provides an external stimulus like eye movements or hand tapping. In the second part, the patient focuses on an aspect of their story while following the therapist’s external stimuli. The goal of EDMR is to help patients recognize their strengths and shift their perspective towards a more positive outlook.
