PTSD and Trauma
Traumatic experiences may be especially disabling but you can successfully overcome them. These articles can help you identify, understand, and get help when trauma has disrupted your life.
The emotional aftermath of traumatic events can be every bit as devastating as any physical damage. Whether trauma stems from a personal tragedy, a natural disaster, or other overwhelming life experiences, it can shatter our sense of security, making us feel vulnerable, helpless, and even numb.
There is no right or wrong way to feel after traumatic events. But there are many strategies that can help you work through feelings of pain, fear, and grief and regain your emotional equilibrium. Whether the traumatic event happened years ago or yesterday, you can heal and move on.
