COPING WITH TRAUMA
Whether held at gunpoint, witness to death or destruction, or the survivor of personal trauma - when a human being is the victim of or exposed to violent events, there is always a psychological reaction. For functioning people, this reaction can be frightening.
Trauma is psychological injury. Our sense of reality, psychological integrity, and security is torn, slashed, or obliterated. We will heal, but it takes time and awareness of the process involved.
Often called "post-traumatic stress," the specific symptoms that follow trauma are described - intrusive thoughts and images, anxiety, paranoia, easy startle, loss of appetite and sexual interest, sleep problems, nightmares, emotional numbing and withdrawal, irritability, a sense of loss of control, obsessive thoughts and fears, and panicky avoidance of people and places associated with the trauma.
Symptoms may occur to various degrees, appear alone or in combination, and often clear up spontaneously. When a "reaction" becomes a "disorder," and treatment is necessary are discussed.
