Trauma is a condition that affects a person mentally, physically, and emotionally. In the most basic terms, it’s the result of experiencing or witnessing a dangerous event or situation that causes intense fear, horror, or helplessness. Trauma can happen in many situations – on the job, in your personal life or even during childhood – but it doesn’t have to be an event that literally scared you witless to qualify as traumatic. Even if you didn’t feel frightened at the time (maybe because you didn’t fully comprehend what was happening), witnessing something so frightening that your normal coping mechanisms don’t work can still cause lasting issues.
What is Trauma?
Trauma is a word that is used to describe an event that is disturbing and shocking. This can be caused by a single event or by ongoing stress, such as when you are in an abusive relationship.
Traumatic events may include natural disasters (such as earthquakes) or man-made ones (such as car accidents), physical violence (such as being robbed), sexual assault, bullying, terrorism, and torture.
What are the signs of Trauma?
Trauma can be caused by a variety of factors, including:
- A single event, such as an accident or violent assault.
- Ongoing abuse or neglect, may start at a young age and continue into adulthood.
- The death of a loved one (e.g., the death of a parent or sibling).
Trauma can also be caused by learning about the traumatic experiences of others (e.g., learning about child abuse or natural disasters).
Trauma and PTSD
PTSD is a serious mental health condition that can develop after you have experienced or witnessed a shocking, scary, or dangerous event. People with PTSD often relive the traumatic experience through nightmares and flashbacks, have difficulty sleeping, and feel detached or estranged.
