The Aftermath of Trauma and Victim Counseling

  • A traumatic incident or accident can make it difficult to cope with strong emotions. In this way, psychological trauma bears a resemblance to emotional trauma. As a coping mechanism, victims may adopt different behaviours to avoid confronting the trauma. In some cases, however, victims may re-live and communicate the trauma subconsciously while in public or in private with family and friends.
  • Trauma in general is tough to  define clearly since everyone processes events differently. What one person may view as traumatic, another may find the situation to be a difficult one. The experience is unique to every individual. According to the Institute for Advanced Psychiatry, following the aftermath of trauma, the effects one experiences are included but not limited to the following:
  • Anxiety:
    Anxiety Content Tab: After a traumatic event, many individuals report high anxiety levels. Anxiety disorders often times can trap a person in a flight or fight mode that can prevent you from functioning normally.
  • Re-experiencing or flashbacks:
    Re-experiencing or flashback Content Tab: Even if your trauma is well in the past, you may experience flashbacks of the events  triggered by certain reminders. These flashbacks are more than just an unpleasant memory, as you re-experience the same emotions you felt at the time quite vividly. You may also find yourself struggling with ongoing nightmares.
  • Behavioral changes:
    Behavioral changes Content Tab: Many individuals attempt to forget about the past and control their thoughts and emotions through the use of substances such as drugs or alcohol, which can very easily lead to substance use disorders if left unchecked. On the other hand, some people turn to food to cope with unresolved issues, which can lead to weight issues or eating disorders. Moreover,  other individuals will turn to risky and dangerous behaviors, preferring the thrill of the moment instead of dealing  with their emotions and memories.
  • Health issues:
    Health issues Content Tab:  High levels of anxiety can lead to a variety of health issues, including widespread inflammation in your body, which can lead to other health issues such as cardiovascular disease or autoimmune disease.
  • Depression:

  • Cognitive function:
    When the brain is fixated on emotional trauma, cognitive issues can arise with one’s memory and ability to focus and concentrate for extended periods of time.  In extreme cases, people are unable to function at school or work because of their inability to focus on the task at hand.

Psychological Trauma and Traumatic Brain Injury

  • A Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) can result in varying degrees and intensity. Quite often TBI symptoms can result in symptoms similar to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and other forms of psychological trauma. In this regard an accurate diagnosis is required for effective treatment. This is key. One should visit a medical professional as soon as possible after your accident in order to receive the treatment you need.
