Understand the Impact of Trauma

Trauma can be felt after a number of highly stressful events.
Some events can be:

  • Physical, emotional or verbal abuse
  • Assault or harassment
  • Diagnosis and treatment of a life-threatening medical condition; post-medical trauma
  • A natural disaster
  • A terrorist attack or war-like incident

Trauma can look and feel like this:

  • Being fearful
  • Feeling helpless
  • Being angry
  • Having nightmares
  • Feeling confused
  • Experiencing memory loss
  • Acting out in a compulsive manner
