Defining Trauma Recovery
Trauma can be difficult to define because reactions to events are unique to each person who experiences them—what is traumatic to one individual may not be to another and vice versa. Reactions may include intrusive recurring thoughts of the event or events, poor quality of sleep affected by disturbing dreams or nightmares, and physically reacting to new events as if re-experiencing the trauma.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) has been proven to help cope with the effects that we humans experience as a result of trauma. Another form of treatment for trauma recovery is called Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy. EMDR is a method of psychotherapy that has been extensively researched and proven effective for treatment of trauma, including PTSD. For more information, go to www.emdria.org.
