Experiencing the pains of trauma can be the most difficult period a person needs to endure. It involves the mental, psychological, emotional, physical, and spiritual aspect of a person. It involves the person’s entire being actually. Trauma can eat away at a person if he doesn’t ask for help and get treated.
What are the different sources of trauma?
Trauma provides a negative impact on a man’s mental stability. A person can be traumatized when one experience a lingering shock, extreme stress and depression, and overwhelming pain. Although everyone may have experienced different kinds of major downfalls and tribulations, not everyone receives and responds to the situation in a similar manner. Some are unable to cope properly with a particular incident. This is where trauma comes in.
When a person feels unstable or he experiences a threat to his life, he can become traumatized by the event. There are different kinds of trauma and each requires different approaches to address the situation.
The most common sources of trauma are:
- Re-traumatization. This is when a person who have been rehabilitated or fostered, experienced a sudden removal from his foster placement or rehabilitation program. Or maybe, the rehab center approached a wrong kind of treatment that adds trauma to the victim. This approach may involve seclusion.
Signs and symptoms of a person suffering from a traumatic event
Trauma is a deep-rooted kind of mental pain. It is enduring and oftentimes leads a person to commit suicide just to escape from extreme fear and suffering. A person who is traumatized can be virtually inconspicuous even to his closest relatives. At first, there may not be initial signs that show that the person is suffering from trauma. But signs could be apparent days or months after the event.
Some emotional signs and symptoms you need to be aware of are the following:
- Extreme sadness, anxiety, and depression
- Poor concentration
