Find a way forward following significant trauma.
Trauma disorder, otherwise known as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), is a mental health condition that can develop in individuals who have experienced or witnessed a traumatic event or a series of traumatic events. The characteristics of trauma disorder include a range of disruptive and distressing symptoms that can persist long after the initial traumatic event. These symptoms can greatly affect a person’s daily life, emotional well-being, and ability to function.
If you live with trauma disorder, you may reexperience intrusive and distressing memories, nightmares, or flashbacks, making it feel like you continually relive the trauma. You may also go to great lengths to avoid any reminders of the trauma, including places, people, thoughts, or feelings associated with it. Additionally, you may experience persistent negative thoughts about yourself and others, distorted beliefs about the world, and even an inability to experience positive emotions.
