Trauma Therapists in Illinois
Trauma is generally considered to be a psychological injury that occurs in reaction to an intensely distressing experience. These experiences can range from upsetting events, such as an accident or the loss of a loved one, to more extreme events, such as rape, war, or a natural disaster. Following such an adverse event, it’s normal and natural to experience a short period of psychological distress. Symptoms present differently from person-to-person but often include feelings of fear, anxiety, sadness, anger, and guilt; sleep and appetite problems are also common. A majority of people find that these symptoms settle down in the days and weeks following the trauma and are then able to move on.
