3 Common Types of Trauma and How Working with a Trauma Therapist Can Help You Heal

Trauma is defined as an emotional response to a deeply distressing or disturbing event. We all process our trauma differently, and the key to healing is understanding how to work through it. Working with a trauma therapist can help you understand the root of your trauma and how to move forward in a healthy way. Let’s take a look at three common types of trauma and how working with a trauma therapist can help you heal.

Childhood Abuse and Neglect

Childhood abuse or neglect often leads to long-term psychological issues that can affect us for the rest of our lives. A trauma therapist can help you process these experiences in order to move past them and create healthier relationships moving forward. They will be able to provide guidance, support, and compassion as you learn to cope with any unresolved emotions from your childhood.

Traumatic Accidents

Accidents that cause physical or emotional injuries are considered traumatic events. Whether it’s an automobile accident, workplace incident, or even a natural disaster - these events can leave lasting emotional repercussions on those involved. A trauma therapist can help you work through difficult emotions associated with such accidents by providing strategies for managing stress, understanding triggers, and developing coping skills for future incidents.

Death of a Loved One

The death of a loved one is one of the most traumatic experiences we can go through in life. Grief counseling helps us navigate our feelings of sadness, guilt, anger, confusion, loneliness, etc., while also helping us find ways to manage our grief so that we don’t become overwhelmed by it. A qualified trauma therapist will be able to offer helpful advice and compassionate support as you journey through this difficult time in your life.
