Trauma recovery is a complex healing process that helps the individual, who was traumatized, break the cycle of distressing feelings stop troubling events from replaying over in your mind. Without help a condition called PTSD or post traumatic stress disorder can develop. Trauma, like depression, is a dis-connective disorder that can be debilitating. While the individual desires the solitude of isolation, it is that very isolation and solitude that perpetuates the disorder.
Abuse is “any recent act or failure to act on the part of the caretaker, that results in death, serious physical or emotional harm, sexual abuse, or exploitation, or a failure to act which presents an imminent risk of serious harm.”
EMDR stands for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. It is a specialized therapy developed by Francine Shapiro, Ph.D. This therapy is used to overcome the effects of traumatic or upsetting experiences.
Grief is a person’s internal experience, thoughts and feelings related to the experience of losing someone or something that was valued. It consists of emotional, psychological, and physical symptoms. As with a physical injury, the recovery and healing process can take time. This period cannot be rushed and varies from individual to individual. Everyone is different. There’s no right or wrong way to grieve and there’s no telling how long it may take.
Sexual abuse can be defined as any type of sexual contact or behavior that occurs without the explicit consent of the recipient of the unwanted sexual activity. Falling under the definition of sexual abuse is sexual activity such as forced sexual intercourse, sodomy, child molestation, incest, fondling, and attempted rape. Sexual abuse perpetrators can be people that you know. They could even be part of your family or an acquaintance.
If you have suffered trauma, without help this can create a condition called PTSD or post traumatic stress disorder.
Trauma recovery is a complex and often lengthy process that helps the individual who was traumatized break the cycle of distressing feelings and troubling thoughts that replay over and over again.
