What is Trauma?

Emotional trauma is a distressing or disturbing experience that overwhelms our coping ability.  This can lead to intense feelings of fear, helplessness, or horror.

Trauma can impact our emotional, psychological, and social well-being and affect our relationships, self-esteem, and sense of safety.

What Trauma may be for one person may be nothing to another. However, trauma becomes encoded into your memories and your body when it becomes problematic.   



How Trauma Impacts You

Trauma affects everyone differently. Some people may display symptoms of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), but many more individuals will be more resilient  

The impact of Trauma can be subtle, insidious, or outright destructive. How an event affects an individual depends on many factors, including your personality, beliefs and level of resilience.  In addition, your response to Trauma has a lot to do with the type of event itself.   


The Health implications of Trauma

Trauma can have a range of health impacts, both physical and mental.

These can include chronic pain, fatigue, sleep disturbances, anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), substance abuse, and other mental health disorders.

Trauma can also increase the risk of developing chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and autoimmune disorders.


Processing and resolving Trauma

There have been a number of studies examining the effectiveness of Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) for treating trauma in veterans in USA.

One study found that EFT led to significant reductions in symptoms of PTSD and anxiety among veterans. Another study showed that EFT improved emotional regulation, interpersonal relationships, and overall well-being in veterans with PTSD.

Additionally, EFT effectively addresses other symptoms commonly experienced by people, such as depression, anger, and sleep disturbances.

Overall, the evidence suggests that EFT may be useful for addressing the complex emotional and psychological needs of people dealing with trauma.
