Psychological trauma includes observing or experiencing a life threatening event and being violated by people on whom you depend for your well being.
After a traumatic event some people become anxious, depressed and others have difficulty managing their daily responsibilities.
While most people are distressed for a period of time it may be weeks or months, they eventually resume their normal responsibilities and adapt. Someone who continues to be significantly affected by a traumatic event months or years later may have Post Traumatic Stress Disorder - PTSD.
Often, after a traumatic event people begin to avoid triggers that remind them of the event in attempting to cope with the trauma. This may be adaptive initially, yet may lead to a pattern of symptoms that interferes with living life. Other types of symptoms include re-experiencing the trauma in the form of nightmares or flashbacks – its a kind of mental replay of the trauma, numbing of emotions and being on high alert for danger. This might result in difficulty with sleep or concentration.
Affect on Future Medical Management
A history of psychological trauma can affect a patient's experience in a medical setting. If a patient generally believes they are helpless to impact their life circumstances, this may interfere with following through with medical treatment recommendations. Present experiences such as medical procedures, evaluations, and appointments with doctors can re-trigger early experiences of distress. Since with trauma, "the past is the present," one can react in the present medical situation as if it is what was happening in the past.
Homeopathy & Psychological Management
A number of different kinds of counselling as well as symptomatic Homeopathy medications can be effective in treating PTSD.
