What is PTSD, and how does it differ from trauma?

PTSD, or Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, is a mental health condition that can develop after experiencing or witnessing a traumatic event. Trauma, on the other hand, refers to the emotional response to a distressing or disturbing event that overwhelms an individual's ability to cope. While PTSD is a specific diagnosis characterized by symptoms such as flashbacks, nightmares, and hypervigilance, trauma can encompass a broader range of emotional and psychological responses to adverse experiences. These may include feelings of fear, helplessness, or dissociation, as well as changes in beliefs, behaviors, and interpersonal relationships. Both PTSD and trauma can profoundly impact a person's mental, emotional, and physical well-being and therapy can offer a path to healing and recovery.

What types of trauma can be addressed in therapy?

Therapy can address various types of trauma, including but not limited to:

  • Physical or sexual abuse

  • Domestic violence

  • Combat or military-related trauma

  • Natural disasters

  • Accidents or injuries

  • Loss of a loved one

  • Witnessing violence or traumatic events

How can therapy help? 

Therapy helps by providing a safe space to process trauma, reduce distressing symptoms, and develop coping strategies. With approaches like acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) and prolonged exposure (PE), therapy empowers individuals to enhance awareness, regulate emotions, challenge avoidance, shift cognitive patterns, and foster meaningful behavior change. If you're struggling with PTSD or trauma, therapy can offer invaluable support on your journey to healing and growth.

What can I expect during PTSD and trauma therapy sessions?

During PTSD and trauma therapy sessions, you can expect a compassionate and trauma-informed approach tailored to your unique experiences and needs. Your therapist will create a safe space for you to explore and process traumatic memories, emotions, and triggers. Sessions may involve discussing your trauma history, learning coping skills, practicing relaxation techniques, and gradually confronting trauma-related memories or situations. The pace and focus of therapy will be guided by your goals and comfort level, with your therapist providing support and guidance every step of the way.
