Trauma Therapy Atlanta
Trauma refers to a deeply distressing or disturbing experience that overwhelms an individual’s ability to cope. It can have lasting emotional, psychological, and even physical effects. Trauma can result from various events or situations, and people may react to and cope with trauma differently.
There are many types of traumas that one may experience in their lifetime. The most common forms of trauma that individuals seek treatment for include physical, emotional/psychological, sexual, developmental, and medical trauma.
The impact of trauma varies from person to person. Some individuals may experience symptoms immediately, while others may develop symptoms over time. Common reactions to trauma can include flashbacks, nightmares, anxiety, depression, difficulty concentrating, irritability, and avoidance of reminders of the traumatic event.
Treatment for trauma often involves therapy, such as cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) or eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR). Finding the help of a professional who specializes in trauma therapy is especially important when seeking treatment. Support from friends, family, and a strong social network can also play a crucial role in the healing process. In some cases, a medication consultation with a psychiatrist may be useful to discuss medications to help manage symptoms. At Evolve Behavioral: Advanced Psych Services, our therapists are trained in Trauma Therapy. Within our practice, Ferran Dennis, LCSW specializes in Trauma therapy and provides EMDR treatment.
