Causes Of Trauma
The American Psychological Association defines trauma as the emotional response an individual has to a negative event. Trauma is a normal reaction to this type of event. However, sometimes the negative effects of traumatic events can interfere with your ability to live life normally. When this happens, you may need some help to restore yourself to overall well-being. The common causes of trauma are various and complex. There are two main types of traumatic events that can cause lasting pain, traumatic emotional events and traumatic physical events. Sometimes, you can experience both types of traumas in one event, such as a natural disaster or an assault. In a natural disaster and assault, you may experience both a physical injury and emotional pain. There are many causes of trauma, including the following four common causes:
- Natural disasters such as earthquakes, hurricanes, or floods.
- Assault. This can include sexual violence and sexual assault, as well.
- Loss of a loved one.
- Witnessing an act of violence.
These four causes are quite common causes of severe traumatic symptoms. Other causes can include domestic violence, severe injury or illness, harassment, and watching traumatic events on tv or the internet. You do not always have to be present at an event to feel traumatized by the event. Many care workers experience vicarious and second victim trauma in the health care field. The workplace can be a place where you may experience traumatic events either first-hand or second-hand by seeing the effects of trauma. If you are suffering from a traumatic event, consider getting help with your symptom management with a trauma therapy program.
