Therapy and Treatment for Emotional Trauma and PTSD
At Lumion, our mission is to offer hope and lasting relief to those who are suffering from PTSD, trauma, and other mental health conditions.
Psychological or emotional trauma can come in many forms. The result of an individual’s response to a traumatic event, based on resilience and overall mental health, frequently dictates how the trauma impacts one’s ability to function.
Psychological trauma is a type of damage to the mind that occurs because of a severely distressing event. Such trauma is often the result of an overwhelming amount of stress that exceeds one’s ability to cope, or integrate the emotions involved with that experience. A traumatic event is an experience that causes physical, emotional, psychological distress, or harm. It is an event that is perceived and experienced as a threat to one’s safety or to the stability of one’s world. Such an event is often the cause of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
- Some 5.2 million adults will experience PTSD this year.
- Women are TWICE as likely to experience PTSD as men.
Emotional and psychological trauma is the result of extraordinarily stressful events that shatter your sense of security, making you feel helpless in a dangerous world.
“Get over it” is one of the most insensitive statements a person can make to someone who is coping with emotional trauma or PTSD.
Symptoms and Treatment of Trauma and PTSD
We have made great strides in the treatment of psychological trauma, using: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Medications, our TMS affiliate experts work with, existential therapy, spiritual therapy, individual therapy, family/relational therapy.
Trauma symptoms typically last from a few days to a few months, gradually fading as you process the unsettling event. But even when you’re feeling better, you may be troubled from time to time by painful memories or emotions – especially in response to triggers, such as an anniversary of the event or something that reminds you of the trauma.
Emotional and psychological trauma can be caused by:
- One-time events, such as an accident, injury, natural disaster, or violent attack
- Ongoing, relentless stress, such as living in a crime-ridden neighborhood or battling a life-threatening illness
- Commonly overlooked causes, such as surgery (especially in the first 3 years of life), the sudden death of someone close, the breakup of a significant relationship, or a humiliating or deeply disappointing experience
