Trauma can have a devastating impact on a person's mental health, leading to serious issues such as depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Survivors of sexual assault or domestic violence may feel embarrassed or lack social support, which can increase the risk of developing PTSD. Prolonged abuse can also cause personality changes, such as identity deformations and kinship deformations. Untreated PTSD can lead to other mental health problems, such as depression and anxiety, poor quality of life, and increased alcohol and substance use.
It can also cause tensions in friendships and family relationships, as well as difficulties in maintaining employment. The good news is that post-traumatic stress disorder is treatable. To find resources on PTSD, I recommend the National Center for PTSD. Troubling childhood experiences can have a profound effect on a person for the rest of their life.
Experiences of abandonment, neglect, abuse, or parenting by parents with emotional disorders often have a lasting and pervasive impact. Childhood trauma can result in ineffective patterns of relating to others, mood disorders, personality disorders with dangerous behaviors, such as self-mutilation or suicidal characteristics, and drug abuse. Adults who experienced childhood trauma can greatly benefit from specific trauma management techniques, such as EMDR. Children who have recently experienced personal or social trauma can resolve emotional disorders extremely quickly, with a preventive effect that can help develop great resilience and block the development of adult problems related to trauma.
People with trauma or post-traumatic stress disorder often experience a persistent state of high stress that limits their ability to process, understand and react to emotions and situations.

Even in minor accidents, such as those where the fenders bend, the body absorbs a significant amount of force. The neck, shoulders and back and associated soft tissues often suffer the greatest impact from an accident.
Injuries such as whiplash are often not noticed until a day or two after the accident. Injuries that aren't treated can cause a number of long-term problems as the spine, muscles, and ligaments heal in an abnormal position. Victims of car injuries who don't actually get their injuries evaluated and treated will become long-term chronic pain patients for the rest of their lives. Below we provide useful information and advice that we truly believe will minimize uncertainty or delay in treatment after a traumatic event.
A typical treatment for the effective management of psychological trauma requires six months to a year of constant effort if the trauma has not been treated for a long time. Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing therapy is another form of therapy for childhood trauma in adults. At least ninety percent of adults in the United States have experienced at least one traumatic event in their lifetime. Everyone at some point in their life will have to deal with some type of trauma in one way or another.
To begin I want to express my gratitude to the many emergency responders from Colorado and elsewhere who travel to Florida and surrounding regions to assist in rescue and recovery efforts. Whether in childhood and adolescence in adulthood or even in old age anyone can suffer trauma at any time. Keep in mind that these are just a few common symptoms of childhood trauma in trauma victims and often many people may have several of these symptoms or even show none at all. In EMDR the therapist engages the person's brain in bilateral stimulation that helps them complete the processing of a traumatic experience.
A typical 12-session period has been shown to reduce trauma for veterans victims of sexual assault and children who have experienced abuse or trauma.
