Many of us will experience trauma at some point in our lives. With time, most people recover from their experiences without needing professional help. However, for a significant proportion of people the effects of trauma last for much longer. Fortunately, there are a range of excellent psychological therapies that can help. There is also a lot you can do to support someone who has survived trauma. Please find below information on how trauma can affect you, reactions to trauma and understanding PTSD.
