What does it feel like to be facing a trauma?
You can experience a trauma if something happens to you that threatens your security, such as a break-in, loss of employment, redundancy, infidelity or simply life as you know it.
A trauma or critical incident is any event that results in a person or a group of people experiencing severe emotional distress following any horrible event. A person’s experience of trauma is quite subjective – what is horrible to one person may not be experienced in the same way by another.
Consequences of a trauma (critical incident)…
A person is likely to experience a range of stress reactions including physical (nausea, headaches), cognitive (confusion, inability to make decisions), and behavioral (anxiety, guilt, crying). These may last for days, weeks, sometimes months and are likely to affect a person’s functioning at work and at home.
