Recovering From Traumatic Events

There are events we think can never happen. They may be unexpected, sudden and overwhelming. In some cases, there are no outwardly visible signs of personal physical injury, but there is nonetheless a serious emotional toll. It is common for people who have experienced traumatic situations to have very strong emotional reactions. Understanding normal responses to these abnormal events can aid you in coping effectively with your feelings, thoughts, and behaviors, and can help you along the path to recovery.
