How can Ruth help you, have you ever experienced Trauma. What exactly is Trauma
Types of Trauma
Complex Trauma – It is often a result of repetitive direct harm and the effect increase as per interaction. It happens within a specific time or relationship.
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) – is a mental health condition that’s triggered by a terrifying event either experiencing it or witnessing it. Sufferers of PTSD have persistent and frightening thoughts and memories of their ordeal.
Developmental Trauma Disorder – This disorder forms during a child’s first five years of life. The result of abuse, neglect, and/or abandonment, developmental trauma interferes with the infant or child’s neurological, cognitive, and psychological development. It disrupts the victim’s ability to attach to an adult caregiver. An adult who inflicts developmental trauma usually doesn’t do it intentionally, rather, it happens because they are not aware of the social and emotional needs of children.
Persistent feelings of sadness and despair
Physical symptoms, such as nausea and headaches
Intense feelings of guilt, as if they are somehow responsible for the event
An altered sense of shame
Feelings of isolation and hopelessness
