What is trauma? Trauma refers to an emotional and/or physical response to a distressing event or experience that overwhelms an individual's ability to cope. Trauma can arise from events such as the loss of a loved one, an attack on one’s person, or accidents. These are, however, not the only causes of trauma. Typical triggers of trauma include the loss of control, a sense of betrayal, helplessness, as well as being hurt either physically or emotionally. By gaining insights through trauma therapy from a clinical psychologist in Singapore, it can help traumatised individuals better navigate their trauma.
