Traumatic events that occur in your life can have lasting effects. Many women continue to have triggered emotions and negative thoughts due to trauma in their past. The mental health issues that are presently occurring may seem unrelated to events that happened years before, but often they are a direct result of trauma that has not been properly processed. At FEM Women’s Wellness, we offer processing trauma therapy at our clinic in the Reno, Lake Tahoe and Carson City, NV, area.
What is trauma and why does it need to be processed? Trauma is not the event itself but how you respond. Two people can experience the same event, but both will not necessarily experience trauma. When an event is extremely disturbing or threatening, it can leave lingering after effects. Trauma cannot be processed while it is happening, but it must be processed at some point to avoid negative impacts on health.
There are many mental health issues that are related to unprocessed trauma. These include disorders like PTSD and panic attacks, as well as depression and anxiety. Processing trauma therapy includes a wide assortment of therapy methods to go back to the event and reorganize your thoughts and reactions to the trauma.
