Trauma is an emotional response to a terrible event. Immediately after the event, shock and denial are typical. Longer term reactions include unpredictable emotions, flashbacks, strained relationships and even physical symptoms like headaches or nausea. A traumatic experience can be a one-time event or it can be an accumulation of many small, non-life-threatening incidents.
What makes an experience traumatic is subjective; two people who experience the same event may react very differently. It is human to react to difficult life events. However, if the reactions that you or a loved one are having to any event or circumstance are so intense that they have a negative impact upon daily functioning, it is time to get professional help.
