6 Signs and Symptoms of Psychological Trauma.

As a result of experiencing a traumatic event, whether it occurs once or repeatedly, the psyche can become damaged. This damage, known as psychological trauma, may come to light right away or can take as long as several weeks or years.

Psychological trauma can be caused by exposure to such things as violence and abuse, vehicle accidents, natural disasters and war, but Delta Medical Center says that “any event that leaves someone feeling alone and overwhelmed can be considered traumatic.” This is because the details of the event itself are not what determines if it is traumatic, “it is a person’s subjective emotional experience of the event.” Such an experience can affect a person’s cognitive, behavioral, physical and psychological well-being, and may present itself in the form of these six signs and symptoms.
