Resources for Traumatic Stress | Dr. Arielle Schwartz

When someone undergoes a traumatic event, it is common to experience emotions such as anxiety, fear, sadness, and even confusion. Although these feelings can be difficult to process, they are actually a natural signal that your body’s stress responses have ignited. These emotions associated with trauma are very normal to experience, but if you start to have more concerning symptoms such as intrusive thoughts or difficulty sleeping, it is advised to seek out the help of a professional therapist.

  • If the symptoms are pervasive and give you things like nightmares for a long time, you should seek help.
  • You can work with your body by using these exercises to help relieve your stress.
