Trauma Q & A

What is trauma?

Trauma describes scary, violent, or life-threatening events that happen to anyone, including youth, adults, and older adults. The event may involve you directly or be someone you know.

Common examples of trauma include:

  • Physical abuse
  • Sexual abuse
  • Emotional neglect
  • Death of a loved one

You can also experience trauma due to circumstances in the household, such as violence, substance abuse, or mental illness.

Traumatic events can have a significant and long-lasting impact on your physical, emotional, and mental health and lead to overwhelming feelings of fear or anxiety.

Everyone interprets their experiences in unique and personal ways, so it’s important to address the situation with professional help as early as possible. Without the right care, trauma can result in long-term complications.

What services are available for trauma?

The experienced therapy team at Integrated MD Care offers therapeutic services to address trauma for people of all ages. The team most commonly sees spouses and adult children of end-of-life patients, but they support all ages, including youth, adults, and older adults.

Through talk therapy, the therapists focus on unraveling the many emotions you feel because of a traumatic experience. Based on your individual needs, the therapy team customizes a plan that may include other services to promote physical and mental health.

When should I seek treatment for trauma?

If you’re struggling with the overwhelming emotions of a trauma, it’s important to seek treatment as soon as possible. With timely treatment, the Integrated MD Care team can reduce your risk for long-term complications, such as anxiety, depression, and chronic stress disorder.
