Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

Understanding Trauma

Trauma is a deeply disturbing event that infringes upon an individual’s sense of control and may reduce their capacity to integrate the situation or circumstances into their current reality. When most people think about trauma, they tend to think about those who have been exposed to war, combat, natural disasters, physical or sexual abuse, terrorism, and catastrophic accidents. These are some of the most profound, and some may argue the most debilitating, experiences one can endure. However, a person does not have to undergo an overtly distressing event for it to affect them. An accumulation of smaller “everyday” or less pronounced events can still be traumatic.

We provide counseling services for individuals with different trauma disorders, including post-traumatic stress disorder. No matter what trauma you may be suffering from, the experienced professionals at Cox Behavioral Health Group are here to help you take active steps toward a healthier and more enjoyable life. 

Large 'T' Traumas

Large ‘T’ traumas are extraordinary and significant events such as war and natural disasters that leave an individual feeling powerless and having no sense of control. A key factor in large ‘T’ traumas is the feeling of helplessness.

Small 't' Traumas

Small ‘t’ traumas are those events that exceed our ability to cope and cause disruption in our ability to function on an emotional level. They are distressing events but are not inherently life or body threatening.

Trauma Avoidance

Avoidance is common in either form of trauma. The difference is that in large ‘T’ traumas the individual tends to overtly and decisively engage in actions to minimize distress by eliminating or reducing reminders.
