Underneath many of our struggles and difficulties are traumatic experiences. Sometimes the impact and effect of these experiences are not known at the time and don’t show up for years. Many times, they surface when coping behaviors have broken down or have become out of control in and of themselves.
Trauma happens in a number of different ways. It can come from abuse or neglect as a child, or experiencing sexual or domestic violence. It can also come as an adult from experiences in a relationship or a life event (e.g. death, suicide, divorce, natural disaster). Either way, traumatic experiences effect us, and often times changes who we are, how we feel about ourselves, and how we see the world around us. However, just like physical injuries, the emotional wounds from traumas can be healed with time and support.
At Arizona Center for Marriage and Family Therapy, we help people overcome the effects of trauma so you don’t have to go through it alone.
