Trauma and Acute crisis reaction
Emotional and psychological trauma can be the result of extraordinarily stressful events that shatter your sense of security, which can make you feel helpless and vulnerable in a dangerous world.
Emotional and psychological trauma can be caused by a one-time event, such as a horrible accident, a natural disaster, a violent attack.
It can also stem from ongoing, relentless stress, such as living in a crime-ridden neighbourhood or struggling with major health issues (93).
Psychological trauma may cause acute stress disorder (ASD) which may lead on to posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). In times of war, psychological trauma has been known as shell shock or combat stress reaction (CSR).
Acute stress reaction, or Acute crisis reaction, is a reaction to stress.
A person usually uses the coping strategy, such as avoidance, and such defence mechanisms as denial, displacement, regression.
Talking to a therapist could help you (93).
Psychological counselling helps to develop stress reduction strategies:
* solving problems coping strategy and
* reducing emotional reaction coping strategy.
Counselling and Psychotherapy may be provided via Skype and FaceTime in the comfort of your home, office or any place of your choice.
