It’s true. The brain reacts similarly whether you are at war, if you think your child is in danger, or if you find out your partner is having an affair. When we are shocked in some way, or when our deeply held beliefs are challenged to such a degree that we feel intensely rocked and impacted, we can experience trauma. I found an article on Elephant Journal that explains it all. You can find it here:
As part of my therapy practice, I offer techniques such as EMDR, mindfulness, and somatic healing to assist the brain in processing both complex and simply trauma, If you know of anyone suffering from trauma, they may benefit from one or more of these techniques.
