Trauma is a person’s emotional response to a distressing experience. Few people can go through life without encountering some kind of trauma. Many psychological problems are related to unexpressed, unhealed trauma. Often those seeking burnout treatment or treatment for mild depression find that they have some kind of trauma. A mild emotional trauma can be caused by parents yelling at you as a child, a divorce, or your boss ridiculing you. A more severe case of emotional trauma is the sudden loss of a parent or long-term and constant psychological abuse by a parent or spouse. When traumatic experiences are unresolved, tension accumulates, and repressed memories can develop physical symptoms. 

Emotionally and physically traumatic experiences can both cause fear, anxiety, shock, anger, aggression, sadness or emotional numbness. Often people suffering from trauma have a recurring difficulty in close relationships, whether partners, spouses or close friends. PRAJNA Therapy Retreats Bali focuses on providing its clients with emotional crisis management on how to improve quality of life at work and at home.

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

The emotional pain and fear that are involved in trauma strangle the nervous system and are often the cause of post-traumatic stress. Post-traumatic stress disorder resulting from shock or trauma causes multiple symptoms including flashbacks, nightmares, anxiety, depression, anger, negativity, suspiciousness, panic, chronic physical pain and burnout.  For those with burnout, burnout treatment is required.

Once memories and feelings are released and processed through therapeutic activities, post-traumatic symptoms begin to fade.

Positive psychological changes after trauma are also possible when people acknowledge their difficulties and see themselves as survivors rather than victims of unfortunate experience. These can include building resilience, developing effective coping skills, and developing a sense of self-efficacy. Some people may undergo post-traumatic growth, forging stronger relationships, redefining their relationship with new meaning and/or spiritual purpose, and gaining a deeper appreciation for life. It may sound contradictory, but post-traumatic growth can exist right alongside PTSD.
