Dealing With The Aftermath of Traumatic Events

Dealing With The Aftermath Of Traumatic Events

The emotional and mental effects of a traumatic event can last days, months, or even years. There’s no set timeline for processing and moving on from a traumatic event. 

If you’ve recently experienced a traumatic event, here are a few steps you can take to deal with the aftermath successfully.

How to Cope After a Traumatic Event

Before we can begin to cope after a traumatic event, it’s vital to understand what’s a traumatic event and recognize we’ve been through something difficult.

What is a Traumatic Event?

A traumatic event can include sudden illness, accidents, personal assault,  death, or natural disaster. What might affect some people might not affect others so that trauma can be very personal.

If an event is upsetting and brings up powerful negative feelings, it’s categorized as traumatic.

Common Signs of Trauma

If you’ve experienced one of the above events, you may have to deal with lingering trauma. 

Trauma is felt in many ways, including: 

  • Shock
  • Denial
  • Fear
  • Anger
  • Helplessness
  • Embarrassment 
  • Guilt
  • Sadness

These feelings can affect your sleep, concentration, appetite, and physical health.

How to Deal with Trauma

Traumatic events can cause you to feel overwhelmed by your feelings, and you might be tempted to ignore them. Some turn to drugs or alcohol to cope with these feelings. Others try to stay busy, so they don’t have to think about the event. 

It’s best to avoid all of these actions. Suppressing feelings or abusing drugs and alcohol will only make these feelings worse in the future and harder to handle. Instead, make sure you give yourself plenty of time to grieve. While it’s healthy to maintain a routine, don’t push yourself too hard. 

Make time to process the event and talk about it with others. Remember that crying when talking about it is normal and healthy but not necessarily expected for everyone. Conversely, it’s good to balance your time with friends and family with everyday activities without feeling like you have to talk about the event.

Dealing With The Physical Aftermath of Traumatic Events

Unfortunately, in addition to emotional aftermath, there’s also physical aftermath that requires clean-up and remediation. Tackling clean-up and remediation on your own can be a health hazard, and it can add to the trauma of the event. 

It’s safer and less likely to cause additional trauma if professionals are hired for trauma scene remediation.
