Trauma occurs when we have experienced something so awful or frightening that it sets our bodies' survival mechanisms into action, but they remain unresolved.  When trauma is not carefully and gently worked through, our bodies may remain stuck in hyper alert or frozen survival mode impeding our ability to heal.
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) has been discussed in relation to war survivors but it also affects people who have experienced such things as car accidents, rape, surgical procedures, attack, chronic abuse, among other unfortunate experiences.
There is a lot of suffering in trauma and it is an unfortunate part of life for many people. Fortunately, however, with the techniques of Somatic Experiencing (SE®), healing is possible.
