Trauma Recovery – Who Recovers and Why
Recently, longitudinal studies have begun to show us how trauma is recorded in the brain and what it looks like in brain scans when trauma is unresolved.
Resilience and overall health seem to be major factors in our ability to heal from trauma. A sense of community, and healthy connections within a community, have a major impact on healing. Nurturing touch is also a major component of healing trauma.
I will write more later this week about who is more likely to end up with PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder) after a traumatic event as well as other factors that impact us all.
