What Happens in the Brain During Trauma?

After trauma, clients are often left with many painful sensations and emotions . . .
. . . including shame and guilt.

And that’s especially true if they weren’t able to protect themselves or escape.

That’s why it can be so useful to help them understand how their brain and body did work to protect them during the traumatic event.

Because when people find out that their response was an adaptive reaction that helped them survive, that can open the door to healing.
