Common Types of Psychological Trauma

This condition stems from experiencing or witnessing a traumatic event, leading to symptoms like flashbacks, nightmares, and severe anxiety. Individuals suffering from PTSD may avoid reminders of the trauma or feel emotionally numb or detached, making daily functioning difficult. 

Major depressive disorder is a mood disorder characterized by persistent feelings of sadness, hopelessness, and loss of interest in activities once enjoyed. Following a traumatic event, individuals may experience overwhelming emotions, changes in their appetite or sleep patterns, and difficulty concentrating.

Adjustment disorder arises when individuals struggle to adapt to significant life changes or stressful events, resulting in emotional distress and compromised functioning. Common symptoms encompass feelings of anxiety, sadness, irritability, and noticeable shifts in behaviour.

Somatic symptom disorder involves distressing physical symptoms without a clear medical explanation, often stemming from underlying psychological issues or trauma. Individuals may experience pain, fatigue, gastrointestinal problems, or other symptoms that significantly impact daily life.
