Traumas and their consequences

Individual trauma results from events that are experienced by a person as physically or emotionally harmful or threatening. In such circumstances people react in a specific way that can have lasting adverse effects on the individual's functioning and physical, social, emotional, or spiritual well-being. The trauma reaction is mediated by large quantities of stress hormones to prepare the body and mind for fight, flight or near death-freeze.

Memory and rational thinking are impaired and the memory is fragmented.  Years or even decades later the dysfunctionally stored memories can become triggered by a sound, or a smell, and the person seems to relive the whole event as if it would be happening now. This is called a posttraumatic stress reaction. The reaction is involuntary and the person may seem »crazy« to the observers.

Painful memories of childhood traumas are often a reason why people start abusing substances and behaviors that can comfort their pains. This can lead to addictions. Programs for treating addictions must involve grief and trauma recovery
