The American Psychological Association states “Trauma is an emotional response to a terrible event like an accident, rape or natural disaster. Immediately after the event, shock and denial are typical. Longer term reactions include unpredictable emotions, flashbacks, strained relationships and even physical symptoms like headaches or nausea. While these feelings are normal, some people have difficulty moving on with their lives.” According to the National Centre for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) 8 out of 100 will experience PTSD at some point in their life. Not everyone who has experienced a trauma will meet the criteria for post-traumatic stress disorder. This workshop will talk about the different risk factors for individuals developing trauma, some coping strategies for individuals who do and don’t meet the criteria for PTSD and resources for where individuals can go for more help.

When you were younger, did you have your life planned out? When we are younger we often think about our future and imagine that we will “have it all” when we get older. When we are old enough to drive, we will have the car of our dreams. When we move out, we will be able to transition seamlessly and be independent, no longer having to rely on our parents for anything. We think we will graduate college by 21, find a great job, get married, get promoted at work, buy a house, have one or two children, move up the corporate ladder and then retire by the time you were 50 at the latest.
