Abuse Trauma

Abuse traumaTrauma that originates from abuse is similar to other types of trauma, but the effects can be longer lasting and sometimes more difficult to deal with. Even if the abuse occurs during childhood or adolescence, the after effects may carry on into adulthood. This is one of the reasons that treatment for abuse trauma should be taken seriously. Here at GoMentor.com, we offer online therapy for this and other types of trauma. While you may be able to get help, here are some other things to consider about abuse trauma before you make your decision. While abuse is horrible, sometimes the trauma that comes afterward can be just as difficult - if not more - to deal with.

Causes of Abuse Trauma 

The primary cause of this type of trauma is, of course, the abuse, which may take many forms. Emotional, physical, sexual abuse or a combination of all three may be one of the main reasons people suffer from abuse trauma.  The intensity and length of the abuse play a small role in the degree of problems with trauma, but typically any type of abuse is going to have a lasting effect on a person, especially if they're a small child.

Symptoms and Dangers of Abuse Trauma 

The thing to note about the symptoms of abuse trauma is that they tend to appear when something triggers a deep rooted memory of the past abuse. This can be a small, a song, a color, or even an emotional mood. Beyond that, the signs of abuse trauma are similar to other types of trauma. Some of the major indicators include changes in behavior, depression, sleep problems and various other physical and psychological difficulties. If not treated, abuse trauma can lead to many other mental disorders, including major depression or substance abuse. This is why treatment is so important if any of the symptoms do appear - even if they don’t show for months or years after the abuse originally happens.

Typical signs of a person with trauma caused by abusement:

  • Panic attacks
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Fearfulness
  • Irregular eating - too much or too little
  • Depression
  • Blocking of memories
