Along with the whole world, trauma and related disorders are increasing rapidly in our country.
Our country is on a risky geography in terms of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, the main symptom of which is anxiety and fear, when it is considered together with its location in the earthquake zone, wars and migrations in its region, as well as the escalating terror and violence (women, children, etc.).
Trauma is an event that disrupts the normal flow of our lives, shocks, shocks, causes intense stress and anxiety, and interrupts our lives.
In traumatic situations, symptoms such as overstimulation, sudden reactions, avoiding situations that remind the event, experiencing events over and over again, having nightmares, freezing, inability to react, lethargy, loss of control, sweating, trembling, and inability to remember certain parts of the event can be seen.
Trauma undermines the sense of security. However, everyone’s degree of trauma and their reactions are different. An event that affects us a lot may not affect someone else at all.
One in three people experience a traumatic event at some point in their life. Post Traumatic Stress Disorder affects 10-15% of those exposed to the event. However, even though many people experience Post Traumatic Stress Disorder PTSD, they have not received any help in this regard. However, it is possible to relax with highly effective treatments.
Traumatic memories, unlike normal memories, come at times we do not want, with the intensity we do not want and with the emotions we do not want, and they turn life into a nightmare. Our brain tries over and over to turn the traumatic memory into a normal memory. Buddha brings up what we call re-experiencing over and over again. At this point, the help of an expert is essential.
There are drug treatments and psychotherapy options in the treatment. Although there are different treatment options, EMDR is the most effective treatment that comes to mind when trauma is mentioned. EMDR (Eye movement desensitization and reprocesing) is a desensitization and restructuring treatment with eye movements. It is extremely effective and pleasing when applied by competent people. The best part is that the patient heals without realizing it, on his own, with the principle of stimulating both lobes of his brain at the same time. The therapist is a guide, guide and companion.
