Trauma Recovery

People can experience a range of physical, mental, emotional and behavioural reactions to distressing or frightening events.

These reactions are normal and usually subside as a part of the body’s natural healing and recovery process. There are also things you can do to cope with and ease trauma recovery. However, if your reactions don’t subside after 3-4 weeks please consider seeking professional help.

To learn more about trauma reactions and trauma recovery, please take a look at this useful resource provided by the Better Health Channel.

For our Farsi speaking clients and community, a version of this resource has been translated by Hollyburn Counsellor Akbar Safari, MA, RCC.
