Trauma and reclaiming life

How to Reclaim Life After Experiencing Trauma

Most humans would agree that fear, anger, and pain don’t feel good or create positive outcomes most of the time. While these emotions arise for various reasons, they are also typical reactions for people who are experiencing or have experienced trauma. According to the National Council for Behavioral Health, 70% of adults (roughly 224 million people) in the U.S. have experienced some type of traumatic event at least once in their lives. Researchers have found that trauma can be passed down from a parent to their offspring and are working on advancing knowledge in this area. Research on the correction of trauma through positive experiences is also on the rise.
