What is Emotional or Psychological Trauma?
Emotional trauma, also known as psychological trauma, arises from experiences that usually involve a grave threat to your safety or life. Emotional or psychological trauma is any life event, such as divorce, which leaves you feeling helpless, afraid, distressed, or despondent. Also, emotional trauma may destroy your sense of security, forcing you to reimagine how you understand the world.
Symptoms, such as anxiety and anger, can spring up at any time and may last for many years. However, emotional trauma wellness at Recovery Mountain can help. Our highly skilled and experienced therapists use various scientific and evidence-based practices to help you heal and recover from emotional trauma.
Types of Emotional or Psychological Trauma
Emotional trauma can take on many different forms. Most individuals will experience at least one emotional or psychological trauma in their lifetime.
While some types of emotional trauma, such as military combat, may seem more severe or extreme than others, any emotional trauma could have lasting and serious emotional effects.
The following are some common examples of emotional trauma:
- Loss of a close friend or family member
- Experiencing a natural disaster, such as a hurricane
- Experiencing gun violence, car accidents, and terrorist attacks
- Military combat
- Assault, domestic violence, or abuse
- Life-threatening or severe illnesses, such as cancer
- Losing your job
Insight into Emotional Trauma and Addiction
Traumatic experiences, such as bullying, can cause psychological health issues that make you more prone to using substance use or alcohol as a coping mechanism. However, substance use or alcoholism often conceals the harmful symptoms and signs of traumatic experiences.
An emotional trauma therapy program at Recovery Mountain helps people struggling to overcome addiction and trauma live sober and healthier lives.
When you complete addiction wellness at our New Hampshire facility, you can stop using substances to numb severe depression and anxiety or mask trauma-related stress.
Symptoms of Emotional Trauma
Emotional trauma can have a significant long-term effect on your thinking habits, emotions, and behaviors. You may feel like you are a completely different person after you experience emotional trauma, or you might divide your life into two periods: before your psychological trauma and after.

- Feeling on edge or anxious
- Feeling hopeless or helpless
- Social isolation
- Crying more frequently than usual<
- Change in your self-image

wellness for Emotional Trauma in a Safe and Comfortable Setting
To heal from psychological or emotional trauma, resolving the unpleasant memories and feelings you have long avoided is vital. You will also have to discharge pent-up “fight-or-flight” energy, rebuild your ability to trust others, and learn to regulate and control strong emotions.
An emotional trauma specialist at Recovery Mountain may use different therapy approaches for your wellness.
This therapy technique focuses on bodily sensations instead of memories and thoughts about the traumatic event or circumstances. By concentrating on what is happening in the body, our therapists will help you release pent-up trauma-related energy through crying, shaking, and other types of physical release.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing
EMDR incorporates various elements and aspects of cognitive-behavioral therapy with eye movements and other rhythmic, left-right stimulation to “unfreeze” traumatic memories.
This helps you process and assess your feelings and thoughts about a trauma. CBT teaches our clients coping techniques and skills to manage harmful thoughts or behaviors so they can lead a better life.
Our work usually starts with the assignment of a suitable wellness team sensitive to problems and issues related to emotional trauma, considering gender, family dynamics, and co-existing psychological, medical, and psychiatric issues.
