Many people experience something traumatic at some point in their life. A traumatic event is one where you are in danger, perhaps where there is threat to life or safety, such as an accident, assault, natural disaster, war, illness or abuse. It can also be an event where you witness something traumatic happening to others or learn about it happening to a loved one.
Good Thinking has produced several resources designed to help you cope with trauma, including the new ‘Coping with Trauma’ workbook and accompanying short film series. These have been produced in partnership with trauma expert Caroline Harrison, a Cognitive Behavioural Therapist at South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust.
