How to move forward and heal from traumatic events

11 Jan 2022

Today, we are talking about moving forward and healing from traumatic events which have caused grief, pain and emotional disregulation.

Exposure to trauma often manifests in complex socio-emotional irregularities, which influence behavior, relationships, mood and psychology.

According to @betterhelp Humans experience grief on a non linear spectrum often referred to as the 7 stages, which include: Shock and Denial,

Pain and Guilt, Anger and Bargaining, Depression, Reflection, and Loneliness, Acceptance.

How do we process and manage the psychosocial symptoms associated with these phases? @psychcentralofficial recognizes 6 key coping skills that can enhance the healing process and enable us to move forward with confidence.

  1. Positive Reframing
  2. Engaging in Humor
  3. Spirituality
  4. Acceptance
  5. Perspective Focusing
  6. Problem Solving

The key is to recognize your emotional state and behavioral tendencies, where are you in the healing process? Are you utilizing an active or avoidant perspective towards coping? Who encompasses your support system, are they accessible? And what internal structures can be established to maintain thought process and regulate mental health? Such as affirmations, mindfulness strategies and cognitive restructuring.

Healing is a journey. Grief is a complex and dynamic process. Just know, it’s okay to be vulnerable, it’s okay to feel and experience your emotions. Never forget you are resilient, and you are capable. The strength you develop from these experiences will establish the platform that you will later heal, develop and prosper from.

Spirituality and Mental Health

According to the Pew Research Religious Landscape Study, upwards of 80% of Americans identify with a religious affiliation (70% Christian, 6%-10% Non-Christian Faiths). With a notable rise in representation observed between 2018-2020, it is apparent this recent increase marks an upward shift in belief amongst the population.

Mental Health and Addiction

According to current metrics, around 31.9 million Americans are active drug users, totaling to about 11.7% of the general population. If you include alcohol and tobacco, this number increases sharply to 165 million or 60.2%.
