An Overview of Trauma

An Overview of Trauma

Dr. Johnson Tam-Lit

Trauma affects us all.

Everyone, at some point, will experience it.

This zoom presentation is a small overview of what it can look like.

Our autonomic nervous system is affected without us being aware of it.

Past traumatic memories awake when our brains get triggered into hyper-vigilant states. If you have not been traumatised by an event recently, then the chances are you will be soon.

I will discuss some principles of dealing with traumatic events and maintaining good mental health.

I’ll also discuss how traumatic events affect children’s ability to learn and feel safe.

This is not meant to advise individual cases; if you are affected by anything mentioned, please seek professional help.
