Support in trauma recovery is essential because it helps build resilience. Resilience is the process and outcome of successfully adapting to complex or challenging life experiences, primarily through mental, emotional, and behavioral flexibility and adjustment to external and internal demands. Remember that resilience is a skill, like riding a bike. The more you practice, the better you’ll be. So what is the importance of support in trauma recovery?

What does it mean to have support?

Supporting someone means dressing into their desires. We have to feel what the person in need truly needs, what they lack, whether it is an ability, strength, or knowledge, so we can fully realize their need. Being able to depend on family and friends to help support you during difficult times is always a positive thing that could increase the recovery phase of things. Educating those around you on how effective support is should increase their willingness to help you become better and get past the trauma that placed you in such an inadequate space.

What is trauma?

Trauma is the lasting emotional response that often results from living through a distressing event. Experiencing a traumatic event can harm a person’s sense of safety, sense of self, and ability to regulate emotions and navigate relationships. Longer-term reactions include unpredictable emotions, flashbacks, strained relationships, and even physical symptoms like headaches or nausea.

What are some examples of trauma?

  • Bullying– s a deliberate and unsolicited action that inflicts social, emotional, physical, and/or psychological harm to someone who is often perceived as less powerful. 
  • Community Violence Disaster- exposure to intentional acts of interpersonal violence committed in public areas by individuals who are not intimately related to the victim.
  • Early Childhood Trauma- generally refers to the traumatic experiences that occur to children aged 0-6.
  • Intimate Partner Violence- referred to as domestic violence, occurs when an individual purposely causes harm or threatens the risk of harm to any past or current partner or spouse.
  • Medical Trauma- refers to a set of psychological and physiological responses of children and their families to single or multiple medical events.
  • Physical Abuse- occurs when a parent or caregiver commits an act that results in physical injury to a child or adolescent.

What does recovery indeed mean?

Recovery means you are making progress and committing to becoming better, yet you might not be “cured.”  When it comes to mental illness, recovery can mean different things to people; it will mean no longer having symptoms of their mental health condition. For others, it will mean managing their symptoms, regaining control of their life, and learning new ways to live the life they want. No matter what recovery means to you, remember never to give up.

The Prayer of Salvation

Jesus, I don't know You, and I don't know what Your plan is for me. But thank you for coming to die in my place. I'm sorry for anything I've ever done wrong in my life. I don't understand how You could ever forgive me, but if You really would, I would like to accept your free gift of grace and complete forgiveness. Please come into my life and take control, and help me trust You. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.
