Trauma can have significant impact on the brain. It can result from extreme exposure to aversive events such as combat, emergent response, physical injury, abuse, or psychological insult. Whether the experience has resulted in symptoms of PTSD such as nightmares, hypervigilance, recklessness, or even self-destructive behavior to minor difficultly adjusting back to normalcy, we understand that each individual and each situation is unique.
