How to deal with trauma

By Cassandra Foster. CREATED Oct 23, 2012

WFTX - Most of us think of trauma as something awful that happens to others: rape, kidnapping, airplane crash, or PTSD. But trauma can encompass many life events.

Most of us have gone through trauma such as the loss of a loved one, a car accident, or a humiliating teacher in third grade.

These events can stay with us for a lifetime and affect our relationships, jobs, and day-to-day living. "Trauma" is defined as any experience that continues to exert a negative influence on us.

Local therapist, Mark Chidley, is one of very few counselors in SW Florida trained in Rapid Resolution Therapy.
