Trauma In Teenagers And Its Effects on Troubled Teens

Trauma In Teenagers And Its Effects on Troubled Teens

,


When troubled teens have suffered a traumatic experience, they need help.

It’s easy to think that counseling and therapy can provide a simple solution for whatever issues are plaguing them – and it can, for the most part. However, not all problems that teens face can be addressed with a one-size-fits-all approach. Just as troubled young adults and teens are all different, so are the types of trauma and their treatments. For troubled teens, their fear, anxiety, and stress are very real, and it takes an individualized approach to heal them.

Types of Trauma and How It Affects Troubled Teens

Trauma may be experienced from varying sources and occur in varying degrees. It may be from physical or sexual assault, emotional or verbal abuse, violence (in the community or home), from surviving a natural disaster, or from the loss of a loved one, to name a few. It may even stem from multiple sources. However, regardless of which of the types of trauma your teenager has gone through, how a teen reacts and deals with it will likely be different than another who has experienced the exact same thing.

For instance, a teen who has been physically assaulted may react by becoming angry and abusive to others, while another may become anxious and depressed. Another example is how struggling young adolescents react to the loss of a loved one: one teen may withdraw and indulge in self-harm, while another may bury his or her emotional distress and have it manifest it other ways, like with drugs or alcohol, or by developing an obsessive need to obtain attention through social media platforms.
There is no way to know exactly how deeply your teen has been affected until they begin to get help.
