Faith & Trauma

Learn. Listen. Be a Help.

The effects of trauma can stem from a wide range of experiences and events, such as: abuse in childhood, neglect, domestic violence, rape, sudden death of a loved one, natural disasters, and war. Trauma affects more people than you may think. In fact, research by the National Institute of Health indicates that approximately 51% of women and 61% of men the U.S. will experience at least one traumatic event in their lifetime.

The human response to trauma occurs on three levels: biological, psychological, and social. It is not due to personal weakness or weak faith, but it is a normal reaction.

Healing from trauma takes time. Learning how to filter past traumatic experiences through God’s grace and implementing some practical stress relieving skills and tools can aid in the healing process and provide hope.
