Common Stress Reactions to Trauma
Some reactions are common to people who experience traumatic stress as a result of witnessing or being involved in a traumatic event. Everyone who is exposed to such an event is affected by it and may experience some reaction. Being party to a traumatic incident reminds us that we are also vulnerable to tragedy. Our protective belief that “nothing could happen to me or to people I know” can be momentarily stripped away.
You can also access York University’s “Common Stress Reactions to Trauma” for more information.
