Most of us will experience a traumatic event at some point in our lives, such as interpersonal violence, accidents, sudden death of a loved one, or disasters. Following trauma, we may experience unwanted distressing memories and feel a wide range of negative emotions. Our sense of self and the world may also change. This talk will discuss research findings on helpful and unhelpful ways of coping with trauma.
