Coping With Family Trauma

Did you know that there are different types of trauma? The type of trauma an individual has experienced can change the way they cope with it, as well as what treatment options may work best. It’s important to know about the different types of trauma, including family trauma. With this knowledge, you can make informed decisions about your own mental health.

Family Trauma

A specific type of traumatic experience, family trauma is any traumatic event that impacts an entire family. Some examples of this could be violence, war, natural disaster, or the loss of a loved one. No one kind of circumstance is specifically defined as family trauma; the event simply needs to impact a family as a whole.

Defining Family

When it comes to discussing family trauma, questions around defining family often arise. “Family” can be uniquely defined by the individuals who are part of the unit. Whether the trauma occurs to or within a chosen family or biological family, trauma can have just as large an impact.

Treatment Options

Everyone deals with trauma differently. Additionally, different people benefit more from some treatment options than others. Luckily, there are a variety of treatment options to help families and their members heal from trauma. While it’s not possible to erase trauma from the past, individuals can develop coping skills to move past the events and get through difficult moments.

Many people use talk therapy to work through family trauma. Individuals can either participate in therapy individually or as a family. Both options can be effective. Determining which one is right primarily depends on individual preferences and mental health treatment goals.
