Understanding Trauma Triggers

Understanding Trauma Triggers


It’s normal to feel upset, anxious, or extremely uncomfortable when we encounter difficult content.  

Having these strong reaction is normal and learning to regulate them is part of healthy emotional development


Trauma triggers are different. They often include a loss of a person’s sense of time, space, and/or self.

Emotion is amplified, completely muffled, or sometimes seemingly unrelated to a situation. Triggers are like a trapdoor in the brain.
