Trauma is an intensive learning in a short time. Although the expression itself is too short, it takes some time to understand its content. Sexual and violent traumas for people who experience cause intense emotion stimulation in individuals. In order to have a more detailed perspective on the subject, we must open learning.
Learnings have two dimensions; Time and intensity. If we spread a learning process for a very long time, learning does not take place. At the same time, if we determine a very short time, learning does not happen again. If we are going to learn about any subject, we must bring the time to an average setting under our own conditions. For example, if someone who wants to learn a language tries to learn a word without any infrastructure, this time will be too much for the person. At the same time, if a person allocates a word for only three minutes to learn, there will be no sufficient time for learning. We must have a sufficient time for learning.
In time, the density of the content learned is also important. If a person learns a word every day, he learns only enough words to speak after ten years. At the same time, if a person tries to learn a hundred words every day, this density can exhaust the person and leave the learning process. Time and intensity issues affect our learning status of any information. The important thing is that we can find an average path.
They are the excesses in the learning process in traumas. If a person experiences sexual (harassment and rape) and violence (bombs, war or beatings), psychological challenges will experience psychological difficulties in the learning process. If the person is exposed to experience in a very long period of time under normal circumstances, he cannot cope with more easily and less mental challenges due to a short time and intense learning. For example, if a soldier is suddenly attacked by a bomb, normally divides the present violence into the face and experiences a hundred days, it will not be a problem for him. However, since he was exposed to such intense content at a time, the person could not internalize his / her experience. This is the reason why traumas lie in the central nervous system. As we will not store data on a computer in a very short time, a person's emotion and cognition system cannot make sense of some experiences instantly. This is the essence of the work we do with the difficulties of trauma in therapy. The information in the central nervous system is to expose the person who experiences trauma again and again until the person gets used to. Images, sounds and odors are experienced repeatedly by the person. In this way, the current learning turns into a girl longer than time, from intense content to a diluted content.
As well as the principles of learning, feelings of justice and guilt are experienced by the clients. The person asks the question ‘Why did this happen to me’ and want to blame someone for the situation. This accusation sometimes turns to him, sometimes for those who harm him and sometimes do not follow this process and do not do anything. The person who has experienced traumatic experience in all this time without the therapy intervention is constantly exposed to disturbing thoughts and emotions and destroys himself with different answers to the question of who the criminal is. If a traumatic experience has taken place in yourself or when you know it, you should try to get/recommend as early as possible. You get rid of disturbing thoughts and free of guilt/anger.
Childhood traumas are as important as the traumas in adult life. Experienced, sexual and violent traumas experienced in childhood affect people's adult life and reduce the functionality. Violence and sexual content that comes to the person's mind; Visual, auditory and odor memories make life difficult. The therapy lasts longer because the traumas experienced in childhood affect the pattern of personality.
In summary, trauma is a learning problem. We turn this learning process, which is abnormal in time and intensity, into a normal learning process in therapy. We bring the memories trapped in the central nervous system to the face of the day until the client becomes normalized. There may be some pain and challenges in the process itself, but when the person is purified from the emotions and thoughts that arise during the counseling process, it relieves traumatic experience as much as he has almost experienced it. In this way, the client normalizes his experience and continues his life in a serene mood.
A calm mood is always possible. Let's not forget, every journey starts with the first step.
