Types of traumas are grouped into Acute, Chronic and Complex traumas. All types of traumas would benefit from counseling when a person needs help coping with the experience. Examples of acute trauma are natural disasters, accidents, or the sudden death of a loved one- the event happens once. Examples of chronic trauma are childhood abuse or intimate partner violence where the event is repeated. A complex trauma is something life threatening and long term, such as experiencing a war zone/ combat zone, or human trafficking – events were life threatening, emotionally challenging and occur over a period of time.
Will counseling help me be a better partner?
You may wonder, how can my own individual counseling help me to be a better partner? The answer is- in many ways. Counseling, first and foremost, helps you be happier, and if you are happier, you are more likely to be a better partner. Also, individual counseling has been shown to help us communicate better, we can navigate disagreements more positively, and we often begin to feel less desperate in our relationships, making us better partners. Lastly, when children are involved, individual therapy often helps us be better parents, which in turn, often means we are better partners.
