How to Deal with Trauma and Traumatic Stress

How to deal with trauma and traumatic stress –  Recently, Hurricane Sandy caused severe damage to the Northeast including New York, Connecticut and New Jersey. Some people lost their homes due to wind and water damage and many families have had to deal with power outages for extended periods of time. Some people (such as the elderly and the sick ) have not able to easily get food and water, and those without power have had no heat.  And still others have been displaced, staying with friends or relatives or making use of emergency shelters.  These are traumatic events.

Even as the emergency response continues and matters improve, you may feel stressed, overwhelmed or depressed.   These feelings can be expected after the trauma wreaked by Sandy.

If you’re trying to recover from the devastation of dealing with both the physical and emotional trauma caused by the storm, you might find these reources helpful.
