Definition
Trauma therapy is help administered by professionals to traumatised people in order to help them with the prevention, amelioration, healing and reduction of the consequences of trauma.
Traumatised people have experienced threat of any or all of physical, mental or social annihilation. Trauma sequelae result in an indefinite loss of a previous equilibrium for a less life enhancing one. They result in biological,
psychological and social symptoms and illnesses.
Professionals are people trained to help traumatised victims. Their prime motive and obligation is to apply their expertise for the welfare of their clients or patients. They put the latter’s interests before their own or the interests of any other third party (ies). The rewards for their efforts are fees, or payments in some other culturally agreed to currency. Professional here will mean professional trauma therapists.
