Childhood trauma is defined as a series of traumatic events that occur during childhood. Children may encounter a variety of psychological traumas, including neglect, abandonment, sexual abuse, emotional abuse, and physical abuse, witnessing abuse of a sibling or parent, or having a parent who is mentally ill. These occurrences have significant psychological, physiological, and societal consequences, as well as long-term detrimental repercussions on health and well-being, such as antisocial conduct, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), and sleep disruptions. Children whose moms have gone through traumatic or stressful situations during pregnancy are also at a higher risk of developing mental health problems and other neurodevelopmental issues.
As the frequency of negative events rises, so does the chance of issues from childhood through maturity. Childhood trauma can raise the chance of mental problems such as PTSD, relationship troubles, depression, and substance misuse. Alterations in brain functioning throughout sensitive and essential phases of infant development can be adaptable to a hostile environment but difficult to adjust to more benign environments. Anxiety, worry, humiliation, guilt, helplessness, hopelessness, grief, sadness, and rage that began with a childhood trauma might persist as an adult.
Those who have experienced trauma as a child are also more prone to develop anxiety, depression, and suicidal ideation and self-harm PTSD, drug and alcohol abuse, and marital problems. The emotional ramifications of childhood trauma aren't the only ones. Childhood trauma survivors are also more likely to acquire asthma, coronary heart disease, diabetes, or have a stroke. They're also more likely to have a "heightened stress response," which can make it difficult to manage emotions, cause sleep problems, reduce immune function, and increase the risk of a variety of medical disorders later in life.
Treatment of Trauma
Childhood trauma has health consequences that can be reduced with proper care and treatment. Childhood trauma can be treated in a variety of ways, including psychosocial and pharmaceutical approaches. Psychosocial treatments can be directed at specific individuals, such as psychotherapy, or they can be directed at larger groups, such as school-wide interventions. While studies have indicated that a variety of treatments are beneficial in treating childhood trauma, trauma-focused cognitive behavioural therapy may be the most successful. In other trials, however, pharmacologic interventions have been proven to be less successful than psychosocial therapy in the treatment of childhood trauma. Finally, early intervention can help to mitigate the unfavorable health consequences of childhood trauma.
Effectiveness of Pharmaceuticals
Best-practice treatment recommendations advocate Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) as the psychological treatment of choice for PTSD. CBT aims to help patient’s better control their emotions by changing their ideas, beliefs, and attitudes. It's also designed to assist patients cope with trauma and improve their problem-solving abilities. Many studies show that CBT is beneficial for treating PTSD in terms of symptom reduction and diagnostic recovery as compared to pretreatment levels. Stigma, expense, location, and a lack of treatment availability are all associated therapeutic hurdles. Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) is a type of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) that is used to treat PTSD in children and adolescents. The principles of CBT are combined with traumasensitive techniques in this therapeutic methodology. Before enabling the child to process the trauma on their own in a safe area, it helps provide skills to cope with the symptoms of the trauma for both the child and the parent, if available.
Trauma-focused cognitive behavioural therapy has been demonstrated in studies (systematic reviews) to be one of the most effective therapies for reducing the negative psychological effects of childhood trauma, including PTSD. Therapists utilize Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDRT) to assist client’s process traumatic memories. The patient is asked to recall unpleasant experiences and employ bilateral stimulation like eye movements or finger tapping to help them regulate their emotions. When the patient has gotten desensitised to the memory and can recall it without having a negative reaction, the procedure is complete. A randomized controlled research found that EMDR reduced PTSD symptoms and was cost-effective in children who had experienced a single traumatic event. EMDR has also been demonstrated to be an effective treatment for PTSD in trials. Through a combination of cognitive behavioural and mindfulness strategies, Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) has been found to help prevent self-harm and improve interpersonal functioning by lowering experiencing avoidance and expressed rage. Abstract Story, Empty Story, Unstoried Emotion, Inchoate Story, Same Old Story, Competing Plotlines Story, Unexpected Outcome Story, and Discovery Story are eight client indicators identified by the Narrative-Emotion Process Coding System (NEPCS). In one-minute time segments taken from videotaped treatment sessions, each marker differs in the degree to which various narrative and emotion process markers are reflected. Enhanced narrative and emotional expression integration has previously been linked to recovery from complicated trauma. Most studies that test the effectiveness of employing pharmaceuticals (medications) for the treatment of childhood trauma focus specifically on treating PTSD. PTSD is only one of the health impacts that can result from childhood trauma.
SSRIs and other anti-depressants are commonly used to treat the symptoms of PTSD. Studies (systematic reviews) have shown that medications are less effective than psychosocial therapies in treating PTSD. However, medications have been shown to be effective when used in conjunction with another type of therapy, such as CBT for PTSD. A variety of physical and mental abuse, neglect, and household dysfunction are all examples of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs). ACEs have been related to early death as well as a variety of health problems, including mental illnesses. Toxic stress is associated to a multitude of neurological abnormalities in the structure and function of the brain, which have been linked to childhood maltreatment. The Adverse Childhood Experiences Study, published in 1998, was the first large-scale investigation into the link between ten types of childhood adversity and adult health consequences. Following that, researchers are beginning to find specific biomarkers linked to various types of ACEs. Long-term exposure to ACEs can lead to major health problems later in life, such as heart disease, stroke, and cancer." Adverse childhood experiences are equated to various pressures, and a significant adversity is referred to as a trauma. The World Health Organization (WHO) recognises that chronic stress in children can lead to the development of a variety of disorders later in life.
