Essential information for patient and family
- Traumatic events often have psychological effects. For the majority, symptoms subside with no intervention. (see Psychological responses to traumatic stress: what to expect)
- Once symptoms have continued for over a month, treatment can be effective.
- The patient needs support and understanding, not to be told to ‘snap out of it’.
