Giving A Trauma Survivor Advice Can Backfire

Sign in to follow this  


Years ago, a friend of mine knew a person who had been through trauma.  He told me that he wanted to give this individual some advice so this person could be helped and could learn how to cope.

I told him that could be a bad idea.  The thing is, if a trauma survivor has a lot of anger inside because of what happened to him/her and isn't on psychiatric medication that works well to help them, the therapy can actually make the anger worse.

Besides, my friend wasn't a trained psychotherapist anyway.
