The Centre for Trauma, Resilience and Growth

We provide a range of services including therapy, consultancy, training and research. The centre is a member of the  UK Trauma Group  (UKTG), an informal network of leads of UK Trauma Centres.

Effects of traumatic stress

The majority of people exposed to a serious traumatic event often find they will recover in time with few ill effects, although they often find that their attitude and outlook on life changes as a result of their experience - sometimes in a positive way in which they report that they feel they have benefited in some way through an enhanced appreciation of life, and the development of new values about what is important. However, some people may develop a range of problems in living; some may develop phobias, problems with social interaction and cut themselves off from family and friends. Other problems include depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress. There is hope, however, for those affected if they seek help sooner rather than later.
