Abstract :

Trauma is often the result of an overwhelming amount of stress that exceeds one's ability to cope, or integrate the emotions involved with that experience. A trauma is an intense event. This can include medical events, such as a heart attack, surgery or treatment in a hospital's intensive care unit (ICU). PTSD can happen in any age. PTSD can cause nightmares, upsetting memories, flashback, feeling numb, fear, worry, anxiety, and other symptoms. Patient and family education is an important part of nursing care. Different techniques are used for coping after trauma. These techniques are: Role playing; assertiveness training; stress management; meditation; exercise; biofeedback and yoga. The poster will present different ways of treatment for coping after trauma without any medication.
