Effects of Trauma on Sense of Self
Traumatic events lead to a variety of responses, including disturbances of conscious sensations that range from intrusive thoughts and images to emotional numbing. This brief report focuses on phasic alterations of self-identity experiences, using two case examples from psychotherapy. The vignettes clarify contemporary theory about how posttraumatic growth in self-organization may occur.
