Treating the 'hidden' symptoms of trauma through Psychological Rehabilitation
Long after an individual has physically recovered from a traumatic incident, such as a car accident, they may still be suffering from the psychological effects. As many of the psychological issues that arise following an injury might not be immediately obvious, it can often take weeks or months for problems such as anxiety or depression to develop. Some symptoms aren’t easily identifiable, which means the individual may not be entirely aware of the severity of their mental health issue.
In these circumstances, it’s important that the person affected receives further treatment to help them achieve optimum recovery. We’ve decided to take a deeper look into Psychological Rehabilitation, its benefits and why it’s so important following an accident.
What is Psychological Rehabilitation?
Psychological Rehabilitation is suitable for clients who are suffering from mental health issues following a traumatic incident. Speed Medical offers a comprehensive Psychological Rehabilitation service, which includes:
- CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) - a popular form of talking therapy proven to help both mental and physical health problems
- EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing) - a psychotherapy treatment used to relieve distress associated with traumatic memories
- Counselling - a talking therapy that involves a trained therapist listening to the individual and helping them find ways to deal with emotional issues
- Neuropsychological assessment - traditionally used to assess the extent of impairment to a particular skill and identify which area of the brain may have been damaged following an injury
What are the benefits of Psychological Rehabilitation?
As the primary aim of rehabilitation is to regain pre-injury status as much as possible, early Psychological Rehabilitation, alongside Physical Rehabilitation, is often the best way to ensure the quickest physical and psychological recovery, irrespective of the severity of an individual’s injuries.
Whatever the outcome of the medical report, be it physical injuries or Psychological Rehabilitation, we can undertake the appropriate treatment to help your client achieve optimal recovery. This could be through helping them come to terms with their injuries or potential changes to their way of life, or it could be a major step in overcoming the trauma associated with an accident.
