Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
"Move on" is, of course, the goal. All agree.
However, the framework, the wording of the injury itself, creates a bias.
The clients, their families, and others are impacted by this bias.
They are led toward believing/hoping this injury will recede quickly - become just a memory.
There is nothing past about it though.
It can flare with an intensity that temporarily cripples a person.
Expectations must be realistic.
Learning how this impacts each separate individual is imperative.
Each incident triggers disappointment.
Guilt, blame, sadness, denial will all make a visit to the individual and those connected to that individual.
Understanding this dynamic allows one's mind to keep things in perspective, while this emotional cycle is occurring.
