Support for Trauma and Grief

The horrendous massacre at the Virginia Tech sure had the whole world reaching out in support to the students and faculty of the university. //An incident unbelievable, the shooting had aftermaths throughout the world. Every reached out with deep sympathy and anguish for the family of the people who died at the university.

It is very difficult for the surviving students and teachers to come to term with the whole incident. It will sure take its time for the loss and grief to heal. It is very painful to experience. There will be a sense of anger, guilt at their own survival, deep sense of loss of the love one. There is an immense disturbance in ones own life.

All these feelings are quite normal according to Psychologists. Different people undergo these traumas differently and for different period of time. The kind of support that we get from society family friends etc all help to deal with grief in a different way.

But as they say Time heals everything. The grief and trauma over time will be replaced with positive memories.

Many students in the wake of the tragedy have left the university to be with family and friends. This is a very positive step, as it would help heal the wound much faster and better in a safer environment.

These kinds of a crisis often have a positive outcome too. Known as the ‘post traumatic growth’ many people learn to appreciate life much better after a tragedy. They learn to draw source for spiritual strength from it.

In order to recover from it a surrounding of safety and security is needed. Man organizations are extending support to the students there. The National Child Traumatic Stress Network (NCTSN) is also providing help and support through clinical providers and trained educators. Mental Health Counselors too have been helping the families of the deceased to cope with the situation.

According to psychiatrist James Griffith of George Washington University “Sharing their experiences with others who also lived through it is part of psychological first aid. As awful as it is, human beings are well-built to get through tragedy to recover”.
