What is Processing trauma worksheet about?

This worksheet is about processing trauma. After experiencing trauma your thoughts change, and the way you used to see the world and think about it, all changes instantly.  You give and assign new meaning to the same old things, all of which are explicitly evident in our behaviors and emotions. Hence, after any traumatic event, it is very important that the event be analyzed and processed to see what changes in the thoughts have taken place. 

How will the Processing trauma worksheet help?

This worksheet will help you to process your thoughts by writing and getting them out of your head, because explaining and giving words to the thoughts can be difficult but when it comes to writing them down it is a lot easier and when you will read it, it makes a lot of sense to help you organize the thoughts.
