I recently got a referral to a social worker who specializes in "Trauma Sequelae"?

Has anyone heard of Trauma Sequelae? Some of the mods who are therapists maybe?

Jason,

Trauma sequelae refers to the fact that someone exposed to a traumatic event or series of events (sexual abuse, mugging, rape, plane crash, etc.) may develop secondary psychological problems (sequelae) as a result of those events. For example: nightmares, flashbacks, PTSD, eating disorders, and all the negative feelings about oneself that can arise.

Jason, a specialist in trauma sequelae might see you at 10:00, and then a guy who has been in a bad car crash at 11:00. His specialization is this problem of secondary trauma, not CSA in particular.

Much love,
Larry

O.K,

I found this link.

Sounds like a specialist field in results of trauma whether mental or physical, a bit like an occupational therapist.

Go along with it, at least they will be able to point you in the right direction,

I called the number and they answered the phone "Medical Emergency Treatment". I have searched and found that M.E.T is located at the same address so I know I didn't dial it wrong.

From all of the searching I've been doing, it seems like this is more for say the immediate after effects of trauma, like say I had just been raped or victim of domestic violence. In additon I found that it is also a workmans compensation facility and it seems like its a walk in clinic with a social worker. I don't know what it is, but it just doesn't feel right.

My previous post was probably me just trying to sabtoge myself with anything that might help. The least I can do is call and talk to them and see what happens.

Always carry it thru, if they cannot help they can point you to someone who can, but at the end of the day, they know trauma present and past,

Sounds like whoever made the referal is using 'buzz words'!, i.e. whatever is 'trendy' in their profession!

Why don't they just use language that people understand? It doesn't make them look clever, although that's what they think!

If I'd had too many glasses of wine and tried to come up with something in a foreign language to describe 'sequential trauma', maybe I would have said 'Trauma Sequelae'.

If anyone uses language that you don't understand, ask them to explain what they mean.

Best wishes ..Rik

Rik,

I laughed and laughed when I saw this comment from you:

Well put! The Latin phrase just means, literally, "the trauma of things that come after", so in plain English, "secondary trauma". ;\)

Per ultum motum,
