The TRE for Victims of Crime
Victims of crime will have different reactions and we can never know how we may react unless crime has affected us. What effect it has depends on:
- The type of crime
- Whether or not the you know the person who committed the crime
- Whether or not you get support from those around you
Although reactions may be severe in the short term, crimes such as burglary, rape or violence can leave victims scarred emotionally and psychologically. Feelings of stress, sleeplessness and anxiety leading to illness are common as one feels powerless and vulnerable. PTSD can develop as victims struggle to cope with their experience.
The TRE can help to release the symptoms of stress and anxiety leaving on better able to cope.
