Psychologicaal Services for People Affected by Motor Vehicle Accident MVA
Motor Vehicle Accidents vary as of their psychological impact, depending on overall circumstances and the effect they have on the involved lives over time. From recovering from minor traumatic experiences to complex adaptations in cases of brain injuries or irreversible body injuries, and many levels of challenges in-between, mind and body need to be attended as a whole for best healing results.
Some of the injured try to focus on physical rehabilitation first, but without improvement in emotional well-being and supportive perspective on things, body’s healing abilities are hindered.
Moreover, as almost everybody affected by MVA has to deal with some pain or discomfort, it is noteworthy that the perceived level of pain can be reduced or eliminated through psychotherapy.
We recommend contacting our clinic early in your healing process for best results in recovery. We will take care of submitting forms to your insurer and obtaining pre-approvals for services to be provided to you.
It is common in cases of minor accidents that the involved would try to ignore symptoms like fear of driving, problems with sleeping, anxiety, lower energy levels, or more often occurring thoughts of one’s mortality, more pessimistic outlook, anger, frustration, or more difficulties in interpersonal relations. Usually, if such changes are attended early, a short course of psychotherapy can improve natural functioning, lessening the psychological impact of the accident and helping overall recovery. Unfortunately, if these symptoms of unprocessed traumatic events persist, they have an adverse influence on various aspects of one’s life and may create complications much more challenging to resolve later on and requiring much longer therapy.
