Motor Vehicle Accident (MVA)
For obvious reasons, motor vehicle accidents vary as of their psychological impact.
In cases of significant body injuries, psychological symptoms are usually also obvious. But many MVA victims of seemingly light accidents develop symptoms that affect them. It would frequently be some or more from this list: fear of driving, problems with sleeping, anxiety, depressive thoughts, anger, frustration, or difficulties in interpersonal relations.
A short course of psychotherapy may be sufficient to resolve these issues when applied within a few weeks after the accident.
If these symptoms are left unresolved, they may have an adverse influence on various aspects of one’s life and may create complications more challenging to resolve later on.
