Introduction to survival strategies. Trauma Information pages

This paper introduces the concept of Survival Strategies. Survival Strategies are drives that facilitate the recognition, naming, and making sense of the varied sequelae of traumatic events.

The wide variety of fluctuating and often contradictory traumatic stress and fulfilment responses are different survival strategy manifestations at different points of their radiations . Their sense can be decoded by tracing them back along their axes to their  original contexts.

Survival strategies provide understanding of what was relived and avoided and why in PTSD and in comorbid illnesses following trauma.
