In somatic flashbacks the survivor feels sensations, pain and discomfort in areas of the body, affected by the trauma. This pain/sensation cannot be explained by any other health issues and are triggered by something that creates the body to “feel” the trauma again. A flashback is reexperiencing a previous traumatic experience as if it were actually happening in that moment. It includes reactions that often resemble the client’s reactions during the trauma. Flashback experiences are very brief and typically last only a few seconds, but the emotional aftereffects linger for hours or longer. Flashbacks are commonly initiated by a trigger, but not necessarily. Sometimes, they occur out of the blue. Other times, specific physical states increase a person’s vulnerability to re-experiencing a trauma, (e.g., fatigue, high stress levels).
