Post trauma some people go onto to develop certain worldviews including the following:

1. The world is very dangerous.

2. I have no control over situations.

3. I am responsible for what has happened.

Cognitive Therapy aims to modify cognitive distortions arising post trauma thereby reducing the intensity of the associated emotional reaction. It is important that such cognitive distortions are challenged quickly and the victim’s pre-trauma view of the world promoted.
