The human brain instinctively seeks to categorise each experience we encounter, including traumatic events. Picture the brain as an intricate filing system, where every piece of information must be properly sorted and stored. Discussing our experiences enables the brain to systematically organise what transpired, facilitating efficient processing and storage in the appropriate memory centres. While suppressing or numbing ourselves to these events might provide temporary relief, unprocessed experiences eventually lead to mental clutter and resistance. This can result in Police Complex Spiral Trauma (an accumulation of trauma) and post-traumatic stress injuries.
