How can you help a dog that has been traumatized, get over it?
This really depends on what you mean. An abused dog needs a lot of patience and gentle care along with socialization slowly but surely with other dogs and people. One traumatized by an accident like a dog attack or hit by car will sometimes need to have reassuring care as well along with carefully resocialization with other dogs(if a dog attack).
