Trauma Processing & Recovery

What Is Trauma? What are the most common causes of trauma?
Can you notice the signs of trauma?

Exposure to trauma can have a lasting impact. Events that happened long ago may continue to affect our current functioning, well-being, and quality of life. The term "trauma" often refers to situations or events that individuals have experienced in which significant danger, loss of control, helplessness, and distress were present. Typical examples of these events include car accidents, sudden loss, exposure to violence whether as a victim or witness, relationship betrayal, or physical or sexual abuse.

Psychological trauma can also occur as a result of childhood neglect, prolonged exposure to unstable and unsupportive living environments and caretakers, and continued unmet needs. Unresolved trauma can continue to impact present living, even if the source of trauma happened long ago.
