Trauma can be a single event or a series of events that are repeated over time causing an individual to become overwhelmed with painful, frightening, or loathing emotions. The definition of psychological trauma includes experiences such as physical, sexual, and verbal abuse.

Trauma survivors may have experienced emotionally damaging childhood experiences in the form of an abusive parent or loved one. The negative impact of childhood psychological wounding can be deep and lasting.

Effects of trauma include the recurrence of feeling:

  • Alone
  • Anxious
  • Fearful
  • Worthless

Survivors often struggle with:

  • Relationships
  • Emotional challenges
  • Low self-esteem
  • Troubled memories
  • Addiction problems
