Up to 50% of people experience a trauma at some point in their lives.
Some people experience brief periods of shock, or longer periods of 'adjustment'. Others may develop Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
Most people try to avoid the issues, triggers, and memories related to trauma.
However, avoiding can increase the symptoms.
A good understanding of traumas is essential to recovery.
“There are wounds that never show on the body that are deeper and more hurtful than anything that bleeds.”
