WHAT IS TRAUMA?
(IT MAY BE DIFFERENT THAN YOU THINK)
The word "trauma" is defined by the dictionary as “a deeply distressing or disturbing experience". Many view trauma as experiencing a life-threatening like war or a horrific accident. While those examples are true, the term "trauma" can also be used to describe what happens each time a person is hurt, betrayed, or humiliated. Trauma can happen whenever one faces a situation which feels devastating and one lacks the support to fully overcome or recover.
