Complex trauma is caused by experiencing several traumatic events, often within the context of an interpersonal relationship, such as family violence. This can lead individuals to feel emotionally or physically trapped and overwhelmed.
Chronic trauma refers to the experience of being exposed to multiple, lengthy, and overwhelming traumatic events over a prolonged period. Various factors, such as a severe long-term illness, sexual abuse, domestic violence, bullying, or a predisposition to intense situations, can cause this. Trauma symptoms can persist in individuals for many years after the initial event.
War or combat
Witnessing abuse of a parent or household member
Acute trauma usually refers to an unexpected event that can happen in a person's life. The National Institute of Mental Health states that acute trauma is often associated with short-term post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). ASD symptoms occur immediately after a traumatic incident and typically last for three days to one month. If symptoms persist for over a month, the person may develop PTSD. Counseling for PTSD can help address these issues:
Life-threatening illness or diagnosis
Witnessing a natural disaster or accident
Developmental trauma refers to childhood trauma such as neglect, chronic abuse, or other harsh adversity in their homes. Developmental traumas are also known as adverse childhood experiences.
Neglect or abandonment
Losing a parent due to divorce
Witnessing domestic violence
Vicarious trauma, also referred to as secondary trauma, can arise when an individual is indirectly exposed to a traumatic event by closely interacting with someone who is directly affected by it.Find Your Therapist
“Always remember, if you have been diagnosed with PTSD, it is not a sign of weakness; rather, it is proof of your strength, because you have survived!” – Michel Templet
