Trauma can be defined as an experience of overwhelm and powerlessness without adequate support. We have all experienced trauma at some point in our lives - whether it was during childhood or later, as a result of a single incident such as a car accident, a sudden tragic loss, a natural disaster or an event like 911. Trauma can have long lasting effects, shattering a person’s trust and ability to reach out for connection, producing a constant state of hypervigilance or emotional numbing and avoidance, resulting in a sense of disconnection from yourself. What’s important to know is that with appropriate support, you can overcome and heal traumatic experiences.
