The longer we live, the more inevitable it is that we will experience trauma. Trauma is the response to a deeply distressing or disturbing event that overwhelms our nervous system and can cause feelings of helplessness, diminishes our sense of self and our ability to feel the full range of emotions and experiences. When a person turns to something or someone other than their partner for intimate connection, their partner may experience betrayal trauma. War veterans may experience Post Traumatic Stress Disorder or PTSD. Children who have experienced abuse may also have PTSD symptoms. Anyone who has experienced any type of trauma may have PTSD effects, the severity may differ, but the effects and treatment are the same.
