The Complexity of PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder): CHILDHOOD TRAUMA (Find out more on
Childhood trauma in itself can vary greatly depending on the intensity, duration and support or lack of support when we go through neglect, abuse, misattunement and relational/attachment trauma. What makes childhood trauma so pervasive is that it affects the developing nervous system and sense of self at such a primary level.
DEVELOPMENTAL ATTACHMENT TRAUMA
When we hear the word trauma we invariably think of something quite severe. Perhaps an accident, rape, physical abuse or attacks, natural disasters or combat situations.
Even though the physiological and psychological mechanisms are the same for either shock-trauma or developmental trauma – there is a whole range of subtle differences when looking at developmental trauma.
The field of developmental trauma is really vast. When we think of developmental trauma we most likely identify with traumatic incidents or prolonged abuse and neglect.
We do not consider developmental attachment bonds and how they impact and attract furthering traumatic experiences and partners in life. Find out more:

Why We Need to Address Trauma
Trauma is pervasive in our current society. It is also severely stigmatized and marginalized; as if we don’t want to look at it and be confronted with it. It is the silent epidemic running havoc in our lives and affecting our health on all levels; mentally, emotionally and physically.
We seem to want to recognize trauma, and only to some degree, for those who have gone to war or are in high-risk professions but the bulk of occurring trauma happens much closer to us. What runs rampant and are much more common traumas are:
CHILDHOOD TRAUMA, ABUSE AND NEGLECT (not being wanted, incessant comparing, verbal psychological abuse and bullying, divorcing parents, growing up with alcoholic or depressed parents)
SEXUAL ABUSE (nearly 1 in 5 women in the US)
DOMESTIC VIOLENCE AND ABUSE (both in childhood and adulthood)
LOSS AND ABANDONMENT(death of son, daughter, brother, sister, dad or mom)
POST-TRAUMATIC STRESS AFTER SURGERY OR LIFE-THREATENING DISEASE
POST-TRAUMATIC STRESS AFTER ACCIDENTS (especially car-accidents)
We want to give you the tools to rebound after trauma and lead fulfilling lives. Post-Traumatic Stress doesn’t have to be a life-sentence; it can be resolved!
Will I ever be free from my Trauma or PTSD(Post Traumatic Stress Disorder)?
When suffering the effects of Post-traumatic Stress, this question is most likely to come from a sense of despair. Being in a hyper-arousal and/or static state is a nauseating predicament to be in, which can easily lend itself to the belief that it will never change.
It is important to learn and to see that thoughts of despair and disbelief are part of the emotional state one is in. This understanding can help bring about correct perspective and remove the emphasis on giving too much importance to these thoughts – preventing further sinking into a state of depression.
Trauma and PTSD, in most cases, is not caused by a solitary incident.
