four-types-of-trauma

We all experience different types of trauma in our lives from time to time.

Trauma has no boundaries. However, different types of trauma events can cause a wide range of physical and emotional symptoms.
 
There are several types of trauma including:
 
Acute: A single, isolated event limited in time, such as being the victim of a crime, serious accident, or witnessing a violent event.
 
Chronic: Being exposed to multiple, ongoing events over an extended time such as abuse, domestic violence or war.
 
Complex: Occurs repeatedly and cumulatively, usually over a prolonged time within specific relationships.
 
System Induced: Being exposed to systems that are meant to help, like being removed from a home, foster care system or education system.
 
Studies have shown that stress signals can continue long after the trauma is over. This might affect your mind and body, including how you think, feel and behave. Trauma can affect your body as well as your mind, which can have a long-term impact on your physical health.
