    Types of Trauma

    Trauma can be broken down into 3 different types

    Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

    Also known as PTSD

    PTSD is an anxiety disorder that is caused when a person has been exposed to a disturbing or traumatic event. The onset of PTSD can be experienced immediately after the event or sometimes months or years later. It can affect those who have been involved or witnessed the event, or those who attend to these events because of their profession such as emergency workers, law enforcement and military personnel.

    Complex Trauma

    Also known as CPTSD

    Complex trauma is caused by repetitive events in a person’s life often because of being exposed to environments where they have been subject to abuse, bullying or violence. There are a wide range of effects of this kind of exposure and CPTSD can be caused both in childhood and adult life.

    Developmental Trauma

    Also known as DTD

    This disorder is formed during the early years of a child’s life because of abuse and neglect. It often can result in interference with the child’s neurological and cognitive development. Later in life can result in the child struggling to form attachments and leave them with lasting psychological harm.
