TRAUMA

Trauma is an event involving an “exposure to actual or threatened death, serious injury or sexual violence…” (American Psychiatric Association). Experiencing a traumatic event directly or indirectly (witnessing the event) can lead to feelings of extreme fear and loss of hope. Brain development, sensory processing, social emotional skills, and activities of daily living are some of the areas that can be impacted for someone who has experienced trauma.
