What Is Trauma?

Trauma can be defined as anything that results from experiences that overwhelm an individual’s capacity to cope such as abuse and neglect, family conflict, poverty, sexualized violence, having a life-threatening illness, undergoing repeated and/or painful medical interventions, accidents, witnessing acts of violence, experiencing war, intergenerational events and grief and loss.
