According to the Center for Addiction and Mental Health trauma is the lasting emotional response that often results from living through a distressing event . Experiencing a traumatic event can harm a person's sense of safety, sense of self, and ability to regulate emotions and navigate relationships. Trauma is based on ones perception.
Symptoms where past trauma is unresolved:
Re-Experiencing the traumatic event
Avoiding anything that might trigger a memory of the event
Changes in mood and cognitive ability
Reactivity or arousal around sensory experiences
