Understanding Trauma

Events become traumatic when they threaten someone's sense of safety and security.  These stressful experiences have a significant impact on one's development, relationships, sense of self and worldview.  Whether it's a small 't' or capital 'T' trauma, it is important to understand the effect these life experiences have had on your mind and body.  Here are some links to better understand trauma:
