Definition of Trauma

Why this resource is helpful:

Quoted From:

"Trauma is in an event that overwhelms the central nervous system and changes the way you remember and react. It"s something that happens to your central nervous system and to your mind and makes you incapable of assimilating or integrating the experience into your life.
Most people associate PTSD with some kind of single episode that was overwhelming and life threatening. Such overwhelmingly stressful events include being the victim of an assault or kidnapping, or surviving an immediately life threatening event such as a hurricane, motor vehicle accident or being exposed to war or genocide. Even hospital related trauma such as a pregnancy/birth trauma or surgical trauma can result in post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)."
