According to the National Institute of Mental and Health(USA)defines childhood trauma as the experiences of an event by a child that is emotionally painfull or distressfull,which often results in lasting mental and physical effects.
The following are types of traumas ;
1.Acute trauma-this type of trauma results from single stressfull and dangerous events.e.g witnessing a gruesome accident or someone being murdered in your presence.
2.Chronic trauma-these are the repeated and prolonged exposure to highly stressfull events.e.g.child abuse,domestic violence or bullying in school.
3.Complex trauma-this entails exposurs to multiple traumatic events.
A study published in 2015 showed that those adults who may have experienced childhood traumas had a risk of developing health issues but the brain is ever changing and recovery is possible.
To be able to acknowledge your childhood traumas is one of the first ways towards healing.
