What is Repetitive Trauma?

Repetitive trauma is a type of trauma that occurs when an individual is exposed to a traumatic event over and over again. This type of trauma can be particularly damaging, as it can lead to an individual feeling helpless, hopeless, and overwhelmed. Examples of this type of trauma include living in an environment of constant conflict or being exposed to chronic physical or emotional abuse.

How are Complex PTSD and Trauma Different?

Complex PTSD, also known as Complex Trauma, is a type of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) that occurs when a person is exposed to repeated traumatic events over an extended time. This could be a single event that is repeated multiple times, or a series of different events that have a cumulative effect. Examples of situations that may lead to Complex PTSD include child abuse, living in a war zone, or being part of a cult. People with Complex PTSD may also experience a wide range of physical and emotional health issues, including depression, anxiety, and difficulty forming relationships.
