Types of Trauma

  • Acute Trauma: This results from a single, distressing event, such as an accident, natural disaster, or violent attack. It typically involves intense fear and shock.
  • Acute Trauma: This results from a single, distressing event, such as an accident, natural disaster, or violent attack. It typically involves intense fear and shock.
  • Complex Trauma: This involves exposure to multiple traumatic events, often of an invasive, interpersonal nature. Examples include child abuse, neglect, and family violence. Complex trauma can disrupt development and affect an individual’s ability to form healthy relationships.
  • Developmental Trauma: This refers to exposure to adverse experiences during childhood, which can significantly impact a child’s development, emotional regulation, and attachment. Examples include abuse, neglect, and witnessing domestic violence.
  • Secondary or Vicarious Trauma: This affects individuals who are indirectly exposed to trauma, such as healthcare providers, therapists, and first responders who work with trauma survivors. The emotional burden of helping others can lead to symptoms similar to those of direct trauma.

Historical or Intergenerational Trauma: This affects communities and populations that have experienced collective trauma over generations, such as colonization, slavery, or genocide. The trauma can be transmitted across generations, affecting descendants’ mental and emotional health.
