Trauma areas explained...
Responses to childhood and adulthood sexual violence are complex and highly individualised. Some survivors experience severe and chronic psychological symptoms, whereas others experience little or no distress. The wide range of consequences may be attributed to assault characteristics, environmental conditions, survivor attributes, and availability of social support and resources.
When we experience trauma at the hands of someone we love and trust, it often impacts us profoundly and in many areas of our lives. Domestic violence involves a pattern of coercive and controlling behaviour that your partner uses against you to obtain power and control over you and your life.
Relational trauma is the experience of repeated neglect, abuse, bullying, or other types of behavior that causes lasting psychological harm. In most cases, it is usually perpetrated by a family member or close relatives and the repercussions are very serious, causing long-term trauma and distress.
