Childhood trauma refers to an event experienced by a child that evokes fear and is often violent, dangerous, or life-threatening. It can have lasting effects on a child’s mental and physical wellbeing.

Types of Traumas:

Physical or Sexual Abuse: These experiences can be traumatic for children.

One Time Events: Car accidents, natural disasters like hurricanes, loss of a loved one, or major medical incidents can also take a psychological toll on children.

Ongoing Stress: Living in a dangerous neighborhood or being a target of bullying, even if it feels like daily life to adults, can be traumatic for a child.

Witnessing Trauma: Watching a loved one endure a major health issue or exposure to violent media can also be extremely traumatic for children.

Effects of Childhood Trauma:

Long Term Impact: Childhood trauma can have lifelong effects. As children’s brains develop, their experiences shape their perception of safety and influence their adult personality.
