Trauma is often weaved in and through the fabric of our lives. Many think of trauma as one large scale traumatic event. However complex trauma is not a single event. It could be a failed attachment to our care takers, experiencing abuse/neglect, chronic multiple disturbing events in childhood or adulthood, and the inability to protect ourselves emotionally with healthy boundaries. The most disturbing part of a trauma is not the event itself but how we perceived the event and the internalized negative core beliefs about ourselves that developed.
