Psychological Trauma

Psychological trauma is a condition in which a traumatic event or situation overwhelms an individual's ability to cope with it, and leaves that person with death and destruction. The individual may feel emotionally and physically overwhelmed. The circumstances of the event commonly includes, betrayal of trust, abuse, entrapment, pain, confusion, and/or loss. It may happen because of one-time incidents like crime, accidents, natural disasters, deaths or because of repetitive experiences such as child abuse, combat, concentration camps, battering relationships, and enduring deprivation.
