When a person is exposed to a traumatic or stressful event, how they experience it greatly influences the long-lasting adverse effects of carrying the weight of the traumatic event(s). Trauma involves exposure to a deeply distressing experience, such as death, serious injury, or violence. This can occur either through directly experiencing the traumatic event or witnessing it happen to others. Traumatic experiences can have a lasting impact on a person’s physical, emotional, and social well-being. Several types of trauma disorders can develop as experience because of distressing experience. Some of the most common trauma disorders include:
- Acute stress disorder
- Adjustment disorder
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (C-PTSD)
- Reactive attachment disorder (RAD)
