The four types of trauma

Acute

Chronic

Complex

Historical/Transgenerational

You may think of trauma as an earthquake, terrorism or an assault. It is all these things but it is also any event, or series of events, that overwhelms a person’s capacity to cope with a long-lasting impact on that person.

 

You might wonder, what does this mean for me?

In our current world where Covid-19, human rights movements and constant stressors exist, treating Trauma, whatever its type, is no longer specialised, but it is for everyone!

 

Apart from signaling that you are interested in a humane and thoughtful approach:

 

  • It makes for happier co-workers

  • Less absenteeism

  • Progressive agenda in line with important shifts in world values

  • Meaningful empowerment of clients and staff
