   Childhood Trauma:  a working definition

“Trauma happens when any experience stuns us like a bolt out of the blue; it overwhelms us, leaving us altered and disconnected from our bodies.

 Any coping mechanisms we may have had are undermined and we feel utterly helpless and hopeless.  It is as if our legs are knocked out from under us.

…the younger the child, the more likely she is to be overwhelmed by common occurrences that might not affect an older child or adult”.

Peter A. Levine and Maggie Kline
