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

             “Nowhere to Hide” series links

Each separate, individual article in the series focuses on a single component of the workings of developmental trauma, via real life examples in short “60 second” soundbites, akin to “Public Service Announcements” (PSAs).  They are designed for sharing in social media networks to grow public awareness.

Trigger warning: 

the children’s experiences in the vignettes are unvarnished.  Their traumatic responses may trigger painful memories.
