Childhood Trauma / Complex PTSD

What is Complex Trauma?

Complex trauma can arise in any situation where you feel an ongoing sense of fear, horror, helplessness, or powerlessness over an extended period of time, with the perceived or actual inability to escape.

It usually stems from trauma you experienced in childhood, though it can develop from trauma in adulthood as well.

Some possible causes of complex trauma include:

  • Sexual abuse or incest
  • Ongoing physical or emotional abuse
  • Chronic neglect or abandonment
  • Enmeshment or engulfment trauma
  • Parentification (children taking on adult rules)
  • Human trafficking
  • Genocide campaigns
  • Living in a war zone or area of civil unrest
