Coping with Trauma: Moving Forward
Trauma is defined as an emotional response to a terrible event. People often think of trauma as a reaction to abuse, terrorism or a catastrophic event and that is correct. Yet it can also be a response to frequent arguing, loss of a job or a loved one. Any traumatic event can overwhelm your capacity to cope and influence your mental well-being.
