Trauma can be caused by any negative, life-threatening experience. People can be traumatized by other people, accidents, illnesses, natural disasters, political unrest, and the like. Childhood trauma is especially damaging because the minds of young children are highly impressionable.
Since young children spend most of their time with their parents, most people have been traumatized by their parents in some way. The effects of childhood trauma last well into adulthood and, if not properly managed, can cause significant problems in all life areas.
