Relationship trauma test (15 Items)


Relationship trauma, also called Post-traumatic Relationship Syndrome (PTRS), is when your past relationship affects your current mental health negatively. It can occur due to abuse or betrayal.

Although relationship trauma can occur in any relationship, it’s commonly talked about in the context of intimate relationships.

The symptoms of relationship trauma occur after the end of an abusive relationship and are similar in many regards to the symptoms of PTSD. PTRS is essentially relationship-induced PTSD.
