Trauma survivors have symptoms of the trauma in their behaviours and thoughts, these are not their personality or character but are echoes of trauma. Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder is mostly seen in those whose trauma occurred in childhood. When children go through prolonged trauma the brain is still developing and it interrupts the natural course of their psychological and neurological development. Trauma can be caused by ongoing emotional neglect or psychological abuse (it does not have to be a major catastrophic event).

Some symptoms of trauma are:

Depression

Irritability

Numbing

Loss of interest

Decreased concentration

Chronic pain

Headaches

Hopelessness

Shame and Worthlessness

Substance Abuse

Eating Disorders

Nightmares

Flashbacks

Hypervigilance

Mistrust

Feeling Unreal or Out of Body

Generalised Anxiety

Panic Attacks

Emotional Overwhelm
