Trauma is a deeply personal experience that can have a profound impact on our lives. It can be caused by a wide range of events, such as physical, emotional, verbal, or sexual abuse, divorce, natural disasters, or death.

There are many different types of traumas, and they can manifest in a variety of ways. Some common symptoms of trauma include:

Changes in physical and emotional reactions, such as difficulty sleeping, trouble concentrating, or increased startle response
