Complex trauma, sometimes referred to as C-PTSD, is when a person experiences prolonged exposure to multiple traumatic events. These experiences are often interpersonal (within an attachment relationship or connection) and occur over an extended period of time. This is why it’s often called “developmental” trauma.  Complex trauma can also be a system of power abuse.
Examples of complex trauma:
  • child abuse and neglect
  • Domestic violence
  • Human trafficking
  • War or political conflict
Complex trauma can have a significant and long lasting impact on an individual’s emotional, mental and physical health and well-being. It can affect the way a person thinks, feels and behaves. It can affect their ability to have relationships and to function in daily life.
