Trauma is a person’s emotional response to a distressing event. These events are often sudden, unpredictable, involve a serious threat to life and feel beyond a person’s control (apa.org).
Traumatic experiences can ignite strong emotional and physical reactions that can last well after the triggering event has ended (nctsn.org)
