Trauma and PTSD may be acquired in a myriad of different ways and are not confined to sudden, dramatic events. Wounds may develop over time; and often those who have survived one or more traumatic events do not fully realize the cumulative impact on their lives and relationships. PTSD has been described as a normal response to abnormal and damaging life events – often inflicted by other human beings.
