Trauma reaches into many domains of our personal and professional lives. Many experience trauma due to their childhood, relationships, adoption, or vocations.
Whatever brought you face to face with trauma—your past, an adoption, your marriage, your job, your family, or a significant life event such as war, earthquakes, or a car accident; there is hope: hope for healing and for growth. You don’t have to live in fear; you can learn to integrate and weave the trauma into your life so that you embrace and understand your trauma history of the history of a loved one.
These resources address the trauma perspective from an adoptive parent, as a professional navigating through vicarious trauma, as a person in relationship trying to make sense of the inherent challenges they are experiencing. While these resources are only a beginning, you can use them in your efforts to understand and move through your trauma experience or those of your loved ones.
