Trauma is commonplace.  It’s a by-product of living in today’s world.

We now know that war veterans and victims of abuse are not the only one’s who suffer symptoms of trauma.  It can be caused by seemingly benign, as well as extraordinary events.  Regardless, it’s important to know that it can be healed.
