Types of Trauma in Teen Girls
At Evangelhouse trauma treatment center for girls, we cater to all types of trauma and offer high-level sophisticated treatment options. You might have come across the term “big T and little T trauma.” This has to do with a child’s traumatic experiences and how they are perceived. “Big T” trauma has to do with a major trauma like experiencing a school shooting, a car accident where death was expected or occurred, or a similar major event. “Little T” trauma could refer to a more perceived trauma such as a divorce, being bullied in school, a move, or other life events that were significantly disruptive to the child.
Trauma can be classified as either acute, chronic, or complex. The effect of a single event is acute trauma. Chronic trauma is recurring and lasts a long time, such as domestic abuse or violence. Exposure to several and numerous traumatic situations, sometimes of an intrusive, interpersonal kind, is known as complex trauma. At our trauma treatment center for girls, we help treat each trauma type.
