The National Trauma Institute study shows that people who have experienced trauma are 4 times as likely to develop an addiction to alcohol and 3 times as likely to experience depression.
Trauma can be divided into “big T ” trauma (such as physical, sexual or experiential), or “small T” trauma, which is typically related to experiences during child development.
These are generally not connected to PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), and instead their effects can be nearly educational in practice. However, they may negatively influence a person’s life over the course of many years and may lead to lacking self-esteem and coping skills, which is harmful to overall health and well-being.
