Trauma*(def.) - 1. any physical damage to the body caused by violence or accident or fracture etc. Synonyms: harm, hurt, injury.  |  2. an emotional wound or shock often having long-lasting effects.  *Webster's Dictionary

A definition, or simple words on a page, can only BEGIN to capture and define trauma for a person who has experienced it.  Our experience and work within the realm of mental/emotional health has taught us that trauma and/or a need for mental/emotional support shows up differently for everyone.
