The term ‘Complex Trauma’ describes both children’s exposure to multiple traumatic events - often of an invasive or interpersonal nature - and the wide ranging long-term impact of this exposure.
These events are severe and pervasive, such as abuse or profound neglect. They usually begin early in life and can disrupt many aspects of the child’s development and the very formation of a self. Since they often occur in the context of the child’s relationship with a caregiver, they interfere with the child’s ability to form a secure attachment bond. Many aspects of a child’s healthy physical and mental development rely on this primary source of safety and stability.
