Trauma profoundly impacts an individual’s daily life and causes significant dysregulation in their nervous system, especially in times of distress. 70% of adults in the United States have experienced some form of trauma, which amounts to over 220 million individuals suffering from the effects of a traumatic event. With such a substantial amount of people having suffered from a traumatic event in their life, trauma and its’ effects have a profound impact on couples and families. Because of the complexity of trauma and the multitude of ways it impacts individuals, it often goes untreated, leading to significant disruptions in the lives of the suffering individual and their relationship.
