Trauma is defined as experiencing an extremely distressing event leading to psychological and many times physical symptoms. What is traumatic for some --perhaps a car accident or experiencing being yelled at by a manager--may not be traumatic for others.
C-PTSD is complex, or ongoing reexperienced trauma over time. A good example of C-PTSD is childhood abuse. Many times when a family has an ongoing dysfunctional pattern such as yelling, physical or sexual abuse, or ongoing tactics to gain control over a child or adult, C-PTSD is the result.
