In the United States 61 percent of men and 51 percent of women report exposure to at least one traumatic event. Additionally, 90 percent of clients in behavioral health care have experienced trauma.
Unprocessed trauma can develop into a variety of mental, emotional, and physical problems. This trauma can be pushed under and buried to a point that many don’t readily recognize how it is affecting their lives.
