If Trauma’s A Natural Part Of The Human Condition, How Can We Help Each Other?

“I step toward the topic of trauma intermittently; then, I step away. And even as resilient survivors and professionals know that not every survivor of trauma develops prolonged problems, and that not everything we commonly call “stress” is, in fact, trauma, to pretend that natural disasters, mass violence, accidents and other traumatic experiences, such as sexual assault, don’t take a toll on coping is, at least, unkind and – at worst – perilous.”
