Interpersonal Trauma refers to a traumatic response caused by any interaction between people that is hostile, abusive, aggressive, or violent in nature.
Although each individual’s response to trauma is unique, symptoms may include, but are not limited to: flashbacks, nightmares, physical/emotional numbness, depression or thoughts of suicide, avoiding people or places, being easily startled and on edge, dangerous behavior/self abuse, poor concentration, insomnia or fatigue, fear or anxiety, denial, lack of esteem/trust/intimacy, chronic alcohol or drug use, promiscuity/lack of desire, and feelings of guilt, anger, or shame.
The above symptoms are normal responses to traumatic events but if left unchecked can be very unhealthy and detrimental to living a purposeful life.
