"If You Brave Enough to Live It, the Least I Can Do Is Listen": Overcoming the Consequences of Complex Trauma
Hudson, Lucy; Beilke, Sarah; Many, Michele
ZERO TO THREE, v36 n5 p4-11 May 2016

As adults, their childhood histories manifest themselves in substance abuse, domestic violence, relational problems, risk-taking behaviors, emotional lability, self-harming, anxiety, and depression. To successfully overcome the worst of the disabilities associated with complex childhood trauma, the family support community must be able to distinguish the behavioral hallmarks--the symptoms--of complex trauma from the chronic underlying traumatic history that drives the parents' behavior.
