Had to wait or been put on extended hold, to get results of a critical medical test? Been given medical test results in a way that made you feel worse? Been given a wrong medical diagnosis or wrong meds or stayed sick a long time because your health care person didn’t listen? Felt like you were only a combination of symptoms that needed to be figured out?
Trauma occurs when an actual or perceived threat of danger or loss overwhelms a person’s usual coping ability. (From Beverly James, 1994) How long does the overwhelm have to last for a traumatic memory to be recorded? How does someone identify an area of low coping ability?

Every major diagnostic category in the DSM- IV can sometimes be related to trauma. PTSD, Dissociative Disorders, Borderline Personality Disorder, Depression and Anxiety may be better classified as trauma-spectrum disorders. – Douglas Bremner Any client unwanted behavioral viewed through the lens of trauma reveals that the behavior is usually a means of coping with the symptoms of trauma
Often have their own traumatic histories Seek to avoid re-experiencing their own emotions Respond personally to others’ emotional states Perceive behavior as personal threat or provocation rather than as re-enactment Perceive client’s simultaneous need for and fear of closeness as a trigger of their own loss, rejection, and anger
Staff care and growth is of primary importance ◦ Everyone, especially those who hear traumatic stories every day, must resolve the impact of their own trauma first ◦ Healthy opportunities in the workplace ◦ All employees need to be trauma-informed ◦ Effective help must be available for clients to prevent burn-out and compassion fatigue ◦ Rituals and appreciation
