Complex Trauma

The Dynamics of Complex Trauma

Outreach Services Director, Paula Schoenberg

Intimate Partner Violence is associated with a range of trauma-related health and mental health issues. Research conducted over the past 30 years has consistently demonstrated that being victimized by an intimate partner increases one's risk for developing depression, PTSD, substance abuse and suicidality as well as a range of chronic health problems.

Support for individuals going through Intimate Partner Violence is crucial in the healing process. Reaching out to friends, family members, advocate and/or counselors who will be there to listen and support individuals will more likely heal faster than those who do not seek help.

Trauma survivors can have a meaningful, productive life with the help of advocates by using tools to stabilize their lives. The basic tools of stabilization are helping to set goals, asking what they want to accomplish and what changes they are willing and able to make in their lives.
