Trauma is an emotional response to a terrible event.
An event that could cause trauma could be something that has recently happened, or it could be an event that occurred years ago. Regardless of when the traumatic event happened, you could be feeling the effects of it today.
Agnes Wohl, LCSW, ACSW, is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Traumatologist, and Author who assists survivors in recovery from the profound effects that catastrophic events have had on a person’s physical, emotional, mental, spiritual, interpersonal relationships, and the self.

The Trauma of Sexual Abuse
It is only recently that our society has acknowledged the scope of this problem and has tried to understand the causes and effects it has on the victim and on society as a whole. It is an issue that stirs our most primitive instincts and evokes feelings of helplessness, rage and repulsion. Reflecting on one of the darkest sides of childhood experiences, the effects of this trauma reverberate throughout the life cycle of the individual and play out in the dynamics of the family for generations.
Keeping in line with the current thinking of Post Traumatic Growth, many survivors have chosen to focus on the resiliency and competency that has become a positive factor in their personalities.
Survivors of sexual abuse have faced and dealt with major struggles in their lives. While I do not in any way endorse physical, sexual, or emotional abuse of any sort, I have grown to admire and be inspired by the resilience and strength of the human spirit. Survivors of abuse can sometimes transform their pain into very positive changes in the self and my witnessing this for over 30 years is truly breathtaking.
