Trauma, in general, can be defined as a psychological, emotional response to an event or an experience that is greatly disturbing and distressing. When loosely applied, this trauma definition can refer to something upsetting, such as being involved in an accident, having an illness or injury, losing a loved one, or going through a divorce. Everyone processes a traumatic event differently because we all face them through the lens of earlier experiences in our lives. PRC Rehabilitation Center’s aim is to raise awareness on trauma.
A childhood trauma is the experience of an event by a child that is emotionally painful or distressful, which often results in lasting mental and physical effects. Childhood trauma can occur when a child witnesses or experiences overwhelming negative experiences in childhood. Many childhood experiences can overwhelm a child.

These include accidents, natural disasters, war and civil unrest, medical procedures or the sudden loss of a parent/caregiver.
