Healing and Recovery across the lifespan

In your early childhood or adolescent years –  separation from care givers, abuse or neglect can each play a part in your life and relationships as an adult.  Impacts on family life and on children’s and young people’s development include:

Exposure to alcohol or substance abuse of a parent or older sibling

Exposure to family violence

Physical abuse

Sexual abuse and other unwanted sexual behaviour

As an adult, trauma experiences may result from a single event,  or many events.

Traumatic events may be natural such as natural disasters, floods, cyclone and so on. Or trauma can occur by human actions. 

Trauma may also be transmitted across generations.
