The True Face of Trauma: Understanding and supporting adversity and trauma

Most people will experience adversity at some stage throughout their life.  When adverse events overwhelm our ability to cope, we describe this experience as trauma. Both trauma and adversity are very common, and can significantly impact an individual’s mental and physical health, relationships and identity.
