Trauma & PTSD

By the age of 16, 2/3 of children will have reported at least 1 traumatic event that they have experienced. Trauma among children occurs more often than you think and can be caused by a variety of different situations. 

Examples of childhood trauma

  • Community or school violence

  • Pandemics

  • Physical, verbal, or sexual abuse

  • Witnessing or experiencing domestic violence 

  • Terrorism or natural disasters

  • Loss of a loved one

  • Physical or sexual assault

  • Neglect

  • Serious accidents

  • Medical trauma

  • Refugee trauma 

  • Bullying


Signs and symptoms of trauma can vary greatly from age group to age group. The Center for Child Trauma Assessment, Services, and Interventions has created a graphic available below to provide better understanding for parents and caregivers.
