Resources for Childhood Sexual Trauma Survivors, Complex PTSD and Cannabis Therapy
Category: Developmental Trauma
Trauma experienced in childhood can prime a person for development of Complex Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder later in life. I found the study of developmental psychology extremely helpful for understanding the deeper effects of my CPTSD. Reading about it helped me in surprising ways. My work has led me to look at childhood and its foundation for development of emotional, relational, self-regulatory and self-image imprints into adulthood in a clearer, less emotional way. It helped me detach a bit from experiencing my pain, to understanding it.
