Emotional Trauma can be closely linked to addictions and sometimes eating disorders, because people respond to emotional trauma in very unique ways. No two people are exactly alike in how they act, respond, and cope after a traumatic event. The effects of trauma can be obvious, or hidden from the victim and the family. There is one thing that we know for sure - trauma shows up in the body and revealed through the brain body emotion .
Research supports that trauma may manifest itself as addiction, eating disorder or other behaviors for coping with very painful experiences and emotions.
Examples of trauma :
Physical assault or witnessing violence
Emotional abuse and bullying
Sexual abuse and rape
Accidental deaths of a love one
Loss experiences, such as loss of a home or job
Natural disasters such as earthquakes and tornados
Events of war
Abandonment as a child
