One of the dilemmas of trauma is that the victim does not acknowledge it. To carry on in life, the victim makes such excuses as “other people have it worse”, “it could be worse”, or “if I had been stronger”. It requires a good assessment to find the hidden traumas in a person’s life and to discover its effects.
Various conditions are manifestations of trauma:
- Eating disorders
- Post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Excessive guilt
- Uncontrollable anger
- Feelings of loneliness
