UNRESOLVED TRAUMA - continues to have impact on people, families and communities until the trauma has been healed in people’s minds, bodies and spirits. Abused children who experience trauma while growing up learn how to protect themselves. This is healthy and unhealthy at the same time. It can be healthy because it helps the child get through childhood. It is unhealthy because when the child grows up to be an adult the very thing that allowed them to cope does not work anymore and starts to go against him/her. The person probably thinks he or she is not worth much, keeps blaming him/herself for the abuse, does not trust anyone and acts out the abuse in many ways. Acting out the abuse shows itself as: alcoholism, drug abuse, suicide, physical, emotional, mental, sexual, cultural and spiritual abuse, to name a few. These unhealthy life styles including life’s hurts, wounds, unresolved and undealt issues, shock and trauma move or passed on from one generation to the next. It is important to resolve life's hurts, wounds, shock and trauma.
