If you have experienced or witnessed something drastic, the experience may cause problems in your daily functioning. Such traumatizing events can be isolated incidents, such as a car accident, robbery or rape, but also successive experiences, such as sexual abuse, physical violence or mental abuse. What these experiences do have in common is that you have been very scared and felt powerless and helpless. Even an event that took place long time ago, like in your childhood, can make you suffer now.
