WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ACUTE AND CHRONIC TRAUMA?

Acute trauma is a single traumatic event - such as a serious car accident - taht overwhelms a child's ability to cope.  Chronic trauma (also called complex trauma) means exposure to more than one - often many - traumatic events over time.  Children who live in violent neighbourhoods or violent homes (or both) may experience trauma repeatedly.  A child who lives in an environment that exposes him to the threat of physical and sexual abuse is at great risk for chronic traumatization.  Primary caregivers i these environment often cannot protect the child and his interpersonal world is in a constant state of crises.  He has no holding environment.
