Trauma bond

A bond and attachment that happens

During traumatic experiences

is a “trauma bond”.

It sets a pattern of seeing danger everywhere,

of creating drama, and anticipating and participating

in trauma on a regular basis.

Relationships with a trauma bond

are often exhausting, toxic, dependent and chaotic.

Healing a trauma bonded relationship

needs to start with providing a safe space.

Sometimes boundaries or no contact

are the only path to healing.

Each person in the trauma bond

has a personal and unique recovery journey ahead.

Step one is to realize: “I am living in trauma bond,

and I want to get out!”
