    Complex Trauma in the form of multiple and/or ongoing trauma is a common experience for clients. It exists in many forms from sexual abuse to witnessing or experiencing repeated violence and many forms in between. Therapists are often aware of its existence but frequently feel challenged regarding how to work with it.
