Trauma is a harmful event or circumstances that have lasting adverse effects on a person’s social, emotional, physical, or spiritual well-being. What is traumatic for one person may not necessarily be traumatic for another. However, once people experience something that is traumatic for them, they require trauma treatment to recover fully.

Individuals with bulimia nervosa, binge eating disorder, or any binge eating have significantly higher rates of PTSD than individuals without an eating disorder.
