DEALING WITH CHILDHOOD TRAUMA Print E-mail

Mitja Krajnčan , Rada Polajnar , Olivera Gajić

Abstract

The family should be a place of respite for all its members, but can also be characterised by the hidden reality of oppressive relationships involving various forms of violence and abuse. This article outlines the basic characteristics of the family, the forms of violence that can exist within its confines, its specific qualities and possible help. The results of the qualitative research are outlined, in which we explored, using a case study as the basis, the various forms of violence that can exist within the family unit, and the traumatic consequences that stay with victims until adulthood. When dealing with trauma, a plethora of self-help options offer possible ways to eliminate the traumatic conditions present.

Keywords: family, violence, trauma, dealing with trauma, self-help
