Betrayal Trauma is very similar yet vastly different to the fear-based trauma that we are more familiar with. Betrayal trauma is a Type I trauma which is an unexpected and discreet experience that overwhelms the individual’s ability to cope with stress, fear, threat, and/or horror of the event and ensues when a person we rely upon for our existence and/or are substantially committed to, violates our trust in a serious manner and in several ways. There are two vital differences between fear-based trauma and betrayal trauma: The perpetrator is in a close bond with the victim and recidivism (of trauma) risk is high (not necessarily acting out). There are many symptoms of betrayal trauma that are normal for people to experience. Healing from betrayal trauma takes commitment to self, self-care, and the desires to grow through the trauma. And for most people, expert help.
