Psychological Trauma: The Silent Stalker

Conclusion We must take steps to recognize psychological trauma among our partners and ourselves, establish a supportive culture of understanding and help seeking, and realize that we are ineffective in caring for others if we do not first help ourselves.

Such solutions will most likely become a field of intensive research in the coming years. PMID: 32741792 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
