What about this type of assault?

broken heart1

I have always believed that emotional trauma IS also physical trauma. It has similar long-term effects to physical trauma. It really is an assault upon the entire nervous system. Most survivors have experienced polytrauma, and it would be nice to see courts begin to use the data that backs up the long-term effects of abuse during deliberations and sentencing.

What are your thoughts about this?

  1. I don’t think courts are THE answer, but, ideally, they would recognize this type of assault & the very real resulting trauma. I hope others will be educated on how and why to behave kindly to others. I hope citizens will be supportive, not destructive, and prevent this from happening in the first place. I know this is a lofty goal, but blogs like these that bring awareness will help.
