“Trauma causes psychological, physical, mental, and/or emotional pain, often resulting in grief.Trauma is a response to an intensely distressing or disturbing event, such as an accident or rape.Grief happens when someone experiences loss, loses a loved one, loses a job or a divorce, for instance. In the process of grief, people cry and often feel empty. Shock, denial, bargaining, guilt, anger, depression, and acceptance are the stages involved in grief of all forms. People and couples experience grief in both relationships and marriage, often resulting in sexual, physical, and psychological maltreatment. The experience of trauma and grief varies from one culture to another.
Aside from gender, religious, and spiritual beliefs, cultural aspects play a critical role in the grieving process. Suppressing grief, meaning subduing one’s feelings, may lead to trauma becoming stored in the body and spirit. Grief cannot be suppressed, no matter how it is concealed. It will come out, eventually.”
