Whether or not you are personally involved in a traumatic event, you may come in contact with someone who has experienced trauma or who has PTSD.
Sometimes traumatic events affect an entire community all at once, such as a natural disaster. At other times, trauma affects people less directly. For example, you may live near or work with a person who experienced a traumatic event. Or, you may be exposed to trauma through the media.
