Depression, Anxiety, and the Please Response in Complex Trauma
In this conversation with Dr. Art O’Malley, we explore the complexity of trauma and how suppressed anger can contribute to anxiety and depression later on in life.
Complex trauma, or developmental trauma, most often spans a period in time and can involve sexual, physical, and psychological abuse. The responses with complex trauma aren’t just limited to fight, flight, or freezing but also involves the please or fawn response.
