Q & A – what is betrayal trauma?

Betrayal trauma is a term used to describe the emotional and psychological distress that results from a betrayal by a person with whom a close relationship is trusted and depended upon. The betrayal can involve infidelity, lying, hiding information, breaking promises, or violating boundaries, and it can occur in any type of close relationship, such as romantic partnerships, friendships, or family relationships.

The experience of betrayal trauma can be extremely painful and can cause a range of emotional and physical symptoms, including depression, anxiety, anger, feelings of powerlessness, and physical health problems. The effects of betrayal trauma can be long-lasting and can impact a person’s ability to trust others and form healthy relationships in the future.

Therapy and support groups can be helpful for individuals who have experienced betrayal trauma to process their emotions, develop coping strategies, and rebuild their sense of trust and safety in relationships.
