My Traumatic Stress - A New All Trauma Community If you're having a difficult time with a minor or major traumatic event, not PTSD specific, we now support all trauma types at My Traumatic Stress community. No diagnosis required. It has been explained to me that if a mother is suffering from stress and trauma, that the likely hood of that child of developing PTSD is considerably higher. Due to low cortisol levels. I have only read a few articles on this. Yet I'm wondering what others think of this? If anyone has more information on this? and can direct me torwards a website or a book that explains it in more detail. WildWitch.
