Trauma affects a significant number of people in the United States (Gilbert et al., 2015; National Council for Community Behavioral Healthcare, 2011). According to one of the largest studies completed on childhood abuse and neglect, approximately 66 percent of adults have been exposed to at least one violent traumatic event in their childhood, and nearly one-quarter have been exposed to three or more categories of adverse events, including childhood abuse, neglect, and household substance abuse (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention [CDC], 2016).
