As more research goes into how trauma, and specifically adverse childhood events, can affect a person’s physical and mental health, there is also research being done to see how resiliency plays into this.  Many people are affected by trauma, some are totally overwhelmed by it, and others rise up.  Why does this difference exist, and how do we help increase a person’s odds of overcoming previous trauma?
