You have hundreds of videos on how traumatic affairs are and the amount of trauma inflicted on families as a result. My husband acknowledges that this has been traumatic... but I can tell the true understanding isn’t there because I can tell he doesn’t really know what trauma is. Can you assist me in general terms for any situation in defining that word trauma to my husband? How and when does it occur? Does trauma alter the brain? Are there physical consequences? And finally, are their different levels of severity, and where does an affair fall in the high or low zone of trauma based on what you have learned at Affair Recovery?
