Trauma happens when the internal and external resources of individuals or communities are not enough to cope with an external threat, and it is a kind of adversity that has a lasting impact on those individuals or communities. Because people’s experiences build and impact the brain’s architecture, trauma responses trigger survival mode reactions such as fight, flight, freezing, or collapsing. There are different types of trauma, including racial and historical trauma, that can impact people and communities in different ways.
