What is a Trauma Bond?

A trauma bond is a strong emotional connection that forms between two people who have gone through a traumatic experience together. This bond can be positive or negative, depending on the nature of the trauma and the relationship between the two people involved.

How does a Trauma Bond form?

There is no one answer to this question as the formation of a trauma bond can happen in a variety of ways. However, some common ways that a trauma bond can form include: -A shared traumatic experience: This is perhaps the most common way that a trauma bond can form. When two people go through a traumatic experience together, they often form a strong emotional bond as a result. -A history of abuse: If someone has a history of being abused, they may be more likely to form a trauma bond with their abuser. This is because the abuser becomes a source of both pain and pleasure for the victim, and the victim may become dependent on the abuser for both emotional and physical needs. -A need for approval: If someone is constantly seeking approval from others, they may be more likely to form a trauma bond. This is because they may become overly reliant on the approval of others and may be more likely to stay in a abusive or unhealthy relationship.
