What is Trauma? How does it come about? When are our clients exhibiting trauma reactions as opposed to the effects of grief and loss? How does trauma manifest in the fertility counselling room? How do fertility counsellors support clients experiencing both past and current trauma? What’s the small “t” and what’s the big “T”?
