What is Complex Trauma?

Complex trauma refers to a type of trauma that is chronic, repetitive, and often interpersonal in nature, leading to significant disruptions in one’s sense of safety, trust, and identity.

“People who have endured complex trauma are like dandelions: incredibly resilient, of much greater worth than is often realized, and able to find ways to adapt and survive despite overwhelming circumstances and seemingly insurmountable adversity.”

Rancho has been selected as a Complex Trauma Training Consortium (CTTC) site to provide an array of complex trauma training throughout the Greater Los Angeles metropolitan and Southern California areas.
