Coping Strategies for Complex Trauma Survivors Contending with the COVID-19 Pandemic (in English, Spanish, French, & Portuguese)


This resource guide has been compiled to help complex trauma survivors cope with stressful current events or times of global crisis. Initially compiled in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, this guide illustrates coping strategies that are applicable in many situations. Stressors that can require people to isolate such as natural disasters, terrorism, or pandemics can trigger symptoms in people with histories of complex trauma. This resource explains the role that prior complex trauma plays in an individual’s response to current events, and outlines approaches to help people feel connected, safe, and more in control.
