I do see people who never recover from the traumatic events. I also see many people who are able to incorporate the traumatic experiences into a life experience which is positive.
Yes, the effects will be different in all cases as I described in the case of the guards at Woomara. My father and my father-in-law had two completely different reactions to World War 11 in which they both served abroad. In each case the effects were passed down through the family, in different ways of course.
May I ask of your experiences?
