Trauma, whether one-time, multiple, or long-lasting repetitive events (complex trauma), affects everyone differently. The impact of trauma can be subtle, hidden, or outright destructive. How an event affects an individual depends on many factors, including characteristics of the individual, the type and characteristics of the event(s), developmental processes, the meaning of the trauma, and sociocultural factors. Usually, the impact of trauma fades relatively quickly, typically within one to three months.

These lingering effects of trauma are usually diagnosed as Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder or PTSD.
