  • What is a trauma bond and how are they created?
  • How can you tell if you are in a trauma bonded relationship?
  • Once you realize that you’re in a trauma bonded relationship, what are the first, and most important, steps that you should take to break the bond?
  • If you had to recommend three things that someone can do every single day to cope with the painful thoughts, feelings, and emotions that being in a trauma bonded relationship creates, what would they be and why?
  • What are the short and long term effects of trauma bonding?
