Growing up in a home where there is addiction or relationship trauma puts a child at great risk for long-term, post-traumatic stress effects that adversely compromise adult relationships. Bestselling author, psychologist, and psychodramatist Tian Dayton examines this trauma through an exploration of the way the brain and body process frightening or painful emotions and experiences in childhood, and she shows how these traumas can become catalysts for unhealthy, self-medicating behaviors including drug and alcohol abuse, food issues, and sex, gambling, and shopping addictions.
Through Dr. Dayton’s insightful analysis and thoughtful examination, Adult Children of Alcoholics will learn how and why the pain they experienced in childhood plays out in their adult partnering and parenting, and they will learn how to restore health and happiness through their resilience.

Trauma and Addiction
Judith Crane, LMHC,CAP, ICADC, CSAT, CTT, Shelley Uram, MD & Tian Dayton, MA, PhD,
Trauma can be described as an event or events that have taken place in a person’s life and have
caused a lasting negative or unpleasant reaction in their mind, body or spirit. Trauma treatment
is a unique type of treatment that incorporates multiple styles of methods and modalities to form
a gentle and healing treatment environment. Unresolved trauma manifests itself in a number of
self destructive ways that include self harm, eating or restricting to mollify negative feelings,
gambling, workaholism and internet addiction. These behaviors become a way to deal with the
pain of the underlying trauma.
