What are some of the health consequences of exposure to trauma and victimization?
- Evidence suggests that more than 60% of adults in the US will be exposed to a traumatic event during their lifetime
- The rate of trauma exposure for children and adolescents has been estimated to be about 40%
- Each year, approximately one million persons become victims of violent crimes at work
- The conditional risk of developing post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) was found to be about 13% for females and 6% for males in the general population.
- Suicide rates have been seen to increase 62% in the first year after an earthquake, increase 31% in the first two years after a hurricane, and increase by almost 14% four years after a flood
