Many people, children and adults alike, go years and years without understanding the causes of their depression. Depression counseling often brings up past feelings and experiences that sufferers have knowingly or unknowingly suppressed. One of the more widely seen traumas that causes depression is that of abuse; both physical and emotional.
The definition of abuse is to “treat a person with cruelty or violence, especially regularly or repeatedly”. Just take a look at the staggering statistics regarding abuse in just the U.S. alone.
-On average, nearly 20 people per minute are physically abused by an intimate partner in the U.S. During one year, this equates to more than 10 million women and men.
-1 In 8 U.S. Children Experience Neglect, Emotional Or Physical Abuse
