202. Past Trauma and Bone Loss – Dr. Keesha Ewers


“Capital T trauma is what we think about when we think of trauma. Domestic violence, physical abuse, sexual abuse, psychological emotional neglect, having a parent divorced or addicted to a substance or mentally ill. Lowercase T trauma is trauma that we experience when we feel betrayed or rejected or not good enough.”
