Tim Fletcher continues with the defective coping mechanisms of people exposed to complex trauma.

The next seven are Feeling False Guilt, Anger Issues, Oppositional Defiance Disorder, Escaping to Fantasy, Unrealistic Expectations, Double Standards, Distorted Thinking – a) faulty logic and b) Emotional reasoning c) Black and White Thought Processes and d) Catastrophising.

These defective coping mechanisms are all learnt behaviours as a result of Complex Trauma and they can be rectified with the assistant of a skilled trauma therapist.
