Trauma is a piercing of the protective boundary that maintains life, physical and psychological.  Evolution has ensured that we are equipped to survive and recover from trauma, but because of the prolonged dependency and role of social learning in human development, if developmental processes go awry, or the trauma sufficiently overwhelming, the result can be PTSD, acute or chronic. In my talk I shall explore this perspective from an attachment point of view, draw on Karl Friston’s Free Energy Principle, and point to therapeutic implications.
