Question: What kind of trauma causes codependency?

Childhood trauma is often a root cause of codependency. They dont always result, but for many people codependent relationships are a response to unaddressed past traumas. One reason may be that childhood trauma is usually family-centered: abuse, neglect, domestic violence, or even just divorce and fighting.

Is codependency part of PTSD?

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is not uncommon among codependents who experienced trauma either as a child or adult. Diagnosis requires a specific number of symptoms that last for at least 30 days and may start long after the triggering event.

Is codependency the same as trauma bonding?

Within a trauma bond, the narcissists partner—who often has codependency issues—first feels loved and cared for. However, this begins to erode over time, and the emotional, mental, and sometimes physical abuse takes over the relationship. The codependent understands the change, but not why it is occurring.
