In psychology, self-esteem or self-worth includes a person's subjective appraisal of himself or herself as intrinsically positive or negative to some degree (Sedikides & Gregg, 2003).Self-esteem involves both self-relevant beliefs (e.g., "I am competent/incompetent", "I am liked/disliked") and associated self-relevant emotions (e.g., triumph/despair, pride/shame).
It also finds expression in behavior (e.g., assertiveness/timorousness, confidence/caution).
Trauma can be described as a normal reaction to an abnormal circumstance(s). Often people suffering from the effects of trauma do not associate the symptoms with the event(s) of origin and do not understand why they are struggling. They may blame themselves and become frustrated that they are unable to resume as they did prior to the trauma that occurred.
