In Greek, the actual meaning of the word “trauma” is: WOUND.
For men, thanks to the Man Rules, the word “trauma” is very often interpreted as one haunting word: WEAK
The truth is we have just begun to be honest about the degree to which men experience trauma. While statistics often show that women experience trauma at rates of 80% or higher and men at about 20% or lower. We fundamentally disagree with such findings and believe they are more reflective of the overall stigma and ignorance surrounding men’s trauma.
