This chapter explores the impact of a traumatic event on the wider systems of family, friends and community networks and how to make best use of them in therapy. It begins with the concept of disclosure, where an individual chooses to share their traumatic experience publicly, and moves to consider discourses in families, communities and wider systems. It touches on the friction produced by different contexts and how these multiple contexts shape and are shaped by a traumatic experience.
