Developmental Trauma Disorder, as a proposed diagnosis, is about the combined stress that occurs as the child experiences maltreatment whilst not receiving regulatory support from the caregiving system. Children exposed to trauma in childhood often develop a wide range of difficulties related to regulation, attachment, psychological and physiological development, social and academic functioning, and also difficulties linked to behaviour and self-development. This thesis is about developmental trauma and its consequences in childhood. The method used for this thesis is a literary study, which means that the research used in this thesis is existing knowledge. This means that the thesis does not create new information, but it may offer new acknowledgements. The purpose of this thesis is to find consequences, as well as to gain understanding and knowledge about the subject that is developmental trauma. Children who are exposed to this type of trauma may face difficulties in life linked to their early developmental years. The negative effects of developmental trauma can be devastating for the individuals, and consequently for society. This thesis clearly indicates that children who are subject to developmental trauma have problems adjusting to other people and their surroundings. This can lead to difficulties completing school and creating relationships, which can lead to marginalization.
