The present chapter provides an overview of the robust and reciprocal nature of associations between interpersonal processes and trauma. Given strong evidence for the interaction of interpersonal processes and trauma, research has examined increasingly comprehensive models of coping with traumatic stress as related to interpersonal process, reviewed herein. Our chapter first provides an overview of aspects of the trauma itself that are relevant to interpersonal processes. We then review the effects of trauma on engagement with others, stress-buffering models of posttrauma social support, and interactional models for understanding the complex interactions of trauma and interpersonal relationships.
