Can facial tics (such as eye blinking/twitching) be a result

Patient: Can facial tics (such as eye blinking/twitching) be a result of an enotionally traumatic event? I know this is a complex question, but I’m really wondering if a traumatic event experienced in childhood can result in a life long tic?
