WHAT IS TRAUMA?

Trauma is a person’s emotional response to a distressing experience. Few people can go through life without encountering some kind of trauma. Unlike ordinary hardships, traumatic events tend to be sudden and unpredictable, involve a serious threat to life—like bodily injury or death—and feel beyond a person’s control. Most important, events are traumatic to the degree that they undermine a person's sense of safety in the world and create a sense that catastrophe could strike at any time. Parental loss in childhood, auto accidents, physical violence, sexual assault, military combat experiences, the unexpected loss of a loved one are commonly traumatic events.

EFFECTS OF TRAUMA

Disturbing events activate the amygdala, a structure in the brain responsible for detecting threats. It responds by sending out an alarm to multiple body systems to prepare for defense.

WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE OFFER

WELCOME TO CONVERSATIONS 

REAL PEOPLE. REAL STORIES.

TRAUMA TALK SERIES

Our podcast conversations open doorways into understanding trauma and its consequences by sharing compelling, real life stories, full of insight and inspiration - and practical tools - by hearing directly from extraordinary people themselves, who have overcome incredible hardships and found meaning and purpose while managing the challenges of everyday life.

DIANA'S STORY

What do you do when your 12-year old son suffers a traumatic bullying incident, becomes unstable and begins to spiral dangerously into what no-one-knows?  We were completely lost. 

Now twelve years later – twelve grueling years that were filled with uncertainty and pain – he is now in college, living independently, achieving academic success, and doing better than we could have ever dreamed. I have learned so much about him, about trauma and, especially about myself and the role that traumatic and untenable experiences have also played in my life.

TRAUMA TALK PODCAST SERIES 

THE TOLL OF TRAUMA AND THE OPPORTUNITY FOR A NEW BEGINNING

Understanding how traumatic events can result in suffering, from mild to severe, and how one event could so drastically alter the human brain, body and mind – and how a new balance and life can eventually emerge. All this has been the object of my dedication to finding strategies that became solutions during those twelve years. Our conversations are filled with real people sharing real stories about the lessons they learned from their traumatic experiences and experts talking about evidenced-based training programs and the array of national resources available to all of us. These are the subjects of our Trauma Talk Podcast Series. 

CONVERSATIONS: 

MAKING MEANING OUT OF TRAUMA

We can have a meaningful life, we can be the hero of our own story. We can learn to steer through those sometimes-turbulent waters and face our own trials and challenges amid the stress of our daily lives.

And yes, for many of us, we have experienced and had to deal with real trauma, those stressors that have left their marks on our souls that we often struggle to acknowledge, and feel uncertain as to how to find ways to integrate these experiences in order to make them a meaningful part of our story.

Our podcast conversations will help you to make meaning out of your traumatic experiences.

GUIDANCE & TOOLS

PRACTICAL GUIDANCE

Along the way our conversations and guests will offer useful tips they have learned that include highly skilled communication techniques and practical tools to help you to navigate your way to well-being in the areas of your life that matter to you - and ideas for creating your own healthy toolkit that supports you and your family.

PLEASE ENJOY!
