Episode 4
51m | Jul 26, 2021

In the mainstream world, trauma is narrowly defined. The truth is that trauma has a much wider definition and broader effects than is commonly understood. In this conversation with Anya Nyson (, we describe this more accurate definition of trauma and the mechanisms through which it works. We differentiate between trauma and PTSD, and childhood trauma and traumatic events. We even touch on trauma’s relationship to shame and epigenetics. The second part of the conversation, which you'll definitely want to stick around for, describes how we can move through trauma using mindfulness and reparenting techniques. This episode is chock full of priceless information that is useful for all of us.
