What lies underneath addictions, overworking, and dissociation? What’s coming to light with the #metoo movement, the Brock Turner case, our inability to discuss politics or religion or sex effectively? Often, underneath are varying shades of trauma.
This unveiling is upleveling our collective understanding of not only trauma, but emotions--anger, especially--as well as our understanding of the power of our limbic systems and the nature of epigenetics. As things simmer to the surface and people proclaim their wounds, messy responses are inevitable. Anger is often not tidy. There does seem to be a shift happening. We are learning how to heal, how to be a grounding force for others, how to connect in a deeper, richer way. We are learning how to listen.
This is what this week’s episode is all about. And I have my friend, Robert Cox, a Kansas City, MO based therapist known for his work in trauma, addiction and autism, here with me to talk through the interconnectedness of all of these issues and how we move forward.
