What IS trauma? How can we better understand it in order to heal and move forward in our lives? Today we have a timely episode with an incredible guest who shares with us why trauma looks different person to person and why it is so important to look at the individual when looking for means of healing. I have the honor of introducing to you today the one and only, Dr. Pelcovitz.

Dr. Pelcovitz is a clinical psychologist who has spent his entire career teaching and conducting research on a variety of mental health topics including today’s topic, trauma. He shares with us the definition of trauma and how there are many individualistic variables in how we interpret and heal from our own personal trauma.

In this powerful interview we dive into topics like how to build resilience, the importance of receiving and giving “non-judgemental” support, and why he believes there is always hope. We also dig into the importance of educating loved ones on the topic of trauma, the importance of “desirable difficulties”, and why he believes mental health issues have been on the rise.

We hope this conversation sheds light on the difficulties you or your loved ones have faced and gives you hope that there is healing and we can experience a new tomorrow. Connect with us in our private Facebook group, Hope to Recharge. We would love to hear from you! Because as always, together is better!
