New Year's Special with New York Times author, Dr Kacey Vu Shap
This episode is a particularly special one to me as it was a 20 year reunion with an old friend of mine whose work I came across in the New York Times about his adoption from Vietnam. Entitled 'Why did she leave me there?', Kacey talks about the emotional trauma that he faced as a result of his abandonment by his grandmother, and how as a researcher his own 'hero's journey' helped him to want to understand how former gang members deal with trauma and try to move beyond it.
