    (Episode 20): How to Heal from Past Trauma for Healthier Relationships w/ Dr. Jude Austin

    (Episode 20): How to Heal from Past Trauma for Healthier Relationships w/ Dr. Jude Austin

    Healing from Past Trauma for Healthier Relationships w/ Dr. Jude Austin
    People don’t date people; they date patterns. These old patterns, driven by unresolved trauma, have strong gravitational forces that pull us into familiar but unhealthy ways of loving and being loved. As we strive for connection, this unresolved trauma often leads to dysregulation.
    In 1 Corinthians 13:4-8, we learn about the true nature of love. But how do we apply this wisdom when past traumatic experiences unconsciously guide us towards unhealthy patterns? This podcast delves into the practical application of 1 Corinthians 13:4-8, focusing on knowledge, attitudes, and strategies for overcoming unresolved trauma.
    Join Jude Austin, PhD, an expert with a doctorate in Counselor Education and Supervision, LPC, LMFT, NCC, and CCMHC. Dr. Austin is an Assistant Professor in the Professional Counseling Program at the University of Mary Hardin Baylor and serves as the program’s Clinical Mental Health Counseling Track Coordinator. He also maintains a private practice in Temple, Texas. His research centers on counselor education pedagogy, specifically finding ways to help counseling students develop therapeutic presence in session.
    Through this podcast, Dr. Austin provides Christian leaders, therapists, and individuals with the support and strategies needed to break free from the past and build healthier, more fulfilling relationships.

NewwGirl ,

Thank You Mrs. Shakeeta!!

I am so thankful for Mrs.Shakeeta she offers a wealth of knowledge, experience and wisdom. That is empowered by the Holy Spirit and communicated with compassion and empathy. It’s so refreshing to have the opportunity to glean knowledge from someone who has a great deal of experience as a licensed therapist, as well as a strong biblical foundation.
