    #98 The Hell Of Being Threatened With Hell At A Young Age And Other Spiritual Trauma (ft. Wes)

    #98 The Hell Of Being Threatened With Hell At A Young Age And Other Spiritual Trauma (ft. Wes)

    In this episode we focus on an often overlooked but incredibly widespread face of trauma: spiritual abuse.  While there are many facets of spiritual abuse, perhaps most notably the clergy child sex scandals that have made massive headlines over the past decades, today we welcome Wes to tell us of trauma sustained starting at an early age when he was threatened with hellfire and brimstone by spiritual leadership abusing their power in an authoritarian manner in order to yield control over a congregation.

    #97 Driving Through A Bad Storm At 3 Years Old Made Her A Traumatized Car Passenger As An Adult (ft. Megan Maerkl)

    In this episode we get the privilege of conversing with Megan Maerkl, who's firefighter husband Ed has been on previous episodes of the show.  When Megan was 3 years old and sitting in a car seat of her parents car, a bad Florida storm raged and the experience of driving through the storm ruined her for decades thereafter.  She recently had a session where a counselor used Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART) and the results were instant.

    #96 The Cure For Cancer? Clear Trauma And The Body Is Designed To Heal (ft. Dr. Leslie Cary)

    In this episode Dr. Leslie Cary joins us to talk about the physiological effects of uncleared trauma, especially on children, and how, different from the animal kingdom, the unconscious mind of human beings processes learnings from traumatic and significant emotional events differently, resulting in a constant replaying of those events in a harmful way to our physiology.  Be prepared to be amazed at you learn about the long term effects of carrying trauma and why healing is vital.

    #95 When Substance Abuse Treatment Meets Trauma Therapy (ft. Patty Montagnino)

    In this episode Patty Montagnino joins us to share of the work she is doing in the Charlotte, NC area with the Carolina Center for Recovery, who is doing revolutionary work in integrating trauma treatment work with the substance abuse treatment work they do with their patients.  They are getting excellent results, recognizing that this wholistic approach affirms that in so many cases of substance abuse it's only a cover for underlying trauma.

    #94 The Trauma Of Hearing You Have Cancer: Why We Fight, Run Or Get Stuck

    #94 The Trauma Of Hearing You Have Cancer: Why We Fight, Run Or Get Stuck

    That moment in a doctor's office that everyone fears: "this might be cancer".  In this episode we talk about how people process traumatic news and how the support systems that surround a person, from families to friends and co-workers, can walk with someone effectively during these times.  Many times the physically ill do not get mental health treatment during their battle and are robbed of an emotional wellbeing better suited to aid them in their fight.
