Trauma-Informed Lens Podcast
Episode 2: What is Trauma Anyway?
Posted on September 26, 2017
If our podcast is all about a “trauma-informed” lens, maybe we should talk about what experiences qualify as traumatic. In this episode, Matt, Curt, and Jerry talk about various issues leading to the categorization of experiences as traumatic. This week’s Bright Shiny Objects segment includes our casters’ top attention-getting topics or experiences since the last episode. Matt presents the perspective of chronic vs acute stressors, leading to a discussion of some of the implications of differential categorization of experiences.
