Episode 11: Trauma & Memory

Memory is a process that allows for the organization, storage, and retrieval of information from the past to influence our perception of the present and anticipate the future. Many people continue to consider “memory” as what we recall in a life narrative but the process of memory is more complex. Due to a child’s age or a person’s state of mind, many of our most powerful memories are stored without words and are experienced as if they were reoccurring, without conscious awareness that one is remembering. Unintegrated, unresolved traumatic memories can continue to haunt an individual in the present and become barriers to new, successful life experiences.
