Episode 56: The Trauma-Informed Life. Are you ready for some football!

Podcasters: Matthew Bennett, Curt Mower, & Dr. Jerry Yager

In Episode 56 we introduce to a new theme to our podcast, how the trauma-informed paradigm translates into how we view things outside our professional work. In this episode, three big football fans discuss how our understanding of trauma and neurobiology effects how we view the game we all love. As this episode demonstrates, like-minded people often come to different conclusions. The important thing, from a trauma-informed perspective, is to use our knowledge to examine how our actions impact the health and well-being of others and our community.

Discussion questions:

  1. How has your understanding of trauma impacted your thinking about things outside your professional life?
  2. What benefits do you see in taking the trauma-informed lens and placing it on larger societal topics?
  3. With so much trauma in the news, how can you use the trauma-informed lens to help others understand other’s actions in a deeper way?
