In this episode, Emy and Gabi discuss trauma with trauma specialist, Victoria Carney-Paine. They clear up the misconceptions and confusions around trauma. Additionally, Vicki defines trauma. She explains how trauma shows up in many diferent ways. We don’t have to suffer through a horrific experience in order to define it as a traumatic experience. She also talks about how trauma affects our body physically, not only emotionally. Meaning trauma can show up as heart disease years later. Vicki also explains how signs can show up years after experiencing a traumatic experience.

A book recommended by both Vicki regarding trauma by Bessel A. van der Kolk, The Body Keeps the Score.
