97. Shannon Black: Trauma Lives In The Body. Luckily, We Can Change The Template

Trauma can be a challenging obstacle to overcome, but there are ways to heal those wounds. Shannon Black is a clinical therapist and educator who shares her passion for understanding the neurology behind trauma and how to deal with it. At any point in our lives when we experience trauma, these incidents can be stored within us and can permanently affect how we feel and respond to situations going forward. We become more susceptible to having traumas stored in us when our nerves are not properly toned and we are regularly dealing with stress. Thankfully there are many means of therapy available that can help us calm and tone our nerves and even rewrite our traumatic memories and potentially overcome them entirely. Create healthy mental templates and move forward with positivity and healing because you deserve it!
