Emotional Trauma & the Tricky Road to Recovery
Emotional trauma. It’s horrible to consider but sadly each of us and everyone we know will have to deal with a trauma event at some point in our lives if not multiple times. Why is it that some of us can bounce back quickly from even the most severe traumas? And yet others are haunted by the event for years or even decades, permanently changing the arc of their lives in a negative way. Dr. Maroño will look at the neuroscience of what happens to us during an emotional trauma and most importantly how we respond to these stressors as well as the road to recovery from such incidents.
