For many of us, trauma is something “big”: a car accident, the loss of a loved one, a disturbing event or tragic series of events. However, did you know that trauma can also be less obvious and more pervasive, affecting how we function on a day-to-day basis? In this podcast, I speak to holistic psychologist Nicole LaPera about the difference between primary and secondary trauma, the power of holistic mental wellness, how to heal childhood trauma, compassion fatigue and more!
