Episode #29 Dr. Jantz Discusses Triumph Over Trauma, Part 2

While the word trauma can feel uncomfortable, and the definition of trauma may seem broad, it does have a definition that we can all relate to. Trauma can be either a one-time event, or a series of events, that causes great emotional pain that is overwhelming, and that we don’t typically recover from. It usually has whole person implications – emotional health, physical health, immune health, relational, spiritual, and more.

The pandemic exacerbated trauma. We had anticipatory anxiety. It triggered a lot of latent, past trauma. We are noticing that a huge increase in unresolved trauma, and it is often more pronounced and debilitating that depression or anxiety.

Left untreated, the effects of trauma often get worse. The good news is that trauma is not just treatable, but can be overcome. It requires care, and a plan to recover. There are no shortcuts. There are newer tools that can be helpful…but there are no short cuts to recovery.

In this podcast, Dr. Jantz covers the 10 significant truths to trauma. He explains what the characteristics are of someone who lives with unresolved trauma. And finally, he walks through ways you can help improve and begin to work through your trauma on a daily basis.

Trauma does not have to be a life sentence. Forward this podcast to friends who may be struggling with trauma. It may manifest in depression, anxiety, excessive worry and fear, or quick-to-anger behavior. In each case, this podcast may be a great resources to begin the recovery process.
