How does trauma and shame affect us?

Episode notes

Hi there,

Have you ever worried about your trousers falling down whilst giving a public talk?

Well I have, and it turns out that worrying about something happening can actually be worse for us that the actual thing happening…we’re such weird and wonderful creatures, aren’t we?

Anyway, where am I going with this? Ah, yes, ‘trauma and shame’. These two interrelated things can have such a powerful impact on how we show up in the world that I wanted to learn more about them.

So this week I chat with Behavioural Scientist from Deakin University, Hannah Bereznicki, about those very topics.

I really hope you enjoy this conversation with Hannah.

Big hug
