Finding a Post-Trauma Identity
Experiencing a traumatic event is not unusual. About 60% of men and 50% of women experience at least one traumatic event in their lifetime. Be it sexual assault, the death of a child, injury from a near fatal car accident, the destruction from natural disaster or the wounds of war, many have faced the unexpected and suffered from the unspeakable. The question raised is “Who were we before?”, “Who can we become?” 

In this show, Michele Rosenthal, radio show host, professional coach and author of Before The World Intruded: Conquering the Past and Creating the Future, and YOUR LIFE AFTER TRAUMA: Powerful Practices To Reclaim Your Identity, clarifies the meaning and steps toward a Post-Trauma Identity of your choice. Drawing upon her own devastating childhood trauma and her experience working with many trauma survivors, she discusses in the back and forth with host, Dr. Suzanne Phillips, the question of going back to an old self; the awakening and re-birth of traits and talents obscured or buried by trauma; the reality of coping with anger and depression; and the ultimate integration of all that we are, including pain and loss, into a powerful new definition of self.
