Identifying and Reclaiming Your Identity After Trauma
This show raises a question often left unanswered in the aftermath of a traumatic event--Who am I now? On this show PTSD survivor and expert, Michele Rosenthal discusses her latest book, Your Life After Trauma: Powerful Practices to Reclaim Your Identity. In the back and forth with host Suzanne Phillips, the discussion addresses the meaning of identity, the impact of traumatic events on the story we tell about ourselves, and the steps and obstacles to developing a Post-Trauma Identity.

Drawing upon her own early medical trauma and the long road to recovery, Michele Rosenthal describes how we reach into the past for things we love, how we find new definitions of self in our present lives and how we become the person we want to be in the future. This informational and inspirational show is for people of any age who have suffered with traumatic life events and for those who love them.
