Season Finale! Episode 150: Trauma Recovery + The Epigenetics Of Stress + Rewiring The Survival Brain With Elizabeth Stanley, PhD
This week, I’m talking to Elizabeth Stanley, PhD. Elizabeth is an associate professor of security studies at Georgetown University and the author of Widen The Window: Training Your Brain and Body To Thrive During Stress and Recover From Trauma. She’s the creator of Mindfulness-Based Mind Fitness Training (MMFT)® – and her research has been featured on 60 Minutes, ABC Evening News, NPR, and in Time magazine, among others. An award-winning author and U.S. Army veteran with service in Asia and Europe, she holds degrees from Yale, Harvard, and MIT. She’s also a certified practitioner of Somatic Experiencing, a body-based trauma therapy.
In this episode, Elizabeth and I discuss trauma recovery, the damaging effects of always pushing through, the epigenetics of stress, how stress responses can be contagious, respo, why breath-focused meditation is not always right for unprocessed trauma and stress, memory capsules, and being a trauma magnet.
