After trauma you’re doing your best to keep yourself safe and in control. In order to accomplish this things may, er, get a little out of control! It’s very common for trauma survivors to develop obsessive-compulsive tendencies. Why does this happen and what can you do about it? Those are the topics we’ll discuss with my first guest, Dr. Robin Zasio (you might recognize her from the show, HOARDERS).

Research suggests that one way to rewire the brain is to allow it to have positive experiences. How often do you give your brain that gift? It’s tough to be positive after trauma. Recovery offers its own slew of challenges that can make anyone extremely negative. Alan Cohen, co-founder of The Positivity Project sheds some light on how to be more positive and simple strategies to begin honing that skill.
