A few years ago Michele received an angry email from a psychiatrist belittling her for believing that PTSD can be healed. His point was that people with PTSD are like a bone that’s broken. The fracture will eventually knit and heal, but it will always be weak, undependable and prone to more breaks in the same place. It turns out, he was WRONG.

Through the perspective of science on this show Michele dispels the myth that PTSD automatically leaves you forever broken and/or weaker. Instead, she offers the scientific proof for what might actually be otherwise: You're stronger and less prone to break.

Michele’s shows combine scientific research, cutting-edge guests and personal stories that highlight the challenges and successes of deliberately deciding to change the direction of your life. If you could use some inspiration, motivation, how-to strategy or just company along your own private journey, tune in for each episode's insights and suggestions guaranteed to help you move forward.
