    Converting post-traumatic stress to post-traumatic growth with your warrior soul

    in Lifestyle

    Those who have managed to heal and liberate themselves from their trauma with great resiliency have something in common - they all have converted post-traumatic stress into post-traumatic growth. It’s now a vital part of trauma-informed therapy and healing - this idea that one’s trauma can actually be a source of strength and resiliency, rather than just pain and suffering.


    It also happens to be something that humanity has practiced for as long as it has existed.


    It’s a life practice that is not very easy to digest at first in a society where we expect life to be pristine and perfect. But once acknowledged, it can provide measures of strength and resiliency that you never thought you had and (this is the hard part) might never have found had you not faced the trauma you faced. When you face the fiery gates of hell that your trauma has led you to, no doubt you burn with pain and suffering, but in that raging heat, the inner steel in you cures and toughens. It becomes far stronger than it ever would have been had you not gone through that experience.


    In today's episode we explore the healing process of post-traumatic growth using our warrior souls.


    We're back with yet another day in the life of the happiest guy...my name is Sri. I'm a healer, wannabe writer, failed activist turned stand up comedian, and aspiring mama elephant. And I can't stop talking...

    Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

    in Self Help

    According to the National Institute of Mental Health about 1 in 30 adults in the U.S. suffer from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) in a given year. Those with PTSD suffer persistent fear, flashbacks, hyper vigilance, and more. Though PTSD is largely recognized in war veterans, many different people who have survived traumatic events, such as rape, abuse, or natural disasters, can be impacted by long-term psychological symptoms too.  It is usually triggered by a fearful, helpless, or horrific event that threatens injury to one’s self, or the witnessing of these types of traumatic events that happen to others.


    My special guest for today's show is Author Dan L. Hays, a man who has first-hand knowledge of this paralyzing disorder.  Dan was diagnosed with chronic and severe Post Traumatic Stress Disorder from two incidents in his childhood that he only began remembering as an adult.


    Dan is a very interesting speaker and writer with extensive knowledge on the topic of PTSD. He will be sharing his knowledge with us today and illustrating what the road to healing looks like.

    There is a well known fact among those who have managed to heal and liberate themselves from their trauma with great resiliency. A common thread is that they all converted post-traumatic stress into post-traumatic growth - the idea that one’s trauma can actually be a source of strength and resiliency, rather than just pain and suffering.

    Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

    in Politics

    Post Traumatic Stress Disorder occurs when a person is exposed to one or more traumatic events, such as sexual assault, warfare, serious injury, or threats of imminent death.  The diagnosis may be given when a group of symptoms, such as disturbing recurring flashbacks, avoidance or numbing of memories of the event, and hyperarousal, continue for more than a month after the occurrence of a traumatic event. Most people having experienced a traumatizing event will not develop PTSD.  People who experience assault-based trauma are more likely to develop PTSD, as opposed to people who experience non-assault based trauma such as witnessing trauma, accidents, and fire events. Children are less likely to experience PTSD after trauma than adults, especially if they are under ten years of age. War veterans are commonly at risk for PTSD.  Tonite, we will discuss the issue from a veterans view point.  We will be joined by the CEO of the ARS BELLUM FOUNDATION. Bridget Cronin.  She will discuss how the foundation is helping many veterans and their families.
