Every therapist agrees that the impact of a traumatic event goes beyond physical damage. The emotional toll can result in a wide range of intense emotions and it takes time to recover emotional equilibrium. Being Black in America can be extraordinarily stressful. Being treated as “second class” citizen, called names, and being excluded shatter all sense of security, causing feelings of helpless and vulnerability in a dangerous world where feelings of anxiousness and uncertainty. These unsettling thoughts and feelings can only fade if life circumstances change. How to cope with feelings of injustice, racism and covert discrimination is a topic of debate in many Black American communities.
People react in different ways to traumatic events. There is no “right” or “wrong” way to think, feel or respond. The American public is intolerant of the reactions and feelings of Black Americans in Baltimore when they rioted protesting the murder of an unarmed Black American man. The city was put under curfew and the street activists were called “thugs”. There was no effort to send in counselors to help the “traumatized” people with the emotional event.
Persons who ignore feelings will slow the healing process; however, in the Black community, “forgive and forget” is the tenet. Following the killing of nine Black people in Charleston, South Carolina in a church during a prayer meeting by a young White American, statements of “we forgive him” were made before the dead was buried. That is not benevolence; that is denial.
The symptoms of traumatic stress include physical manifestations as well as emotional, such as, pounding heart, feelings of choked up, stomach churning, racing thoughts, raised blood pressure, headaches and difficulty sleeping.

“Sleep deprivation during military deployment is archaic, harmful and institutionally unavoidable. It may aggravate, and even cause, PTSD in veterans returning from combat. Why’s it taking so long for military brass to take action?” – Peter S. Green, journalist
Award-winning journalist Peter S. Green investigated sleep deprivation during military deployment and how “circadian scarring” among our troops may aggravate, and even cause, PTSD in veterans returning from combat. Green asks, “Why is it taking so long for military brass to take action?”
During today’s show our guest, Miguel Reece, Retired US Air Force Major and former VA civil servant, will address this and other related issues that are adversely affecting our servicemen and servicewomen while on and returning from deployment.
A case study: U.S. Army Corporal Sean Bedingfield
Through the long summer of 2008, U.S. Army Corporal Sean Bedingfield led a fire team at a dust-choked combat operations post in the craggy terrain of Kunar province in northeastern Afghanistan. His platoon was five men short of its full 32-person complement, and would catch incoming fire several times a day from Taliban insurgents in the surrounding hills.
Full-day patrols sent Bedingfield and his squad 3,000 feet or more up into the mountains, and another 3,000 feet back down to their camp. At night, they stood watch to ward off insurgents. Often, they’d double-staff the watchtowers to ensure no one fell asleep. “If one guy dozed, the other’s job was to slap him around to wake him up,” Bedingfield said.

Traumatic grief is one of the most difficult aspects of post-trauma life. Survivors grieve their lost selves, the inaction, the changes trauma has brought, the others who may have been hurt at the same time, etc. An inability to overcome traumatic grief can drastically impede recovery, which makes learning how to transform it so very important.
In this episode of ‘Your Life After Trauma’ Courtney Armstrong, Anxiety, Trauma and Grief Counselor, tells us about her special approach to ‘Transforming Traumatic Grief’.

****TODAY IS A PRE-RECORDED PODCAST. NO CALLS WILL BE TAKEN DURING BROADCAST****
In the debate about the Confederate Flags still flying on legislative houses in some Southern states, the question often arises, "Why is all this focus on the flag?" The truth is, the focus of this effort to remove these flags from buildings that are supposed to represent and serve all the people is not the flag, but what it represents - the pain and horror of slavery, and the lasting impact it has not just on the descendants of the African slaves who endured it, but on White America to this day.
Please listen carefully as Dr. Leary delves deeply into the connection between the trauma of slavery and the dysfunction in American society today. We hope that this will provide more insight into why all the other reasons cited that the Civil War was fought are never as important as slavery to many people. Because if the South had won, we might not be talking about POST Traumatic Slave Syndrome, but Traumatic Slave Syndrome, because we might still be slaves.
