The focus of today's show is Complex PTSD.
The human and economic costs of stress caused by modern life is staggering and unsustainable. Millions of people every year die or are disable needlessly by stress-related disease, while the economic losses in the trillions of dollars per year are crippling governments world wide. We need to reexamine how we do things, or else the costs of stress will be highly destabilizing to society.
The top stressor for humans is relational stress--stress resulting from breakdowns in interactions with other people.
Today's special guest, Dr. Mary Wingo wants to bring decades or fascinating and groundbreaking research in human stress into clarity for the average person. This is perhaps one of the most complicated fields in science, as it crosses so many disciplines. As a result, even many life scientists do not understand the adaptive stress response.
Mary Wingo, Ph.D., author of the Impact of the Human Stress Response is a paradigm-shifting author and scientist who speaks about the biological, psychological, sociological, political, and economic aspects of human stress in a fun and easy-to-understand way. She has been a permanent resident in Ecuador for 2 years. She trained as a Ph.D. scientist and is a business person originally from the United States, but quit the science profession for 10 years before returning due to the humanitarian crisis we now face due to preventable stress.
