Have you ever wondered how your past traumas might be influencing your present life? In this episode, Dr. Jade welcomes the insightful Justin Janoska to the podcast, and together they embark on a journey through the labyrinth of trauma, its potential impacts, and the clues our bodies might be giving us about past traumas. Together, they attempt to redefine trauma, not just as major life-altering events but also as minor instances that subtly shape us and influence our growth.
This conversation with Justin Janoska takes an in-depth look at the often-overlooked responses to trauma: fight, flight, freeze, and fawn. Justin explains how these responses can impact our sense of safety, acceptance, autonomy, and self-worth. He delves into the concept of written exposure therapy and story editing, uncovering its potential to empower us by offering new perspectives and narratives that can reshape our lives rather than holding us back.
Justin and Dr. Jade discuss the concept of pain as a tool for growth rather than a burden. Justin imparts his wisdom on how to view our pain, providing a fresh perspective that can empower us to learn, teach, and love in a way that aids others. Tune in for more!
