Anxiety, PTSD and the Courage to Thrive - Lou Lebentz AXAV0206 ¦ The Anxiety Advantage [podcast] Season 02 Episode 06 hosted by Yang-May Ooi

Trauma can affect us in one sudden awful incident. Or it can build up bit by bit over years of repeated pain and suffering. Trauma can be passed down through the generations. It can affect societies and communities as well as individuals. How can we find ways to heal ourselves, each other and society? How do we emerge from the grip of past trauma and discover joy and hope again? Trauma specialist Lou Lebentz talks to Anxiety Advantage host Yang-May Ooi about her work helping those affected by PTSD, addiction, psychosis and eating disorders to heal and thrive.

Please note

I am not an expert on anxiety. I have no medical or therapy-type qualifications. I am a writer – and like many people, I have struggled with anxiety. My purpose in these podcasts is to explore with curiosity how these very human feelings affect all our lives. Views expressed by my guests are entirely their own and do not represent my views. These podcasts come out of my personal experience and perspective – and I do not claim to speak for everyone who may be living with anxiety. The content of these podcasts is for informational purposes only.  If you are affected by anything in these podcasts, please seek the advice of your doctor or other qualified professional.
