Trauma: The Invisible Epidemic & How To Heal From It


In life, we all will experience some of the highest highs and lowest lows. We’ll have days where we just feel off, and days where we’re so happy that we want to break out into song and dance. While everyone has rough days, if you start noticing patterns in your behavior or triggers that cause you to feel one way or another — there’s a chance you might still need to address trauma you’ve experienced in order to fully heal. 

I know how difficult it can be to face your past trauma, but believe me, it’s worth the hard work. When you commit to working through it, you’ll free yourself from all that’s holding you back and will be able to grow into the very best version of yourself. 

Through years of research and firsthand experience, my guest today believes the root cause of most of our internal issues we face is neglecting our past trauma. And only by addressing it in therapy, thoughtful reflection, and self-care, will we be able to reach our full potential and experience the happy lives we all deserve. 

His name is Dr. Paul Conti and I’m SO excited to have him on the show! During our conversation, we discuss how our internal dialogue affects our mental health, what to know before seeing a therapist, how to heal from past trauma, and more. Please help me welcome the one-and-only, Dr. Paul Conti, to The School of Greatness!
