The impact a traumatic event has on a person can be significant and lifelong. The experience is different for each and every person.

Alison Knowles joins Dale for today’s emotive podcast ‘Trauma’, which discusses traumatic life events, such as loss, so may be a trigger. We can’t change what happened but we can change how we feel about it now. Reliving an event will only take you back to that event time and time again. If we can reframe the emotion that we attach to that event we can stop it hurting us again and again. 

Alison takes us through how to give a safe space for someone to voice what’s going on without judgement. Some great tips we can all takeaway and implement to not only support children through traumatic experiences, but also our friends and family.

Listen to find out how to help change the emotions and beliefs following trauma and help them to move on.
