Silver Linings Growth Book: Transforming and Transcending Trauma with Dr Edith Shiro

Podcast about silver linings and how to transform trauma with Edith Shiro, sponsored by SKIMS and Nutrafol

The effects of trauma for those who endure it vary widely from person to person. Why are some able to use their traumatic experiences as a springboard for personal growth to lead fulfilling lives, and others become trapped by the injustice and are unable to escape the emotional, physical, and spiritual weight of it? To discover more about the aspects of post-traumatic growth and how it can offer a greater appreciation for life, improved relationships, and spiritual awakenings, Positive Psychology Podcast Host Lisa Cypers Kamen speaks with clinical psychologist and author, Dr. Edith Shiro. Dr. Shiro describes, in detail, strategies from her book, The Unexpected Gift of Trauma: the Path to Post-Traumatic Growth. She also shares frameworks for transforming and transcending trauma on personal and collective levels.
