Show Notes

Do you find yourself repeating old, harmful patterns (or maybe you have a loved one that does)? It’s not always easy to acknowledge the truth behind why we do these things, but if you’re curious to learn more about past trauma and healing some of these patterns - this one’s for you! In today’s episode, Dr. Lee dives into trauma re-enactment - what it is & why it happens, how it could be showing up in your life, and some ways to move out of the space where you reenact traumatic experiences and instead find some post-traumatic growth. 

She’s exploring:

  • What trauma re-enactment is and why it might be happening with you or your loved one
  • Some common things that produce a lot of endorphins (and what this has to do with trauma re-enactment!)
  • One of the significant reasons why some people just can’t “get it together”
  • Acceptance vs. approval - and why understanding the difference is important
  • The 3 things we need from caregivers in these 5 areas
  • How to notice if you are in a trauma re-enactment 
  • And more!
