In this podcast, we interview world-renowned PTSD subject matter expert Dr. John A. King, a best-selling author of #dealwithit, star of numerous documentaries including the award-winning film, Light In The Darkness and founder of Give Them A Voice.
Get ready to strap on Heroes, this is a bit of a wild ride in that Dr. King tells it like it is when it comes to PTSD stigma and stereotypes around the nation and right where you are in Abilene. No holds barred in this conversation which addresses the stigma surrounding PTSD, the connection between childhood sexual abuse and how that relates directly to the Hero Community and increased risk for developing PTSD, how porn addiction (which is very common in the Hero Community) feeds into PTSD, and some best practices for building resiliency and recovering from trauma.
