Producer Sounds True summarizes:
"In this free video session, you'll learn about:
* A Closer Look at the “Fight-Flight-Freeze” Response - Why animals in the wild experience traumatic events all the time...
* “Ignore the Stress and Just Keep Pushing” - How our human thinking brain thwarts the survival brain’s natural ability to recover from stressful events and situations
* Corrupted Memory Capsules - Why unresolved traumatic memories can cause chronic anxiety, depression, insomnia, and other symptoms—as well as how we can resolve these memory capsules
* Reclaiming Your Ability to Thrive Under Stress - How to turn on your innate ability to recover and stop your thinking brain from overriding the process…and more."
Note - my old title - "Wild animals don't get PTSD but humans do. Why?" - does not reflect some research Dr. Stanley may not be aware of.
But her programs are designed to help us humans better understand and deal with stress and trauma.
