Season 2 : Episode 10 Life Beyond The Trauma Identity 

In this enlightening conversation, we explore 'trauma identity', a concept that is often formed due to the constant focus on trauma in our society. While acknowledging trauma is a crucial part of the healing process, an overemphasis can bind an individual to their past pain and inhibit growth and recovery.

I’m joined by Dr. Avgi Saketopoulou, a renowned psychoanalyst from New York and a respected faculty member at the NYU Postdoctoral Program in Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis. Dr. Saketopoulou brings a wealth of experience and a unique perspective to this enlightening discussion.

After his life was torn-apart in a car crash at the age of 5, James has spent over 3 decades piecing his life back together from scratch after doctors didn't think he'd survive. James's healing journey has taken many twists and turns which have included other near-death experiences. All of this has shaped James into who he is today, helping other people get their lives back after trauma.
