So welcome friend to Consider Yourself Hugged episode 58: Today’s Hug: Trauma with Dr. Jenny Severson. Click here or pic to listen.
I’m Dr. Tami West, here every week to bring you tips on living a life that brings you mental and emotional wellbeing.
Earlier in the month, Jenny Severson was on the show teaching us about emotions (Click here for Episode 54.). Today, she's back, talking specifically about trauma. We recorded this before Coronavirus took the toll that it's taking, and I think the timing is perfect. Jenny talks about "little t" trauma vs "Big T" trauma. We are going through something together now that's more than we could have ever dreamed. I pray that her words speak to you today!
As always, for anything she would like for us to see, I'll post links at the end of the notes! Here's her bio, then a few suggestions for you today!
Dr. Jenny Severson’s mission is to add value, produce experiences that create gratitude and optimism. Jenny serves schools, corporations, churches, and speaks at conferences across the globe. Her focus on leveraging the inextricable interconnectedness of organizational and employee well-being to help transform workplaces and support people in integrating their personal and professional lives drives her passion.
Jenny has spent her career in education, speaking, presenting, coaching and training others for high-capacity results. Jenny is committed to improving the social and emotional skills, namely, gratitude, optimism, and empathy, which leads to skyrocketing performance, in workplace teams and collective efficacy. She is sought-after to help re-humanize classrooms, schools, and workplaces so that people are freed, fueled and inspired to bring their best selves to work – and home – each day.
