Down The Rabbit Hole during COVID-19

Brain Injury Radio Show

Kim and Caren discussed, reaching out and staying connected during this difficult time in our history. We discussed tips and ways to stay connected.

We took callers .. Interested in hearing how our listeners are coping with the “New World” and their thoughts, fears, feelings.

This show is a gathering place for anyone seeking recovery from the challenges of life on life’s terms. We discuss useful tools that have helped us lighten the load, of our journey through recovery. This is a “we” recovery program, because it is in the “we,” that we find the new “me.”

We focus on the four A’s of Recovery: Awareness, Acceptance, Action and Adaptation. This is a place for survivor’s striving to become thrivers, which takes a large dose of Warrior!

The Cost of Social Trauma vs. Personal Trauma

braininjuryradiobanner
I had the opportunity to co-host an online radio show LIVE.
 
We discussed “The Cost of Trauma on Recovery Now”.  We were covering the cost Social Trauma vs Individual Trauma and shared a dialogue about our views and defining of terms regarding Trauma.
 
Something we didn’t have an opportunity to cover is the generational movement of folks not wanting to have kids at all or build their own families due to the potential exposure to Trauma, violence, or the eroding of society, our humanity, and the environment as a whole and how the current Trauma’s and experiences in our societies are impacting the future of humanity.  It is imperative that as a collective consciousness we develop and implement ways to reduce, recover , and or eradicate as much Trauma as possible.

Brain Injury Radio – Caren Robinson

Well I did something magnanimous this past Wednesday evening.  I had received an invitation to be interviewed on Brain Injury Radio by Kim Justus.

I took the plunge, and embraced the opportunity to share some of my experiences over the course of the last 5 years in regards to bringing awareness to Polytrauma and Traumatic Brain Injury on a International Radio Show.  How exciting to be a part of something so deeply personal, meaningful, and far reaching.

Check it out…take a listen and leave a comment below.  Let me know if there was anything on there you could relate to.  Feel free to share this link with anyone you think would benefit from hearing its content. I’d love to get your feedback!!!
