I recently interviewed Katie Mansfield for the podcast, Mental Horizons. Our chat was focused on strategies for trauma resilience. Most of my family and friends are feeling the effects of chronic stress, with the global pandemic well underway for several weeks now. Learning to spot the signs of chronic stress, distress, and trauma in yourself and others is the first step towards building resilience.
Katie is the lead trainer at Strategies for Trauma Awareness and Resilience at the Center for Justice and Peacebuilding. Please listen to my episode with Katie and then check out the chronic stress self-check I created, below. This list is based off of resources that you can find on the STAR website.
