This conversation is a continuation from Episode 4–go back and listen to that one if you haven’t already. Once again, Derek and Rachel are joined by Liz, former SPED teaching and current counselor, to further discuss the impacts of trauma and the importance of self-awareness. We will also discuss book resources and things you can do right now to start your healing journey.
