Ep. 29 Women in Strong Leadership: Trauma - What We Can Do Now with Gretchen Schmelzer, PhD

Ep. 29 Women in Strong Leadership: Trauma - What We Can Do Now with Gretchen Schmelzer, PhD

Journey Through Trauma


Dr. Gretchen Schmelzer, PhD has worked hard for twenty-five years to “change the conversation about trauma, growth, and development for individuals, groups and organizations.”

As she says on her website, “Healing From Trauma is Possible - Healing is Brave - No One Heals Alone.”

Shannon Giordano https://serendipitysocialmedia.com/ thank you for introducing us to each other!

I consider this interview and conversation to be one of the most important episodes covered in the series I’m doing here, “Women in Strong Leadership.”

Visit the episode notes for the link to Gretchen’s website, and there you’ll find articles, blogs and videos including the March 2020 interview on CNN's Anderson Cooper titled “How to cope with anxiety and stress linked to coronavirus pandemic.”

This episode “could” be considered a bit of an update to that conversation.

After listening to this episode, and when you find it useful because I’m sure you will, please share it with others you care about, family, friends, or co-workers. It’s important. And please pick up her book: Journey Through Trauma from her website.

Trauma and “What We Can Do Now” is What Has My Attention.
