12:40 He nailed it. A trauma-informed school system is absolutely necessary. That would reduce bullying and gun violence. Even the medical system should be built based on a trauma-informed system.

We also need trauma informed workplace. Because somehow adults are expected to be responsible of their lives and as grown up they should have already dealt with their trauma and healed.

That's why it's so hard for targeted individuals, cos 99.99% are so eager to dismiss them as "delusional" etc, so the top level abusers in power don't have to be acknowledged for their horrendous crimes.

If you haven't already, you may want to tell your Dr.. I saw more changes in my Dr and my care plan and more understanding from my primary care doctor.. after I told him I was a victim of an SA. I went to counseling before that, and she helped me get to the point I could tell my Dr. It matters. Good luck.

@ChellyVision @Chelly I'm so sorry. Never, ever give up. Keep changing dr until finding 1 that fits your needs. If it helps, I would strongly recommend educating yourself about your symptoms, and condition here on KZbin. Then, look up information for a local doctor, therapist, specialist, anything that you need in your area. Doctors are only people limited by their training programs and/or by their own personal experiences, curiosity and willingness to stay up to date with the latest developments. The greatest challenge in science, is that almost every month there is a new study, new research new discoveries.

I have a history of severe childhood trauma and read 'the body keeps the score' when it first came out in 2014. (A brilliant book) Videos like this are much needed as they shed light on a subject that is often shrouded in secrecy, bringing with it much needed understanding of the impact of trauma on sufferers as well as offering insight to those surrounding them.

If more doctors were like Dr. Rangan the world would quite literally be a different place. IT STARTS WITH EDUCATION, if more medical students were taught about trauma and how it relates to physical health and chronic pain I genuinely think that we could come to some kind of medium where patient and doctor are doing their best to work together. The medical system is literally fighting and penalizing traumatized individuals bc there is not enough education on the complexity of trauma, past and present, and how it can and will impact our health

The medical system doesn't just generally ignore trauma, it generally ignores nutrition also, I think the point that we admit the system has become focused on profit over healing has been crossed. The Dr may ask "Do You drink alcohol or take drugs?", but wouldn't a better question be, "Are You affected by anyone's use of drugs or alcohol in the home or in your relationships?" Is a diabetic patient tested for low potassium levels or are they just being put on insulin for life? We can do better but We better hurry up before People lose any remaining faith in allopathic medicine all together.

I have complex-PTSD from childhood trauma, and "The Body Keeps the Score" is a book that i believe everyone who has trauma should read. It helps explain why we react to the world in the way we do. What part of the brain is involved and why. It's definitely needed in conjunction with multiple therapies.

Would EMDR work for this? I feel like, since it targets a particular trauma rather than repeated ones, it may work for traditional PTSD but not CPTSD. Curious what your experience was/is!

Totally agree with all that is being discussed. I set up my own natural therapies safe place "a time for you" and I would only see one person on a day. Allowing them the whole day, as long as they needed, no cut off time this is crucial ; no limits. I created a therapy room that was like stepping out of this world, very serene, beautiful , along with peaceful calming music this helped people to open up and I would hear them say to me " I have never told anyone this before" !! and they would off load deep trauma, Then I would use aromatherapy massage, reflexology, healing to help to relax the body and mind. Then I would end each session with total relaxation with me talking them through their body ultra slowly and relaxing every muscle and creating a mind free of worry. Everyone seemed to leave walking on air it made me so happy to see.

The real tragedy here is that we don’t realize when someone is traumatized and we often make it worse by taking things personally but using this perspective our relationships would be changed. This talk had a greater impact up on me than reading the book 3 times. Thank you!

What is evil, cruel and ignorant about society is how most people blame the victims of traumatic events of having CPTSD & PTSD. That is like blaming a victim of a car accident or assault who ended up with broken limbs, and humiliating them for that limb not being whole and healthy, and for not walking/running within a year of that broken limb/s.

100%, I was diagnosed cptsd and later ptsd as everything compounded but as the doctor said based on how you're then treated can either ameliorate or increase the trauma further, for me it's the latter and I've gotten sick. Blaming people is abhorrent. Those who go through trauma and become narcissistic are the types who then perpetrate harm on others by blaming and shaming or ignoring or belittling others trauma because they lack empathy ✌

I was a victim of childhood trauma and a very troubled youth with a lot of drug abuse and sexual promiscuity. When I was a young a adult I experienced more abuse at the hands of very awful medical “professionals” when I began having children. I was pregnant 5 times and had 2 live births. My experiences were traumatic to say the least and wound up with fibromyalgia. I am now 67 and have been trying to find relief from the pain for so long I have resigned myself to live with it. Over the years of trying to find a cure I have experienced a lot of shrugs and dismissal of my ongoing issues. It wasn’t until I began exploring the impact of trauma with Dr Teitelbaum, Dr Van der Kolk, Thomas Hübl, Dr Gabor Mate and others. The memories of the trauma resurfaced and allowed me to step back from the pain and learn way to calm my nervous system and find some measure of healing. Thank you for your understanding, care and for sharing your knowledge. Now I am able to help children, youth and parents overcome their trauma especially inter generational trauma and how their families histories have impacted them. Thank you 🙏

As a social worker, 24:00 really resonated with me. The frustration caused by poor management, budget cuts and what I presume to be intentional obstructing in progress of beter treatment/care turns you bitter. Not everyone reacts that way, but I certainly do and it's led me to find a better paying, less stressful job. I came into the field with good intentions a bright, young man, and left bitter and disillusioned. I hope mankind can eventually ascend to a more inclusive, responsible society - only time will tell. I will focus my attention where I can make a difference, but hard work like dr. van der Kolk does will always be necessary to progress further.

@takeflight I have my own company. Still healthcare related, but I determine what jobs/challenges I accept and set my own rate and working hours/schedule. Not having to see the same people everyday has been a blessing in the sense of regaining hope for healthcare. Workers become hospitalized fast, so it’s important to keep a fresh perspective and try new things.

This idea that patients who make doctors react with anger and frustration are the traumatized patients, really made sense. In fact in life, those who seem to appear mean and cantancherous are likely unhealed trauma survivors. It helps me have compassion, as I run the other way. I wish I knew how to turn off my fear of these mean people so I could look at them with true compassion (instead of being automatically (re)activated by their sparks.

It’s okay that doc’s got frustrated with me- I just started reading and learning on my own . I took the advice of a smart lady about my hashimotos - and I change what i do with advice from my naturopathic doc - and my other docs - I think so much of my problem was my food sensitivities and leaky gut. I have realized I can’t just eat much - am trying more intermittent fasting and may cut lectins - and also may try keto - it’s all with consulting my docs too. I found better docs and better resources.

I agree, but preaching doesn't change people. Inform the system and academia. The problem is, when we do implement say "trauma informed care", it becomes a business, a gimmick. Telling people who don't care to care, doesn't work. It has to change from the bottom up. Or else it will be a gimmick,half assed. When enough middle class people know what's going on with trauma, eventually the elite might soften cause they have no choice. We, normal people must first spread the message to the common folk.

Jelly Belly Fun@ you can't train people to be honest and humble, that would be dishonest and not humble. They would imitate being humble, but that wouldn't be what we want? We need to be what we want others to be, if we do it kindly and they feel safe, they just mirror our behavior and spread that humbleness and honesty. This starts from childhood. We can't train dishonest people to be honest.

I have a friend who is fibromyalgia and the description of it here fits like Cindarella and her shoe. Oh my, I wish that this understanding of trauma will merge within our psyche and mutate us all into healing. Then we shall be capable of doing anything not to cause trauma to anyone. As a parent and a mother's help for a job, I see it daily how challenging it is to live a pure life where love dominates, making it possible to combat daily challenges of parenthood that present themselves due to our unique interpretation; but I am grateful to these kind of insights into the body that is the trauma, stress, anger, failure etcetera because they strengthen me in my job and enable me reduce suffering on a daily basis even tho it's just on the surface most of the time as they are deep rooted where I do not have what it takes to get to the bottom. I feel I help by restoring the moment and by not adding more to the grief. I hope that is what I archive.

AA has been doing group therapy for over 80 years now. It works for many, and if it doesn't it at least gives people a feeling of being accepted and understood on one point: being alcoholic. Knowing another can relate is priceless. Without that, the patient or client becomes the teacher, and that isn't what is needed. We can also mind the unintentional suggestion that medical professionals aren't susceptible to to the same challenges as everyone else.

Both of you have enormous professional courage to discuss the shortcomings of the medical system in dealing with trauma. Paradoxically, your discussion is also advancing the potential for the current medical system to treat trauma.

What Bessel describes here of how the doctors get mad at their patients, happened to me with several different doctors. Then I would go home and have so much distress it was unbearable. I searched and searched for answers because I didn't want to stay that way. I don't trust doctors anymore, I listen to my body. I found the answers to make myself well, the doctors only caused me more trauma and pain.

Regarding reasons trauma isn’t discussed: You don’t know anything is unusual. Our family consisted of my mother, a stepfather old enough to be my grandfather, my half-brother 9 years younger than me, and me. Absolutely NO other family. And no friends. My stepfather was so passive that we barely noticed him and my mother was emotionally abusive and would often punish me by ignoring my completely and ranting about my failures (no matter how small), and assigning blame regardless of my participation in something. I knew it hurt. I knew she was mean. But although it hurt, I had no reason at all to think it wasn’t just the way our particular was so unhealthy! And I had no one to help me escape, while my mother frequently told me I “could leave if I didn’t like it.” I grew up helpless and hopeless and consequently dependent. In fact I had no reason to think for myself because the only one who knew the rules was my mother, and she always won - even if it meant cheating.

Over the years one of the things I've been taught is that other people or situations don't "make me" react in any particular way. They are simply catalysts; potential triggers. No one can make me have a bad day, or be in a bad mood. The same with joy. It's all about how I choose to hold any moment, and the way I orient my life. Another bit to keep in mind is most of us westerners have to unlearn extreme independence. We've been raised with the goal of leaving home as quickly as possible (most of us) whether we're prepared or not. Failure to get out and have our own home is, well, failure. Now a few folks are seeing that exercising, watching movies, playing games, cooking 'together' is really great for health and mental well-being. Funny how easily that was all dismissed.

He is so right about the importance of having comfort , care, acknowledgement. My cptsd ruled my life, isolated me. Education by Bessel (and his likes) gave me hope, enlightment and empowered me to heal. Weened of my meds, and got clear to figure things out. Its not easy but worth every single babystep.

In many instances docs are also trained in medical school to be snide and dismissive of people reporting symptoms that do not match what the doctor expects. It takes a lot of confidence to be a doctor, but unfortunately many slip into arrogance.

A few thoughts here:1- Most of the time there is at least one upside to a darkside and I think we can spare a few if not many (darksides) by living a different life style as a society. 2- It is easier to raise strong children than to repair broken adults. 3- Behave toward others as you would like others to behave toward you. As a society if the golden rule would be culturally integrated rule things would be quite different among us, it would be also different also between most countries.

I agree that group therapies and social activities can be very helpful, but I think that a lot of caution and sensitivity has to be employed because engaging with others might be incredibly challenging for people. I think that a lot of people are going to need some preliminary work done with them individually to even prepare them for those social interactions that could be healing, but without preparation might end up being deeply upsetting. That's also where I see an immensely important role for technology to play. It can help people who cannot engage with others because of mental or physical barriers. Preferably it's going to only be a stepping stone to get out there and engage with people in real life, but I think it's very important to acknowledge that for example physical disability is a thing, and all of the methods mentioned in the interview are going to be made so much more complicated for disabled people. If trauma is an inability to move and act to improve your situation, then disability is going to have a huge potential to be inherently traumatizing - since it limits your options so much in so many aspects of life. But then if movement is healing, it's also going to make it so much harder to recover, both because the movement-based treatments might be inaccessible themselves, and because the locations and the communities where you can access other people to engage in them with might be inaccessible as well.

Absolutely. PTSD related trauma has generally nothing to do with emotional trauma caused by divorce or other life events although they might be very hurtful. PTSD is caused by acute traumatic events (rape, agression, car accident, …) which leaves the victime totally devastated. Nightmares, flashbacks, poor sleep, sleep apnea, neuronal hyper vigilance… I didn’t find the hosts questions very helpful.

I've been basically shewed out of or else a conflict occurred in all the appointments with doctors last year. They see auto immune signals but i feel their frustration and i get retraumatized again...And, long covid, which i have,, does this too to doctors and I'm sure the system is not prepared. I'm so isolated. And untrusting of everyone. I really don't want to feel this way and I'm taking steps to learn how to reconnect. Just slot of mental and emotional abuse from an early age from parents and siblings. Then a series of dysfunctional relationships. Life sure does require healing and many of us who learn to heal from trauma can help others, children and adults.

I am exactly the patient Dr Chatterjee describes at26:00ending, “I don’t want to stay like this forever.” Have been trying to find relief from my trauma symptoms since the Covid pandemic began (my feelings of vulnerability led me to reflect more closely on the impact past events had had on my life) and am coming to the conclusion that, after forty years in the dissociative state Dr Van de Kolkata talks about earlier, my chances of any significant healing are next to nothing. All I’m left with is the application of ‘sticking plaster’ solutions to assist me when my nervous system is overwhelmed. If you suffer catastrophic injury of any kind, you can’t expect to entirely recover.

Trauma is not only physical but also emotional and verbal but I also believe that it can be hereditary, in other words you can pass it on to your children, both from mother and father. Trauma is acquired from just living life because anything can be traumatic, JMO.

@Akshay Kumar I realized that the horrific nightmares, body memories and flashbacks that I was having on a daily basis were my allies, they were trying to help me. I was so afraid of these trauma effects that they grew in intensity. I tried to make them stop and I tried to avoid them. I have D.I.D and tried to deny all parts of myself that held trauma. I have now learned to stay with what is happening, kind of like surfing a wave. I'm a part of a whole system that was created for survival. The memories, sensations and emotions that had been dissociated are all coming back to all of us in our system so we can be whole. They are the the parts of what I experienced that I couldn't cope with. Our system is learning to accept and be the love that we are.

I have always been a huge fan of Dr van der Kolk and other’s like him, I have his book, "The Body Keeps Score," yet the title of this really caught my attention despite having been in intensive therapy for over 25 years. Mine was sexual abuse from a young age and as such the sequelae was rape later in life and then leading a life with no linear narrative and very little memory. In addition to that I incidentally had a rare spinal disease that required several major cervical spine surgeries in consecutive years. Although I never had any difficulty with the pain medication (because it revved me up and that was not how I survived) but the anxiety medication was and sometimes still is an issue. My safe place is literally sleeping in my swaets, hood up, under all my blankets and I really had difficulty even wanting to take my pain medication because I worried so much that I wouldn't be able to sleep if I needed to. I would be forced to turn to benadryl....years ago I would take so many benzodiazapines plus ambien plus benadryl....I'm surprised I'm alive. That's why the title struck me because occasionally I still have those days but have many more ways to try to deal with it first. Dr van der Kolk spoke at a women's specialized clinic in Washington State that sadly closed because of funding, but was an amazing place for many women around the nation. I wish we had more hospitals that dealt specifically with trauma. I believe there would be less suicide, less prisons needed, less addiction services.

I was waiting to see if they would mention the bilateral movement aspect of EMDR, which apparently is the fundamental reason of its effectivity, because the eyes move from one side to the other, engaging both sides of the brain. Thom Hartmann has a book called Walking your Blues Away which is excellent in so many respects, which Advocates simply walking, while processing a traumatic or disturbing event. This bilateral movement is instrumental in relieving stored stress and Trauma, and can be done by all of us on our own. He puts forth the effective protocol for doing it in the book, and I highly recommend it.

It seems things like yoga and breathing exercises also allow us to feel in control, showing me that I have agency and at least some power and strength. If I can choose how I breathe when I may not have any control over other reactions of my body, it shows there’s at least one thing I can affect the movement of the situation. It shows me I can do at least ONE THING! It starts to normalize and trust my own volition! 👍🏼 And the acting, I feel a sense of “I can do that? Hey! I can do that!” Or better yet, “So this is what it looks like!” 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼

I have medication, done some therapy but there's one over other helping tools for me. After reading many books and listening researchers like this doctor I found out that I can control anger and anxiety that comes from trauma by moving my body. If it's triggered suddenly I'll search for safe place/room and do some shadow boxing and/or walking movement with feet. And at the end cry and/or do breathing exercises. When I was younger I ran trying to do most on trails in woods but didn't know why. 🤔

Excellent video/interview, excellent. One thing I halfway agree with is that things like Prozac just numb out a person's brain/feelings/body awareness. Yes, in my experience, there is some numbing--like getting rid of intrusive thoughts so one can function (say, as a new mother) without horrific thoughts popping into mind all day long. But yes, one's libido can take a bit of a bit (but there are work arounds). I've seen antidepressants allow people to step into themselves (or out of the depression/anxiety/obsessions). Sometimes it's only Then that they can implement things such as breathwork, yoga and so on.

The comment around a culture of 10 hour Zoom days resonated with me. My work uses an online video call platform and for me taking a call via that platform is a traumatic experience. My body stiffens up, now my face too. The trauma therapist I worked with last year offers Zoom only sessions too. I sought help with my issue and my nervous system’s fright from calls but have not received any useful ones yet. I am not consciously scared of them, but the subconscious reaction and somatic symptoms that come from it is unpleasant to say the least. And it starts during the call and it is often there for the rest of that day. If anyone out there has dealt with this issue successfully please comment.

This is the first time I've ever heard another person have a like or similar reaction. I feel you ❤. You're braver than I because I never use camera on video calls. When ppl call, I get extremely angry (on the verge of tears) like I'm being assaulted or violated. I usually can't take the call the first round, and I have to call ppl back when I collect myself. Even if I'm in a good place to take the call initially, there is still a brief physical reaction (and eagerness to end the call). I've been very fortunate in my career because I'm in contracts, so I can always opt for written communication. Stay strong.

Hi Dr Rangan & Dr Bessel, great podcast, can you have a discussion next time on sexual abuse and generational abuse because I feel that Ireland is very behind the times in understanding this topic. I have research on many adults who have been sexually abused but wish not to gain help for it because they may be viewed as a risk to children & young people. The men feel that they will also be viewed as gay and will never tell even their wife even though they have trauma symptoms that greatly effect their lives. I believe that this stigma has prevented a better health system here in Dublin and our mental & physical health professions need help with interpreting the evidence on sexual abuse. NOT all people will go on to sexually abuse the next generation, I truly believe its a choice and not a need, if a person had a trauma from a car crash they would hardly go around driving into people that are in smaller cars, its a ridiculous accusation that these traumatised people dont deserve, they deserve a better health care system that has a responsibility to educate themselves further, especially if the abuse had been reported when they were children and they were not believed or gaslighted by people who were supposed to protect them.
