Trauma Chat Episode 01

Click here to download a transcript of this episode.

Hi! You might be here because you suspect that you are affected by trauma, or maybe someone you love experienced trauma and you want to understand how they feel so you can help them. Whatever brought you here, thanks for coming to this space!

Trauma can make you feel very isolated, wondering if anyone would understand if they knew how you feel, think and behave. If you have experienced trauma, you’re definitely not alone! More than 67% of adults have experienced some form of trauma or attachment wounds during childhood, according to the Adverse Childhood Experiences Study (more about that in a future episode of Trauma Chat!).

If you’re one of them, we want you to know that you’re in the right place. Use our website to learn more about trauma by reading our blog articles on trauma.

We recommend starting with this post: A Comprehensive Guide to Healing from Trauma in Therapy.

Welcome to the Trauma Chat Podcast with Laura Reagan, LCSW-C. I’m Laura, and I host a popular and long running podcast called Therapy Chat, which you can find here. T

herapy Chat was originally created with an audience of therapists and other helping professionals in mind, but anyone can listen and learn about the various therapies and strategies that can help individuals who have experienced trauma, loss, abandonment, betrayal, grief, abuse, relationship violence, other gender-based violence, community violence, war, and any of the other types of situations that can lead one to being traumatized.

Trauma Chat is different. Created by a therapist, (me), Laura Reagan, LCSW-C, this show teaches basic information that will help trauma survivors understand why they may feel the way they do.

I, too, am a trauma survivor and despite being a trauma therapist for over a decade, I didn’t realize some of the ways trauma was showing up for me (neither did my past therapists). So don’t feel bad if you’re in the same boat – especially if you’re not a trauma therapist! How could you know?

This is a podcast for anyone who wants to learn about trauma – what it is, how it shows up in our lives and how to heal. I created it to be brief and easier to digest than the longer conversations heard on Therapy Chat. When we are trying to learn about trauma, it is easy to become overwhelmed with all of the information.

Trauma is prevalent across the world, yet so often people don’t even realize they are affected by trauma. Trauma Chat is here to remind you that you are not alone, healing is possible, and help is out there for you.

Here’s the description of what’s included in this episode:

In this episode, you’ll hear host, Laura Reagan, LCSW-C ,  introduce herself and explain what the show is about and why she started this new podcast. 

Trauma Chat’s first season was released in 2021. Then I ran out of steam and haven’t been able to come back to it yet since I’m still producing my other podcast, Therapy Chat, weekly.

I also offer coaching, clinical consultation for therapists and a membership community for trauma therapists. This site also includes a searchable directory to help you find a therapist, (North America only as of July 2023 – UK options coming in late 2023!), additional resources for learning and training recommendations for therapists.
