What Led to the Specialization of Trauma?
Glenn talks about growing up in a safe and nurturing household though recognizing from a very early age the dysfunction all around, whether it was as a teacher and recognizing the suffering that students were going through, or witnessing comrades returning from war. These experiences served to inspire him to help others heal from trauma.
A Crucial Early Mistake
Glenn talks about the sense that we as healers need to realize that we don’t have all the answers and that we have to meet our clients and students where they are at.
