Today on the podcast, I’m very excited to have Sarah Peyton back.

Sarah’s joined me previously in episode 260, and she’s been a contributor to the Master Class series in my membership community, Trauma Therapist | 2.0. 

This interview is a first with The Trauma Therapist | Podcast.

In this interview, (the first of 3 in a series), Sarah leads us in an introduction to the 8 neurological circuits (eg, happiness, disgust, and seeking, to name just a few) that were initially introduced by the late Estonian neuroscientist, Jaak Panksepp.

Sarah talks about how these different circuits are impacted and influenced by trauma, what’s involved with treating them, and how clinicians can learn to identify whether or not they’ve been impacted.

Today, in episode #1, we talk about rage.

A huge thank-you to Somatic Experiencing® Trauma Institute (SETI) for sponsoring this podcast and helping me keep this thing moving forward!!

Trauma may be a fact of life, but it doesn’t have to be a life sentence.

Somatic Experiencing is a psychobiological method of addressing clients’ physical and emotional trauma conditions, and helps to give voice to their experiences without a need for them to retell the story.

Sarah is Certified Trainer of Nonviolent Communication and teaches people how language changes relationship and the brain. She works with audiences internationally to create a compassionate understanding of the effects of relational trauma on the brain, and writes about and teaches people how words change and heal us.

Her special interest is the way that difficult events impact our automatic brain patterning, and how to transform our tendencies toward self-criticism into self-warmth. Her first book,“Your Resonant Self: Guided Meditations and Exercises to Engage Your Brain’s Capacity for Healing,” is out from Norton Publishing.
