Dr Tracey Shors In Conversation With David Malone

Contrary to popular belief, trauma is not only caused by a singular extreme event; it can also build cumulatively from everyday life experiences. How can we protect our brains and build resilience?

Traumas both large and small are a part of life we can’t control – but we can change the way we respond to them.

Distinguished neuroscientist Tracey Shors has dedicated her life to explaining how the mind and body respond to stressful events we can’t control – from difficult childhoods to bereavements, stressful jobs to pregnancy. Some dissipate with time; while other, long-term stresses – like the experience of the pandemic – can change the structure of our brains.

Now, drawing on years of research into the long and short-term effects of stress and trauma, she joins How To Academy to share a simple and impactful solution for strengthening our resilience and improving difficult symptoms.

In this livestream event, Tracey will share her research-based brain training method that anyone can do at home, designed to help you process personal trauma from your past, reverse your symptoms and strengthen your resilience for everyday stressors in your future.
