You Are Not Your Trauma Season 2 | Episode 10: Life Beyond the Trauma Identity

In this enlightening conversation, we explore 'trauma identity', a concept that is often formed due to the constant focus on trauma in our society. While acknowledging trauma is a crucial part of the healing process, an overemphasis can bind an individual to their past pain and inhibit growth and recovery.

I’m joined by Dr. Avgi Saketopoulou, a renowned psychoanalyst from New York and a respected faculty member at the NYU Postdoctoral Program in Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis. Dr. Saketopoulou brings a wealth of experience and a unique perspective to this enlightening discussion.

Topics discussed in this episode:

  1. Understanding Trauma Culture
  2. The Risks of Trauma Identity
  3. Navigating Trauma without Reinforcing Trauma Identity
