Interviewer: Mickey Sperlich, PhD
Monday, August 26, 2019, 9:33:26 AM
In this episode, Dr. Judith Herman discusses research on justice from the perspective of trauma survivors, how this is related to the #MeToo movement, and why individuals who are victims of abuse choose to speak out. She considers the progress and relevance of changes within DSM-5 PTSD diagnostic criteria, how chronic shame is related to dissociation and PTSD, and the consequences of forming an insecure attachment. The episode concludes by providing examples on how resilience can be built through community-based interventions and lead to more secure attachments.
