Dr. Jenny King is a licensed social worker who focuses on trauma and is the co-director of the Center on Trauma at Case Western University in Cleveland. She is the mother of 3 and her and her husband unschool their children.
In this episode, we focus on stress and trauma and the importance of play as adults. We talk about moving away from surviving and actually thriving after trauma and how we can work to calm anxiety in everyday life through these simple micropractices that Jenny has developed.
I hope that this is an insightful conversation to help you in your everyday life and also in your parenting!
