‘Your Life After Trauma’ Radio: How Siblings Are Affected By Trauma

Listen live to Your Life After Trauma

I watched my brother deal with the aftereffects of my trauma, so I’ve seen firsthand how a survivor’s experience can impact a sibling. How siblings manage, cope and heal their own secondary trauma wounds is a topic we don’t discuss enough. My hope is that focusing on this subject will raise awareness for this aspect of trauma so that more siblings get the support they need and in this way entire families overcome trauma together.

My guests this week:

Professional Humanist Coach
Ari Hahn, LCSW
, started his career in the 1970’s helping soldiers in the Israeli Defense Forces negotiate the difficulties of military service. The 80’s were dedicated to children and families and in 1987 he returned to the USA and attained an MSW and license in NY and NJ. He completed training in family therapy in the 90’s and since 1998 has specialized in working with adolescent and adult survivors of childhood trauma. From this work he realized that spouses, siblings and families of survivors often need a different paradigm than the survivors themselves. Building on a strengths based approach, developed while working with the survivors, he helps people integrate individual and family positive traits with healing to promote thriving and flourishing lives. He uses both on-line therapy and coaching modalities which allows for maximum flexibility to the needs of the clients. In addition to his therapy and coaching he is a full professor of psychology at TCI College in NYC.


Marie Rosado

Marie Rosado
 became passionate about advocating for PTSD awareness after a traumatic event in her life two years ago. She started a blog to connect with others and to offer resources she did not have when both her sister and she were diagnosed. She is interested in studying Post Traumatic Growth to better understand the process of recovery from PTSD.
Marie is a graduate student of public health with a background in psychology; focusing her research and work on improving access to quality care for trauma survivors and advocating to increase information on trauma recovery. She hopes to bring awareness to the issues surrounding sexual assault and treatment for trauma through her writing, advocacy and research.
Marie is currently working on finishing a memoir, Waiting for Sunrise, about her experience as a secondary survivor of trauma, and the transformative journey of healing through tragedy.
