Two major challenges during my PTSD recovery were how to maintain my relationship while I was healing (how do you stay connected to someone else while you’re in turmoil yourself???) and how to make decisions that led to certain follow through. Wow, that’s a lot to juggle!
My guests for this week’s episode of YOUR LIFE AFTER TRUAMA have ideas to make it all easier.
This week’s show will address:
1) How couples can strengthen and protect their relationship while dealing with trauma with the authors of HEALING TOGETHER, Suzanne Phillips and Dianne Kane
2) How you can make committed decisions that stick and succeed with executive coach and creator of The Butterfly Code, Mike Blackstone
The show airs tonight, Thursday, December 1st, 7-8pm EST on Seaview Radio in Florida, 95.9FM/106.9FM/960AM. If you’re not local you can listen by clicking on the LISTEN LIVE button at the top of this post!
