"Navigating the Mind -

By this we usually mean exposure to an incident or series of events that are emotionally disturbing or life-threatening, with lasting adverse effects on the individual's functioning and mental, physical, social, emotional, and/or spiritual well-being.

Today we had a little look at the meaning of trauma through a general semantic lens, and see how we can apply GS principles and strategies to best effect.
