Complex Trauma and C-PTSD: Frameworks That Changed My Life

Complex Trauma and C-PTSD: Frameworks That Changed My Life // Ever since I started my YouTube channel, I’ve been finding myself recommending a book that has nothing to do with psychedelics or meditation; but rather, C-PTSD. This leads me to believe that we’re all probably a little more traumatized than we think. In this video, I’m going to talk about why being cognizant of your trauma is a wonderful life hack. 😉
