The Purpose of Emotions with Psychologist Tara Hicks
Tara mentioned that each of us experience a varying degree of hardship over a lifetime. When this hardship evokes emotion that is too intense for us to handle it can cause emotional injury to the brain. This emotional injury is known as trauma. Trauma falls into one of two categories, including little ‘t’ traumas (disruption to a healthy bond between a parent and a child, loss of a significant relationship, bullying, harassment, or other non-life-threatening events) and Big ‘T’ traumas (abuse, neglect, violence and other life-threatening events).
