Tune in to the second episode in this two-part series as Sabin Fernbacher and Louise Newman build on their previous conversation and explore in more depth, the complex inter-relationship between family violence and mental health; and trauma and mental health.
Join them as they identify the potential significant social, developmental and mental health costs on adults, families, children and, in fact, communities that experience trauma. Hear as they describe diagnosis as a form of ‘shorthand’ and how diagnosis, in and of itself, doesn’t describe how the experience of trauma, poor attachment, repetition of dysfunctional maladaptive relationships, complex trauma and/or relational trauma has impacted.
This episode is a must-listen for mental health professionals looking to better understand the impact of family violence on mental health.
