What is Trauma & How Can We Heal?

In this session of #MentalHealthMonday, we will be joined by Haesue Jo of BetterHelp to explore:

  • What trauma is
  • Manifestations of trauma
  • Different forms of trauma (i.e. vicarious trauma and racial trauma)
  • How we can begin to recover from trauma
  • Online therapy as a trauma healing resource

Join us LIVE for a Q & A session following the presentation.

Her current clinical focus and interests include AAPI mental wellness, anxiety, relationship, and family dynamics, trauma, and gender identity. To practice self-care, she enjoys spending time with loved ones (including her dogs and cat), yoga & fitness, going to the aquarium, snowboarding in the winter, and seeing live music all year round.
