SAN CLEMENTE, Calif., Jan. 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- "In Your Right Mind," a weekly behavioral health radio program that features in-depth roundtable discussions of today's behavioral health headlines, aired an impactful new show, "Trauma." The program, which explored Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and the short- and long-term effects of trauma, aired Sunday, Jan. 15, at 5 p.m. PST on Talk Radio 790 AM KABC in Los Angeles. "In your Right Mind" is co-hosted by Program Producer Kristina Kuestner and Chief Executive Officer of Sovereign Health, Dr. Tonmoy Sharma, who provides in-depth medical and clinical expertise.
Sunday's panelists included Peter A. Levine, Ph.D., developer of Somatic Experiencing; Susanne S. Drury, Ph.D., consulting psychologist for Sovereign Health of Chandler; and Silouan Green, a panelist who educated the audience on his PTSD experience and how treatment helped him recover.
"Think of trauma as a cancer. Trauma can start with a small little tumor, and then it metastasizes. When this occurs, people begin to experience depression, they start to shut down, and have agoraphobia, which is the fear of leaving the house," said Dr. Levine. "These feelings don't diminish over time, and sometimes they become more evident."
"When trauma impacts your life, it's all-consuming, and you begin to define yourself by that trauma," said Mr. Green. "I was in a jet crash in the Marine Corps, and even though I was a young man with my whole life ahead of me, I thought my life was over. I would look at myself in the mirror and see a broken person."
One factor that differentiates Sovereign Health from other treatment providers is its ability to offer separate mental health and addiction/dual diagnosis treatment programs at its facilities. For more information, visit www.sovhealth.com.
