Changing Direction Radio

A show about creating change after trauma; why and how to do it.

“Thanks for your … show each week. I am finding a take away each time. Your guests have interesting and diverse perspectives. I am new to your site but have found a lot of great information in your archives… Have a wonderful holiday. You have been the best present I could have wished for.” – H.G.

If your life has gotten to a point where you’re feeling overwhelmed by posttraumatic stress and symptoms, stuck, stalled or just plain tired of feeling bad it’s time to think about changing direction.

Sometimes you want a clinical perspective, and sometimes you just want to hear the way it is from a survivor’s point of view. On this program we cover a wide spectrum of topics designed to help you turn yourself around and get headed for healing in the right direction.

With guests from backgrounds that include self-help, mental health, trauma, motivation and inspiration, I interview experts and everyday people about what it takes to heal trauma and move forward with your life. Guests include civilian and military survivors and professionals sharing their unique perspectives on how to quell the chaos and take positive steps toward change, plus leaders in the fields of self-help, inspiration, motivation, science, trauma, recovery, and personal development.

In an effort to bring you even more ideas for how to reduce and manage stress, depression, mood swings, nightmares, insomnia, sadness, anger, grief and pain, plus redefine who you are and reclaim how you live every week we invite professionals and/or survivors to discuss a topic specific to your life after trauma.

Changing Direction airs Wednesdays, 2pm EST/11am PST, with guests whose expertise will give you ideas, skills, tools and resources for how to heal after trauma.
