Season 5, Episode 13: Trauma shows up in our bodies and our brains, having both a mental and physical impact. The long-term effects of trauma can even include changes in the brain, impacting memory, mood, and cognitive skills. Today we speak with MBH Senior Fellow Dr. Bessel van der Kolk about trauma and how early intervention can help decrease violence and incarceration rates.
