Podcast Link: Robert Scaer on understanding the brain, and what happens in stress and trauma. | Proactive Change Podcast

Posted on August 5, 2011


One of the things I like to do and is part of the purpose of the Proactive Planning project is to provide information and resources not typically available in the mainstream mental health areana.

Today I would like to offer this podcast link to an 30 minute audio on the Podcast Blog, Proactive change.

Below is an excerpt from the podcast page introducing Robert Scaer and his topic on understanding the brain and the connection to what we have come to call “mental illness”.

From the blog, Proactive Change:

In this conversation, Dr Scaer gives an overview of how the thinking brain and the emotional brain interact, and what happens in stress and trauma.

Robert Scaer, M.D., is Board Certified in Neurology, and has been in practice for 36 years, 20 of those as Medical Director at the Mapleton Rehabilitation Center in Boulder, CO.   More recently he has pursued the study of traumatic stress and its role in emotional and physical syndromes and diseases. Now retired from clinical medical practice, he writes and lectures in the field of traumatology.

He has published two books for professionals: The Body Bears the Burden: Trauma, Dissociation and Disease (2001 & 2007), and The Trauma Spectrum: Hidden Wounds and Human Resiliency (2005).  He is currently writing a book for the general public, about understanding the brain and trauma, to be published by Norton in early 2012.
