How to identify your emotional wounds so your future is no longer determined by your past.
Just as a poorly healed wound becomes a scar that leaves an indelible mark on the skin, some forms of trauma –like the kind suffered by children who are victims of repeated verbal abuse or neglect– have a long-term impact, leading to unnecessary suffering in later life.
With the help of psychiatrist Rosa Molina, we will find out what trauma really is –a single, devastating event that becomes a pivotal moment in someone’s life– and how to distinguish this from a microtrauma, a less severe emotional wound that nevertheless conditions a person’s life and how they relate to other people.
Doctor Molina explains the factors that make us more fragile in the face of suffering and emotional pain, how attachment helps to build resilient personalities, which character strengths we should work on, and how to build positive mental health so we can learn to cope with personal crises such as the loss of a loved one.
Your Microtraumas is a comprehensive guide that will teach you to shed the baggage of your past, take on the challenges of daily life, and help yourself and those around you.
