Breaking the Cycle: Navigating PTSD and Seeking Help with Psychologist Dr. David Bonanno

In this week’s episode, I am joined by Dr David Bonanno, psychologist, author, and inventor of De-Adrenalizing Therapy. With over 13,000 patients under his belt, Dr. Bonanno is a trusted expert in the field of psychology, specializing in trauma recovery.

Dr. Bonanno’s groundbreaking work has led to the invention of De-Adrenalizing Therapy, a unique approach to trauma recovery that uses eye movement therapy to alleviate the physical and emotional symptoms of trauma. This approach has been met with great success and has helped countless individuals overcome their trauma responses.

In his book “Your Brain is a Robocat,” Dr. Bonanno shares his expertise in trauma recovery and explains how we can understand our own trauma responses. Dr. Bonanno’s approach to trauma recovery is revolutionary and has helped individuals from all walks of life overcome their trauma responses and live happier, healthier lives.

In addition to his book and public speaking engagements, Dr. Bonanno also offers consulting services to businesses and organizations. His expertise in trauma recovery and eye movement therapy can be applied to a wide range of industries, helping organizations better understand the impact of trauma on their employees and customers.
