Our New Look and Content!
Welcome! I'm Diana, the founder of our Trauma Talk Blog and Podcast. I have dedicated my life to understanding trauma, to supporting those who have struggled with its often debilitating effects and to helping everyone – including myself find a way to make peace with our past, to move forward by making meaning out of even our most traumatic experiences.
Let me introduce my good friend, Jan, our dedicated business partner, writer, and editor. We have been friends for 25 years. We have worked together professionally in business.
And we have worked together as volunteers, in our role as nationally certified mental health educators. ​
Together, we created this blog series because we are parents with lived experience, that is, we are parents who we have seen our loved ones and the people in our lives suffer from the anguish and havoc that trauma-related experiences can inflict. 

So this mission is also our passion.
OUR BLOG SUPPO​RTS YOU

What Is Trauma?
Trauma is a person’s emotional response to a distressing experience. Few people can go through life without encountering some kind of trauma. Unlike ordinary hardships, traumatic events tend to be sudden and unpredictable, involve a serious threat to life—like bodily injury or death—and feel beyond a person’s control.
