The Secret Suffering: How Trauma Affects the Brain
Michele Rosenthal joins Seaview Radio with her new show “Your Life After Trauma” Thursday nights at 7- 8PM EST.
For so many who suffer in silence there is now a radio program (the first in the market) that addresses and offers assistance for survivors of trauma and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). PTSD causes range from natural disasters to terrorism, war, medical dramas, domestic violence, sexual and child abuse. The PTSD survivor crowd is large, diverse, global and always growing.
Michele Rosenthal’s first show airs live on May 12, 2011 on 95.9FM, 106.9FM, 960AM and online at www.seaviewradio.com with the topic “How Trauma Affects The Brain”. Michele will have two well respected experts as her guests: Rachel Yehuda, PhD, and Dave Ziegler, Ph.D., L.M.F.T., L.P.C. (additional information below) .
Chet Tart, General Manager of Seaview Radio states, “We are so pleased to have Michele Rosenthal joining the Seaview family. With so many servicemen returning with PTSD, plus those who have endured trauma, it is heartwarming to know they will now have a program where they can find comfort and solutions for living with this debilitating disorder.”
Since Michele Rosenthal struggled with PTSD she is the ideal candidate to address issues related to trauma and symptoms of posttraumatic stress. More information on Michele and her efforts can be found at www.healmyptsd.com.
We hope you will help in spreading the word about this wonderful show so that those who suffer with PTSD will no longer have to suffer in silence.
