According to Michele Rosenthal, host of ‘Your Life After Trauma’, "The sense of disconnection from oneself, family, community and even the world can be frightening and excruciating after a trauma. Too often anxiety and loneliness become 'the new normal'. Luckily, there are easy steps to combat and overcome these issues. The possibility of relief, and how survivors can themselves achieve that is what I expect to uncover in this show."
