What are tiny traumas and how do they impact our mental health with Dr Meg Arroll
On today's podcast, I am joined by Dr Meg Arroll, the author of Tiny Traumas, which is a book that explores all the small cuts and scrapes that occur to our psyche that can actually have a huge impact on how we feel and how we understand ourselves. But often these small things we don't even recognise because they can cause us so much emotional hurt. But we shrug them off because they seem too small to think about. We often will gaslight ourselves for caring about such small incidences, but actually, over time, these small events can build up and really have an impact on how we feel. So instead of pushing down these feelings, Dr. Meg shows us a way to embrace them and become more psychologically healthy in the process.
Dr. Meg is a chartered psychologist, a chartered scientist, an associate fellow of the British Psychological Society and has a Ph.D. in psychology. As Dr. Meg explains in her brilliant new book, life doesn't have to be full of tiny traumas weighing us down and there are tools and steps that can help us heal and thrive.
