Helplessness with Dr. Galit Atlas
This is a vulnerable and memorable conversation with the incredible Dr. Galit Atlas about the fear of pain and the pain of being human. We discuss the impact of trauma from mass violence and the experiences of guilt, survivor guilt, and shame. Surviving mass violence or terrorism can result in a devastating feeling of helplessness. Dr. Atlas artfully shares the impact of this emotional state. Thank you, Dr. Atas for sharing your time.
