Navigating Trauma Understanding PTSD and Recovery
Feb 28 2024
Navigating Trauma Understanding PTSD and Recovery
During and after a traumatic incident, it's common to experience fear. Our body's instinctual "fight-or-flight" response kicks in, initiating rapid changes to protect us from danger or help us avoid it altogether. While most individuals will naturally recover from the range of reactions following trauma, some may continue to struggle, leading to a diagnosis of Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). PTSD can manifest in those who have undergone shocking, frightening, or hazardous events, reshaping the trajectory of their lives.On this week's episode of the Shann Zeeman show, we welcome Linda Stanley, a retired Air Force Officer who served as a trauma nurse during her deployment to Iraq in 2006. Linda brings a wealth of experience, having previously worked in an emergency psychiatric clinic specializing in the assessment and treatment of PTSD. Currently, she serves as a psychiatric nurse practitioner at a residential treatment facility dedicated to aiding Veterans, particularly those returning from the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan, on their path to recovery. Linda's unwavering commitment to assisting individuals grappling with PTSD is evident in her national speaking engagements on the subject, addressing various professional groups.For further information about this interview, Please use this URL for more in-depth information: Navigating Trauma: Understanding PTSD and Recovery Become a supporter of this podcast: https://www.spreaker.com/podcast/the-most-important-15-minutes-of-your-day--4645262/support.
Daily Habits for Women
Apr 28 2021
Daily Habits for Women
Situational awareness in the everyday world is not about paranoia. It is not keeping your head on a constant swivel, looking for a threat. It is practicing being mindful and present in your daily life. The more you work on listening to and trusting your intuition, the more you will discover quiet confidence that you DO know your surroundings.Our guest this week, Kelly Sayre, believes all women can learn how to be more situationally aware to keep themselves and their loved ones safe. She took self-defense classes, firearm safety courses and browsed all the tools marketed to women to carry for their protection- but what she couldn’t find was someone talking to women about how to spot a potentially dangerous situation BEFORE it happened. That is when her company, The Diamond Arrow Group, was born. An arrow through a diamond symbolizes “courage moving forward” and her mission is to help women build their confidence so they can move forward and live life on their own terms. Kelly is a life-long learner and has been researching and studying resources on situational awareness for years. She is an endorsed 500rising instructor. She took all that knowledge and created training, keynote presentations, and one-on-one coaching programs, with the everyday woman in mind. She draws on her vast research and knowledge to help women understand how to use life skills they already have, for their personal safetyFor more information and Contact: https://bit.ly/3nsW77hBecome a supporter of this podcast: https://www.spreaker.com/podcast/the-most-important-15-minutes-of-your-day--4645262/support.

How To Hide When Faced With An Active Shooter

Run, Hide, Fight

Run, Hide, Fight
We all have run away from danger, something scary, or even when we play. But in an active shooter event, RUN is as much mental as it is physical. When we are faced with a shooting it is a surprise, the threat is unknown, and these issues cause us to have problems most people haven’t experienced. Have you ever heard of using the manta RUN HIDE FIGHT for an active shooter event? Sounds easy right? Believe me, when you are faced with an active shooter, like my husband and I were, it is the last thing you might think of unless you have a plan already thought out. That is why in the next few months, Troy and I are going to break down each component of RUN, HIDE, FIGHT to help you assess and make a plan to help save your life. Today we are going to talk about RUN and share what to look for when making your plan of escape.Our guest this week is Detective Troy Zeeman who has been in Law Enforcement for over 25 years with many different assignments such as Patrol, Gang Units, and Traffic Investigations.
