Trauma, Response, Memory
Last week, tornadoes caused much trauma and loss of life in the Midwest. FEMA has set up a base of operations in Fort Campbell, KY, including disaster recovery teams, search and rescue, 61 generators, 74K meals, and 135K liters of water (from an official FEMA email 12-13-2021).
This Sunday, we will explore how the mind processes trauma in psychological terms. What is selective memory and memory distortion? We will also cover Freud and his Trauma Theory, plus a poem by Wordsworth “The Thorn”. Very engaging reading material below. Please join StoicDan and Ellen Hurwitz this Sunday for this important discussion!
