Parenting Impossible – The Special Needs Survival Podcast


Nov 16, 2022

Guest Jennifer Fraser, PhD founder of The Bullied Brain shares what she has learned about the resilient nature of humanity as well as damaging impact of abuse and bullying on the brain.  She sees brain science as the key to helping people heal from abuse.  When we are subjected to a repeated cycle of abuse or bulleying, our minds and bodies start to feel anxious about a threat from a preditor, which activates the sympathetic nervous system without our decision-making process. We are unaware of the automated response of our bodies and brains to threats, and unless we develop strategies to manage this stress, we suffer dramatic impacts on our health. However, if we keep our brains healthy and safe, our brains can be powerful and effective.
