Recovery from trauma and PTSD is an especially vital topic these days. Trauma is emotional stress that can stem from a wide variety of upsetting experiences, leaving us feeling anxious, weighed down by negative emotions or memories, or feeling like we lack security. No one's experience and recovery from it is the same. In Traumatized: Identify, Understand, and Cope with PTSD and Emotional Stress, licensed therapist and YouTube creator Kati Morton, LMFT shares a unique perspective on trauma in the modern age.
Traumatized is an accessible guide to understanding what trauma is, how PTSD is diagnosed, being aware that it can have a late onset, what can happen if it goes untreated, and how social media can be triggering our trauma. Morton reveals how social media can positively promote mental health awareness, as well as the dark side of how social media can spread trauma.
Morton is a licensed marriage and family therapist in private practice in Santa Monica, CA. Over the past decade she has leveraged social media to share mental health information worldwide through her videos. Morton’s YouTube channel has over one million subscribers and more than 80 million views.
Morton will be in conversation with Kelsey Darragh, a comedian, filmmaker, and mental health advocate living in Los Angeles. With over 250 million views on her anxiety videos, Darragh’s quickly become the “big sister” of mental health on the internet.
This event will be recorded and available later on the FAN website and our YouTube channel.
