If you’ve overcome trauma as a child, like superheroes, you have your own origin story–an event or a circumstance that sets you on a desperate and courageous path. It also forces you to acquire specialized survival skills. Remarkably, 75% of Americans face a life changing adversity before the age of 20. The headlines today scream with the impacts of these events as those who were abused come forward or retreat into a haze of drugs and destructive behavior. Dr. Meg Jay has looked at the coping and overcoming mechanisms used by so many in our society in her book, ‘Supernormal: The Untold Story of Adversity and Resilience’. She joins us to provide hope and inspiration that these events do not have to limit our futures and, in fact, may unleash our full potential.
