Episode 85: Coping & Trauma with Brenda Feehery

brenda feehery

Listen Online:


How do each of us cope with trauma?  Brenda’s story is remarkable for many reasons.  She is a former Div 1 softball player and hockey mom with two kids who endured a day most people only experience in their nightmares.   She shares how she got through it, where she is at today and the role athletics played in honing her mental toughness.  Paul also reads some very intense survey responses covering a variety of ways people cope with trauma.    Not a light episode, but hopefully illuminating.
