Putting On Your Psychological Body Armor

Air Date: November 16, 2017


Terror attacks, church shootings, and hurricanes have become a part of our every day lives at home and around the world. On this episode of Living Well with Dr. Peg, researcher and disaster mental health expert, Dr. George Everly explains the profound physical and emotional consequences that disasters can have on us and how to develop resiliency, or the ability to bounce back from adversity.  The good news is that resiliency, or what Dr. Everly calls psychological body armor–and even resistance or immunity–can be learned. Safety expert, Michael Yorio also offers perspective on the recent shootings in Rancho Tehama, California.

Living Well with Dr. Peg is brought to you by SSI Guardian, Thursdays at 1 pm Mountain on KLZ 560 AM (simulcast on KLDC 1220 AM) and online at DrPegRadio.com. Encore Broadcast: Sundays at 10:30 am.
