Podcast #13: Trauma, PTSD, and Breast Cancer with Ashley Moore, MS, LMFT

In this episode, Ashley Moore, MS, LMFT joins us to continue our understanding of the emotional healing that accompanies a breast cancer diagnosis and/or treatments. We discuss trauma, how it relates to breast cancer, and how post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) can also develop. Ashley helps us better understand what the signs and criteria are for PTSD and what women can do when faced with this additional challenge. She also discusses her new course, “Making Lemonade”, and explains how it can help women (no matter their breast cancer diagnosis or prognosis) learn the strategies and tools needed to heal emotionally.
