After we recorded our first episode, "Can You Really Ever Evict Trauma, or is it a Squatter that Will Live with you Forever?" Our special guest, Adaora Ezike from the Detroit Health Department brought up another strong topic, Trauma Bonding. Trauma Bonding is a psychological response to abuse. If we've never had the real help we need to confront the abuse we've dealt with in the beginning, we may find ourselves continually finding different people or situations that mimic the trauma we experienced.




Adaora Ezike is a Public Health professional using restorative and trauma-informed practices to inform population health interventions and foster community partnerships.
