Media Emotional Trauma, Human Connection, and the Quest to Heal
Many of the most complex elements of trauma aren't often discussed. The emotions generated from these experiences can be so damaging and difficult to comprehend that they prevent us from finding the words to describe it. We isolate and keep it to ourselves as a result. This usually isn't intentional, but rather subconscious.
Josh found a way to break through these barriers on stage. To write the book and develop his talks, he intentionally sat with his darkest demons for years until he found the words to describe them in ways that would be both beneficial and productive for people struggling with the same.
