This week’s guest is Wendy D’Andrea, a professor of psychology at The New School in New York, where she specializes in trauma and psychobiology. She also works with Bessel van der Kolk (The Body Keeps the Score) at The Trauma Research Foundation as its Chief Science Officer.

Wendy’s career began early, working with sexual assault survivors. She has gone on to become a researcher of extraordinary breath, having studied widely across the psychobiological effects of trauma to a panoply of trauma treatments at the individual and community levels.

We discuss:

  • Her challenging childhood as a carer
  • Working with assault survivors
  • Trauma-informed sports
  • Psychedelics and integration
  • The psychobiology of trauma
