Brennan C. Mallonee, LMHC • Individual Counseling in Cambridge, MA

I’m so pleased to share this timely article with my input on how to manage trauma related to the news. In a world of 24/7 cable news networks and vast access to news at our fingertips, it’s easy to get overwhelmed. We can start to experience trauma symptoms relating to the endless stream of violent and frightening news stories, or our histories of personal trauma can get triggered by what we read or witness on the news.
