The Business of Healing Trauma: Dr. James Gordon – Director of the Center for Mind-Body Medicine

The challenge of addressing and healing trauma is no longer just contained to the medical world. Perhaps more so than ever before, we can now see the effects of trauma in every aspect of our daily lives. For businesses and the people who lead them, there is now a greater responsibility to step forward and help employees live more full and productive lives, by providing tools to help cope with obstacles big and small. Dr. James Gordon is a psychiatrist and director of the nonprofit Center for Mind-Body Medicine, as well as director of mind-body studies at Georgetown Medical School and Georgetown University, and world-renowned expert in using mind-body medicine to heal depression, anxiety, and psychological trauma. In this episode, he shares how each of us can emotionally navigate these very traumatic times and share that with our employees and across our companies so that businesses at large can foster healthy cultures and best serve our companies by best serving our people.
