Dr. Julia DiGangi is a neuropsychologist who completed her residency at Harvard Medical School, Boston University School of Medicine, and the US Department of Veterans Affairs. Dr. DiGangi has also studied genetics, trauma, resilience and more at Columbia, the University of Chicago, and Georgetown. She has nearly two decades of experience studying the connection between our brains and our behavior. She joins the show to discuss how to harness the power of the brain to lead a more emotionally intelligent, satisfying life. We discuss the importance of confronting and accepting uncomfortable emotions, the many ways we betray ourselves to avoid uncertainty, trauma and why people can experience and process the same trauma in different ways, how to let painful emotions move through us, why our internal state is more important than our circumstances and so much more.
