"We are all traumatized by life," writes Buddhist, psychiatrist, and author Mark Epstein. But this isn't necessarily a bad thing. In his new book, "The Trauma of Everyday Life," Epstein says trauma, from death of a loved one to everyday suffering like fear, has its benefits, and that understanding and accepting trauma can lead to personal growth and change. He joins us in the studio.

Host: Michael Krasny


  • Mark Epstein M.D., psychiatrist; author of "The Trauma of Everyday Life;" and clinical assistant professor in psychotherapy and psychoanalysis at New York University
