Good relationships are the key to healing trauma

“Relationships are the very oxygen of human development”

Dr Karen Treismen is a Clinical Psychologist who focuses on understanding and healing trauma. In her Ted Talk, she highlights the importance of good relationships in maintaining one’s mental health. She looks at this topic in a broad sense and emphasizes the ways that promoting good interpersonal relationships can benefit our society. The points raised include:

  • How important it is for children to see and have positive relationships early in their lives 
  • The ways that social relationships can cause or heal trauma
  • The importance of connecting with people when we try to support them through hard times, rather than simply trying to “fix” their problems
