513: Tanner Wallace on Childhood Trauma, Attachment Wounds, and How to Heal

Show Notes

This episode is about the tough but very important topic of childhood trauma. I’m here with Dr. Tanner Wallace, a former university professor of health and human development turned full-time trauma recovery guide. She hosts her own podcast called “The Relational Healing Podcast” and helps adult survivors of childhood trauma heal their attachment wounds.

We discuss how childhood wounds can express in our lives, even if we don’t have a really specific extreme trauma, and the way these wounds show up in our relationships. We also go into the differences between traumatic events, how what happens after an event is often more important than the event itself, and the reason emotional neglect can be more harmful than physical abuse for children.

There will definitely be follow-ups to this episode. But as a starting point, I can’t wait to share today’s episode with you. Let’s join Dr. Tanner.

This podcast is brought to you by Sunday for Dogs… a new staple in our house that the newest family members could tell you the most about if they could talk. Lollipop and Hemingway, our two family dogs, are loving this food and get so excited when it’s time to eat now! When we got them, I knew I didn’t want to feed them overly processed kibble and homemade options were a lot of work! And Sunday has been my solution. It’s the first (and only) human-grade, air-dried dog food. Combining the nutrition and taste of all-natural, human-grade foods, with the ease of a zero-prep, ready-to-eat formula, Sundays is the best way to feed your best friend. Sundays is easier for dog parents to manage than refrigerated human-grade dog food brands. No fridge, prep, or clean-up. Unlike most human-grade dog foods, Sundays is gently air-dried and ready-to-eat, versus those other brands that are cooked and frozen instead. It’s as simple as scoop into their bowl and watch your pup devour it. In a blind taste test, Sundays outperformed leading competitors 40-0. No artificial binders, synthetic additives, or general garbage — seriously, look at the label. All of Sundays’ ingredients are easy to pronounce (okay, except quinoa), and healthy for dogs to eat. We’ve worked out a special deal for our listeners. Receive 35% off your first order. Go to sundaysfordogs.com/WELLNESSMAMA or use code WELLNESSMAMA at checkout.

This podcast is sponsored by Wellnesse, that’s wellness with an E on the end. The brand I co-founded when I realized there just weren’t truly natural alternatives to some personal care products that performed as well as many conventional brands. We’ve been sharing our popular toothpaste and haircare for almost two years, but today I’m excited to tell you about a new star in our lineup. The charcoal toothpaste that provides the same mineral-rich benefits as our original whitening formula with a boost of charcoal for extra whitening and mouth-supporting benefits. It’s made without glycerin using oral microbiome-friendly ingredients to help your body create stronger, healthier, whiter teeth while you sleep. I love to use charcoal and whitening toothpaste on alternating days to keep my teeth looking and feeling their best. You can check out our toothpaste and all of our products at wellnesse.com.
