Play • 19 min

As a child, Rose witnessed an instance of domestic violence between her parents that has stayed with her over the years. And a certified traumatologist and psychotherapist who works with immigrant women talks to Juleyka about how those of us in similar circumstances can move forward and heal.


Our expert this week is Martha Vallejo, certified traumatologist and psychotherapist based in Miami, Florida. She recommends this talk as a resource to understand the longterm impact of childhood adversity in adults.
