Veronique Mead, MD, MA, is formerly an Assistant Professor of Family Medicine who retrained as a Somatic Trauma Therapist. She presents the science of trauma on her blog. The research is taking us into a new way of thinking about and understanding chronic illness. It also makes it possible to identify more tools to support healing, even if trauma happened years ago. Veronique is an author, speaker and writer who integrates what she’s learned with her own journey of gradual recovery from a disabling chronic illness.
