In this episode, we continue our exploration the intersection of some of the biggest and most powerful ideas in history and modern science using Johnathan Haidt’s The Happiness Hypothesis as our guide. This week we put the trauma-informed lens on the meaning of life. How does helping those we serve to find meaning help them build resiliency and post-traumatic growth?

Discussion Questions:

  1. What “meaning” do you believe guides clients in their life and decision making?
  2. How does your work help you fulfill your “meaning” of life?
  3. Can you identify ways to help clients find meaning through love, work, religion, or culture?
