We would have to say that this is possible one of the most moving and inspirational episodes in recent times. When Richard Brockman found his mother’s body, the simple narrative of his childhood ended. He was just 7 years old. He tells a very personal—yet tragically common—story of irredeemable loss. He discusses how a life's story forms. How it grows. How it changes. How it can be broken. And finally, how sometimes it can be repaired. It's utterly mesmerizing and at times, extremely lonely and sad. brace yourselves. As with all our episodes we are here for the journey, and the light at the end of the tunnel.
Now an expert in genetics, epigenetics, and the biology of attachment, Brockman chronicles his evolution from a child overwhelmed by trauma to a man who has struggled to reclaim his past. He lays bare the core of one who is both victim and healer. By weaving together childhood despair and clinical knowledge, Brockman shows how the shattered pieces of the self—though never the same and not without scars—can sometimes be put back together again. Literally wow.
