Episode Info:

Outside of her full-time job as an advisor at UCLA, Elaine Dolalas shares her commitment to always work toward the betterment of Filipino American communities. She shares the origin story of This Filipino American Life podcast, the advantages of living in a heavily Filipino-populated community, and destigmatizing mental health.

For anyone that wants to understand how trauma literally reshapes both body and brain, compromising sufferers’ capacities for pleasure, engagement, self-control, and trust, we recommend reading, The Body Keeps the Score: Brain, Mind, and Body in the Healing of Trauma by Bessel van der Kolk M.D.
