He talks about how trauma work is complex and often misunderstood and how he aims to bring a holistic and empowering approach to help individuals navigate their traumas. He introduces the concept of "swimming in the ocean" of trauma rather than simply "white-knuckling" through it. Dr. Shurn also challenges the notion that trauma can only be coped with and emphasizes the importance of empowering individuals to navigate their traumas.
