Post Traumatic Growth

“If we are training people to shut their feelings off, we owe it to them to show them how to turn them back on.”

This week’s guest is a legit hero. George Faller was born in Queens and served tenure in both the NYPD and the FDNY. He served boldly at Ground Zero on 9/11, showing up not only on his shifts but volunteering as peer support in his off time. Also a trained therapist, George tentatively raised his hand to work as a couple’s therapist with first responders and their partners after the event.
