Alyson and Ingrid talk about her book, Believing Me: Healing from Narcissistic Abuse and Complex Trauma and her journey on social media and how finding herself reflected in Instagram accounts helped her find her own voice and a way to talk about complex trauma in bite size pieces that are accessible to people from diverse backgrounds. They also talk about how Ingrid’s social media integrates all the different sides of her personality, silly, serious, childlike and professional.
