Welcome to Episode 5 of the Bourbon & Breakthroughs Series. For trauma survivors, even seemingly ordinary life experiences can trigger negative beliefs, painful emotions, and problematic behaviors that feel impossible to resolve. Attempting to heal or create lasting change without eliminating the influence of past events would be like putting a Band-Aid over a bullet wound. This is the belief of today’s remarkable guest, Dr. Jon Connelly, whose early career experiences as a child protective service worker and clinical supervisor helped him develop Rapid Resolution Therapy (RRT), a pioneering method for clearing the ongoing effects of traumatic events quickly and painlessly. Join us today as we discuss Dr. Connelly’s work with RRT and get a sneak peek into his process during a live session with Chris, all while enjoying a glass of Cavehill Kentucky Straight Bourbon from Rabbit Hole Distillery. You’ll find out why Dr. Connelly believes that making a difference starts with personal responsibility, why he rejects the idea that you need to feel bad in order to feel better, what is in his “strong, deceptively powerful, and sweet” signature cocktail, and so much more. To learn how to overcome your fears, heal trauma, and shift your perspective using Dr. Connelly’s revolutionary RRT system, be sure to tune in today!

This episode carries a trigger warning for listeners who are sensitive to trauma, accounts of traumatic events, and references to abuse. Please listen with care.
