Dr. G is a trauma-informed psychologist turned trauma-informed product researcher and designer. In this episode, we discuss getting into UX research, becoming an advisor, meeting people where they are, and emotional inclusivity. We explore trauma-informed design (understanding), restorative design (creating), and receptional design (receiving) as the product lifecycle.
We also talk about:
- Going deeper for a small audience rather than trying to get all the audience
- Focusing on getting design right
- Designing for emotions other than just joy and delight
After 4 degrees in psychology (B.A., M.A., M.S., and Ph.D.) I've finally decided what I want to be when I grow up. As a trauma-informed product designer I help product and service designers become more restorative in their design process. I've finally fused my love for psychology and user experience (UX) research and design into one beautiful, complex career.
