So, how do I continually develop these aspects of myself, and where are the challenges? These are also the themes that I’m going to be exploring in my workshop at The Art of Living Retreat Center, September 20-23, in Boone, North Carolina.

Today, in episode #1, we talk about rage.

By day, she was chasing her passion of mental health advocacy through the pursuit of a law degree, while working in nonprofit organizations, mental institutions, prisons, and court rooms; places where shadow and hardship were highlighted and often inflated. By night, Bryanna was obsessively seeking to expand her own personal healing through studying spiritual teachings and new age personal development; places where shadow and hardship were diminished and deemed as negative (sometimes outright, sometimes by implication). Bryanna realized that there was a huge gap between the mental health industry and the wellness industry and became frustrated with the limitations of each.

As many of you know, one of my inspirations for starting this podcast was my brother, a former Navy SEAL who returned from combat with PTSD.

Duane France is one of those individuals. First though, a huge thank-you to my sponsors who help me keep this thing going!

Duane France is a retired United States Army Noncommissioned Officer. After 22 years of service, which included tours of duty with the 82nd Airborne Division, service as an Army Recruiter at Fort Meade, Maryland, and five combat and operational deployments, he became a clinical mental health counselor serving veterans in Colorado Springs, Colorado. As Duane started to work with veterans, he realized that there are some common challenges that all veterans face and that there are many individuals who want to support veterans that do not fully understand what these challenges are. Duane started the *Head Space and Timing* Blog and Podcast to help amplify this message and support those who have served.

Carl Waggett is back on the podcast and this guy is amazing. I don’t say that lightly.

Episode 356: Early Psychosis. The Course is Coming. Guy Macpherson
As many of you know, I've been working on The Trauma Therapist Project full-time now for about one year. Prior to that, my position was as a license-eligible clinician, working under a licensed therapist, at a clinic here in Northern California for five years. Our role was to assess and treat young individuals between the ages of 12 and 25 who were showing *early signs of psychosis*. I absolutely loved the job and learned an amazing amount. I’ve wanted to create a workshop around this topic for a long time, and so, here it is. In this episode, I introduce this topic and share a bit about the course. And yes, I’m very excited! *What is psychosis?* And what is early psychosis? Two great questions, and ones which you have to answer if you're a therapist, and could certainly help if you're a teacher. The word psychosis is not an actual diagnosis, but rather a collection of symptoms which indicate that an individual can not distinguish between what is real and what is not. Early psychosis then describes those symptoms which can sometimes precede full or complete psychosis. Such symptoms could include visual or auditory hallucinations (among others), but yet the individual still continues to maintain their hold on reality. In other words, someone might experience these symptoms but they know that those symptoms are not real. Assessing for these symptoms, whether you're a therapist or teacher, and whether you work with children or adults, is a crucial skill. This is what I spent 5 years of my life doing, and I loved it.

Episode 354: Byron Katie. The Work
I’m thrilled to have Bryon Katie on the podcast! If you’ve seen her either on video or in-person, then you know why I’m excited. There’s something about her presence, her humor, and her insightfulness that cuts through the BS and gets to the core of the human experience--the struggle, the frustration, and the suffering. That’s exactly why I invited her on the podcast. This episode is sponsored by PESI ( https://pesi.com/ ). When you need innovative and cutting edge treatment strategies and techniques to meet the changing demands of your clinical work, PESI connects you with today’s leading experts through their state of the art continuing education.

Check out CPTSD Foundation ( https://cptsdfoundation.org/ ). Byron Katie's level of insight, her self-awareness and questioning is precisely what’s required of the coaches and mentors and therapists who work with individuals who’ve been impacted by trauma. In 1986, at the bottom of a ten-year spiral into depression, rage, and self-loathing, Byron Katie woke up one morning to a state of constant joy that has never left her. She realized that when she believed her stressful thoughts, she suffered, but that when she questioned them, she didn’t suffer, and that this is true for every human being. Her simple yet powerful process of inquiry is called The Work. The Work consists of four questions and the turnarounds, which are a way of experiencing the opposite of what you believe. When you question a thought, you see around it to the choices beyond suffering. Katie has been bringing The Work to millions of people for more than thirty years. Her public events, weekend workshops, five-day intensives, nine-day School for The Work, and 28-day residential Turnaround House have brought freedom to people all over the world. Byron Katie’s books include the bestselling Loving What Is, I Need Your Love—Is That True?, A Thousand Names for Joy, and A Mind at Home with Itself.

Episode 349: Cultivating Compassion, Vulnerability & You. Guy Macpherson, Phd
Today, a reflection in the wake of the live, online 10-day program I did last week, The Heart-Centered Therapist. Note: I will be doing it again next month, in April. If you're interested in learning more about that, you can do so here: http://theheartcenteredtherapist.com When I created this podcast my initial inspiration was to bring seasoned therapists on to talk about how to treat trauma. What I discovered, however--and what my guests shared--was that and then so much more. It's not about what you know. It's about who you are. I think, if I had to put it in a nutshell, that's what it would be. The process of discovering, of exploring, of honoring, and owning, who we--who you!--are, and then learning to be that, authentically, compassionately and vulnerability, within the context of helping those who've been impacted by trauma, is the foundation (and some would say, the gold!!), of this work. This is what The Heart-Centered Therapist program is about. And like many things, it is simple, but not always easy. This episode is sponsored by my online, 5-day program coming in April, The Heart-Centered Therapist.

Episode 331: Speaking Our Truth. Kim Rezarch
Kimberly Rezarch M.S.W. is a survivor of severe childhood trauma and forced psychiatry. Over the course of 20 years in the mental health system, Kimberly was given 25 different mental health diagnoses and prescribed 11 medications to be taken simultaneously. It wasn’t until her psychiatrist became trauma-informed, that her life was saved with a new diagnosis, Dissociative Identity Disorder. This diagnosis indicated the severity of her trauma, but also provided the answers she was searching for. During her recovery journey, she developed the Trauma Motivated Outcomes Theory, which recognizes trauma as the motivation behind behaviors. Kimberly also sees that responses to trauma accumulate over time, mimicking mental illness and developing into Trauma Response Syndrome. Kimberly created the Trauma Response Syndrome Model to assist in the recovery from Trauma Response Syndrome. Kimberly wants to bring hope to those who suffer from trauma and provide new tools for mental health professionals.

Episode 328: The Power of Getting Uncomfortable. Tiffany Chhuom
Tiffany Chhuom, LSWAIC, CDP-T, MPH, MSW offers 18 years of professional experience practice, policy, research and administration that she used previously to contribute communication plans, marketing strategies and social media use policies for NASW-WA while also serving on our Communications Committee. As a therapist, treats veterans, people with disabilities, and survivors of all forms of violence (e.g. workplace harassment, campus sexual assault, Military Sexual Trauma, stalking, cyber abuse, rape, and childhood abuse). Her new practice, Lucy in the Sky: Therapy for the Gifted, aims to serve gifted adults, those living with disabilities and those surviving trauma and addiction. She is particularly interested in how all of these things intersect as a practitioner, speaker and writer. As the new NASW Standards for Technology in Social Work Practice influence our field, she recently completed advanced training in the UW Department of Bioethics where she will advance in ethics consultation. Specifically, Tiffany has contributed original research, clinical skill, campaign management and organizational leadership on the use of technology and health in practice, enterprise, and research. Her hope is to help practitioners, organizations, educators and policy makers remain relevant and compliant in our ever-evolving Digital Era. Prior to graduate school, Tiffany was sought out to manage challenging studies in Social Work, Public Health, Criminal Justice, Addiction Medicine, Population Health, Health Disparities, and Child Welfare. Her authorship in scientific, peer reviewed journals on addiction, child welfare, trauma, study implementation and studying the stress response of marginalized populations is noted. From time to time she still trains others how to more ethically conduct scientific study with historically traumatized populations. In policy, she served as a Policy Analyst at the Health Care Authority, making recommendations for the State Innovations Models Initiative and SB 6312. Her earlier policy days took new legislation headed by Partners for Our Children into action, coordinating complex data sharing agreements across 20 government agencies to prevent childhood injury. While Tiffany’s experience mentioned above keeps her grounded, her favorite job was in practicum at the VA Puget Sound Health Care System serving Military Sexual Trauma survivors. Her next step in life was to move to the country where she stays busy with 3 dobermans, 1 wiener dog, gardening and junkin’. Her new practice, Lucy in the Sky: Therapy for the Gifted, aims to serve gifted adults, those living with disabilities and those surviving trauma and addiction. She is particularly interested in how all of these things intersect as a practitioner, speaker and writer. In her writing, she is planning a blog that will showcase her strong foundation in trauma and addiction research, her love for using comic book art, and the hobbies she indulges in to practice her own self-care, which include junkin’, thriftin’, succulents and decorating on a dime. She is currently taking no more than 10 clients at any given time so she has space to lead community workshops, teach, write and play.

Episode 325: Stephen Kavalkovich. Sharing Pain. Honoring Strength.
Stephen is a long time NJ resident who has been given the gift of many experiences in life. For most of his adult life, he served as Paramedic for 15+ years in many jurisdictions in NJ, PA, and DE. He also had the honor of serving as a rescue worker at the World Trade Center on 9-11-01 in NYC. Stephen has seen tragedy and suffering first hand. While saving countless overdose victims in his career, he always felt a pang of sadness when his colleagues would treat a hurting person poorly due to their ignorance of the problem. Little did they know that he soon would be no different than many of his patients and that he was the one who needed the saving. It took him overdosing multiple times and having been revived by former colleagues, losing his certification, career, marriage, and children to finally stop Stephen from working towards his grave and start working a recovery program. His focus is to open up the conversation about addressing the underlying pain, trauma, or lack of coping skills that makes one decide to self-medicate in the first place. If it can happen to the rescuer himself then who perhaps “should have known better”, thus showing proof that no one is immune to the disease of addiction. Stephen’s story has to be told to give others the courage to voice their pain. Pain shared is pain lessened. He has expertise in Emergency Medical Care, First Responder PTSD and Substance Abuse issues, Recovery Coaching, Intervention, Leadership, and Spiritual Studies. He is also a charter member of the Southern Delaware Toastmasters International Club. He is available for coaching, mentorship, speaking engagements, guest interviews, content production, and consultation services. Stephen is proud to be the host and creator of the Rescue the Rescuer show, the only show in the world geared towards first responders who battle mental health issues including PTSD, Substance Abuse Disorder, and more. His show is hosted on the Mental Health News Radio Network where he also serves as the Director of Network Compliance. Stephen is regularly sought out for national and international TV, podcasts, and print media for his expertise. He welcomes you to book him for a free consultation, so we can devise a plan to meet your unique needs.

In 2013, while working as the Vice President of Casting & Talent Relations for the cable network TV One, Nikki lost her 22-year old nephew, Paul, to suicide after his years of struggle with depression and anxiety. Since then, she’s become a passionate mental health advocate. In Paul’s honor, she launched the nonprofit I Live For.org to create a safe space for honest, unapologetic conversations about mental health in communities of color where the cultural stigma of mental illness discourages far too many young people from seeking help. Esteemed scholar and advisor to the foundation, Michael Eric Dyson has called I Live For “an incredibly important organization that offers much needed support to those who too often suffer in silence.” Her work with I LIVE FOR.org has been featured in the Washington Post, Huffington Post, NPR and NBC News. She’s the host of Slate Magazine’s podcast “Life Effects” and she’s currently producing and directing a documentary film featuring a diverse group of compelling young men and women who reject the stigma of mental illness and share candid stories about their experiences living with depression and anxiety. The film is being scored by her husband musician Jeffrey Allen of the Grammy nominated R&B band Mint Condition. In Spring 2017, she was chosen for the highly-coveted TED Residency program which culminated in delivering an impassioned TED Talk entitled, “Don’t suffer from your depression in silence,” which has garnered over 1.7MM views.

A few weeks ago I reached out to Victor Yalom of psychotherapy.net and inquired about partnering with him to bring my listeners one of his most popular online courses, Irvin Yalom and the Art of Psychotherapy. I thought this would be a great chance for you to learn from a master therapist. Irvin Yalom, is a prolific author, well-known for integrating existentialism into his work, as well as for working in the here and now. It is these latter two elements which are integral to working with those who’ve been impacted by trauma, and the reason I wanted to partner with Victor to bring this course to you. In this episode I talk to Victor, the son of Irvin Yalom, and himself, a licensed psychologist with over 25 years of experience, and the founder and CEO of Psychotherapy.net. Victor shares his personal story of what inspired him to get into the field of psychotherapy, and then eventually found psychotherapy.net. Victor gives us a peek into this incredible course, Irvin Yalom and the Art of Psychotherapy, and also offers The Trauma Therapist | Podcast listeners a unique discount.

Episode 304: Meditation, Healing & Trauma. Lynn Fraser
My guest this week is Lynn Fraser. Lynn’s story involves overcoming PTSD acquired when she was punched off of her bicycle by a mentally ill stranger as she rode to work one morning. Since that experience and the unfolding of her healing journey, she’s become an anchor to support people’s journeys as they begin to live from their own innate wisdom and basic goodness. Lynn learned that those of us with difficult childhoods are more likely to develop PTSD and it is this that inspires her own deeper healing, that of her clients, and the reason she wrote her book, Friends With Your Mind: How to Stop Torturing Yourself With Your Thoughts (Breathe, Relax, Heal).

Episode 297: Zen & Healing Trauma. Joseph Bobrow
Joseph Bobrow is a Zen Roshi, psychoanalyst, and author, who has long been integrating Buddhist practice with depth psychology to create relational settings in which individual and collective anguish can be transformed. Most recently he developed reintegration retreats that helped thousands of veterans, their families, and their caregivers transform the traumas of war and find peace. Joseph and his team at Coming Home Project, a service of Deep Streams Zen Institute dedicated to alleviating debilitating trauma, discovered a process called Turning Ghosts into Ancestors; published research demonstrates how it facilitates post-traumatic growth. Coming Home Project now offers consultation and training to create optimal environments for healing, learning, and individual and social change. Joseph tells the story of his integrative work and its contemporary applications to building peace in Waking Up From War: A Better Way Home For Veterans And Nations, with a Foreword by His Holiness The Dalai Lama. Joseph’s first book was Zen And Psychotherapy: Partners In Liberation, with comments by Ven. Thich Nhat Hanh. After Midnight: Selected Poems, Joseph’s first collection of poems, was published in February 2017 by Fisher King Press. Joseph lives in Los Angeles, CA. and teaches widely.
