Have you ever heard of people that are paid to contemplate the future? It's true! They exist. They are called Futurists. They even have their own training and schools they attend.

The Relationship between Trauma and Chronic Pain with Brandon Yuenger [Episode 63]
What is the link between trauma and chronic pain? How is physical therapy related to the field of psychology and mental health? How do you help someone settle their nervous system? Could you teach someone physical therapy techniques virtually?  Could you teach someone to start "self-healing" their body? And what discoveries have some physical therapists made regarding people's experience with trauma and pain in the body? Paul Krauss MA LPC and Dr. Brandon Yuenger discuss all of these concepts and more in this episode of the Intentional Clinician podcast. Brandon Yuenger has started his own coaching business called Step Forward Wellness and he also works as a physical therapist in Grand Rapids, MI. In 2012, Dr. Brandon Yuenger graduated from the University of Michigan-Flint with a Doctorate in Physical Therapy.  Shortly thereafter while working with a local rehab hospital to rehabilitate pediatric chronic pain and head injuries, he developed a taste for neurologically based manual therapies and found excellent results with both children and adults alike.  From there, Dr. Yuenger entered the complicated world of chronic pain.  Using a combination of mentoring, intuition and dumb luck he has developed a system of rehabilitation that is based in the understanding that we as people are not a collection of individual parts but one integrated unit of being.  He is excited to share his passion through both practice and education.

What is Trauma-Informed Counseling and What is the Science Behind It? [Episode 58]
Paul Krauss MA LPC presents: What is Trauma-Informed Counseling and What is the Science Behind It? In partnership with Acadia Health's online series "All the Rage." To educate practitioners on various topics. Watch the video version of this presentation with slides: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jIe2is8Lbp4&list=PLOQfdSDVP-71MaD33FBOzCihPb6kuZ2qG The neurobiology studies and scientific research which launched the trauma-informed care initiative in the last 20 years, is one of the most important developments in understanding the human condition, the way in which symptoms originate, how life experiences and “trauma” influence the spectrum of human adaptation, thoughts, behaviors, physical health and more—and is the key to understanding the importance of the entire mind-body therapy paradigm as well as why integrated care is paramount for the prevention of and recovery from mental illness. This presentation outlines some of the copious amounts of research that have proven the trauma-informed care paradigm to be empirically valid, and how knowledge of trauma-informed counseling techniques can lead to improved outcomes in all forms of healthcare—including, and especially mental health interventions. This presentation will educate practitioners on how to recognize the common experiences and reactions to trauma. In addition, this presentation will equip practitioners with simple ways to begin utilizing a trauma-informed care paradigm with counseling techniques to empower and educate clients—so that they may begin the journey of recovery and continue on into personal resiliency. Further, this presentation aims to utilize the basic scientific facts of trauma-informed care to challenge ingrained cultural notions that often distort, dilute, and contaminate the interventions of many well-meaning by clinicians who are not “trauma-informed” and do not have any trauma-specific interventions in their clinical “toolbox.” This presentation will also touch on current and generational societal attitudes and assumptions that perpetuate traumatic incidents within the culture of the United States—as well as the statistical odds of negative health outcomes that may result from suffering a trauma or multiple traumatic events (e.g. hypertension, increased risk of suicide, increased risk of suffering from severe mental illness, increased risk of obesity and related pulmonary disorders, increased risk of drug/alcohol addiction, increased statistical odds of being a victim of violence etc.).
