SE was founded by Dr. Peter Levine, author of the bestseller Waking the Tiger, who developed Somatic Experiencing based on explorations of how animals deal with threat, nervous system overwhelm, and traumatic experiences on a daily basis. SE focuses on regulation of the nervous system and offers the opportunity to engage, complete, and resolve the body’s instinctual responses to traumatic experiences. For more information regarding Somatic Experiencing and the SE professional training program, please visit: traumahealing.org/TTP ( https://slack-redir.net/link?url=http%3A%2F%2Ftraumahealing.org%2FTTP ) --- Jennifer’s writings can be found on Medium, most often curated under the Mental Health category, and she also serves as the Director of Innovative Client Solutions and is a mentor to current students at the International Association of Trauma Recovery Coaching.  Jennifer practices with gentle guidance to help her clients identify the core beliefs trauma taught them, and the repetitive patterns which are holding them back from being the best version of themselves. Jennifer teaches her clients healthy coping skills and tools to stabilize their lives in the short term, and to evolve from that new space, longer-term. She helps her clients increase awareness and make space for growth and healing by integrating psychoeducation, the neuroscience of trauma, somatic recognition and trigger tools all of which help to manage complex trauma symptoms.  *In This Episode* * *Jennifer’s quote* : It’s Not, Why Me ?

This work has culminated in her online course “Creating Safer Space” which offers accessible, professionally transformative trauma awareness to any facilitators (meditation teachers, yoga teachers, coaches, therapists, leadership trainers, dance teachers, healers, shamans, wellness providers, and beyond) so that they feel unshakable and integrated in offering their gifts and services to the people who need them the most.

Today, another episode in our Military Series ( https://www.thetraumatherapistproject.com/podcast/military-series/ ). I’m very excited to be joined by Mary Cortani. Mary is a Vietnam-era veteran and a Certified Army Master of Canine Education. She’s been training dogs for more than 35 years, starting in the military where she prepared dogs for work in sentry and explosive detection.  First off, a giant thank-you to my sponsors: Brighter Vision Web Solutions ( http://brightervision.com/guy ) What’s the point of having a beautiful website if it doesn’t attract the clients you want to see? Brighter Vision’s team of website designers will create you a website that is centered around attracting and retaining your ideal client, so that you can have a nice looking website as well as a successful one. Brighter Vision is offering one month free for The Trauma Therapist | Podcast listeners. Go to: brightervision.com/guy   Somatic Experiencing® Trauma Institute (SETI) ( https://traumahealing.org/kser ) Trauma may be a fact of life, but it doesn’t have to be a life sentence. Somatic Experiencing is a psychobiological method of addressing clients’ physical and emotional trauma conditions and helps to give voice to their experiences without a need for them to retell the story. For more information please visit: https://traumahealing.org/kser  In 2010, a former Marine approached Mary seeking assistance in acquiring a service dog to help him overcome anxiety disorders caused by combat hyper-vigilance. The multi-year waiting lists for trained dogs from existing organizations were just one more source of frustration for that returning vet. Mary knew that she could leverage her extensive dog-training experience to train that vet to train his own service dog. She also realized there are thousands of dogs waiting for loving homes and that many of them have the right temperament for service work. Those factors combined to form a strategy that would dramatically reduce the waiting time. The approach turned out to do so much more: It gave the vet a sense of mission and purpose, and as the training proceeded, it provided a sense of accomplishment and renewed confidence as well. Thus was born the Operation Freedom Paws (OFP) program, and for Mary, the alignment of her skillset, her capacity as a gifted leader and her life purpose.  *In This Episode* * Mary's website ( https://operationfreedompaws.org/ ) * Mary’s CNN Heroes Video ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s7snBrlKNSk&feature=youtu.be ) * Mary’s training services ( https://operationfreedompaws.org/services/ ) * Support Operation Freedom Paws here ( https://donatenow.networkforgood.org/OperationFreedomPaws ) Support this podcast at — https://app.redcircle.com/shows/1019d1cc-caab-419e-815c-09dd0e546b89/sponsor

Today, I’m peeling back the curtain on my membership community, Trauma Therapist | 2.0, and letting you listen in on a 2.0 Master Class, which is something I haven’t done before. This Master Class is with Cynthia Price, a body therapy researcher. Cynthia studied massage therapy in 1981 and was in private practice for 20 years as a body psychotherapist before pursuing her doctorate to do research in the field. Now an Associate Research Professor at the University of Washington, her research is focused on the study of Mindful Awareness in Body-oriented Therapy (MABT), a body therapy approach developed to teach interoceptive awareness skills for self-care and to facilitate emotion regulation.  This work, while helpful for people from all walks of life, is particularly useful for individuals who are disconnected from their bodies due to trauma, depression, chemical dependency, chronic pain, stress or illness.  The Director of the Center for Mindful Body Awareness ( http://www.cmbaware.org/ ) http://www.cmbaware.org/ in Seattle, Cynthia is committed to increasing health care access to underserved populations, and works with local and international programs to provide and improve integrative care through her research, teaching, and service.

Dr. Dan Allender has pioneered a unique and innovative approach to trauma and abuse therapy over the past 30 years. Central to Dr. Allender’s theory ( http://theallendercenter.org/about/allender-theory/ ) and approach are the categories of Faith, Hope and Love, and their converses betrayal, ambivalence, and powerlessness. Through identifying and engaging these categories in one’s personal narrative, healing and transformation can occur by bridging the story of the gospel and the stories of trauma and abuse that mark so many.

I’m continually amazed at the incredible people I interview on this podcast. The people who dedicate their lives to helping those people who’ve been impacted by trauma are nothing short of incredible and inspiring. In this episode, I share one of the main themes that quickly showed up on this podcast when I first started it, and now, comes up almost every week--the importance (and the often overlooked quality) of authenticity. First though, a huge thank-you to my sponsors who help me keep this thing going!

Today, I talk a bit about what makes up this community and how I invite my guests to talk about the ways in which they bring their presence and authenticity to the work they do, and why that is so crucial and important for this work. Guy Macpherson, PhD, is a husband, a father of two, and holds a doctorate in clinical psychology. He has spent the last several years studying the impact and treatment of trauma, and early psychosis. In 2014, Guy founded The Trauma Therapist Project with the goals of raising the awareness of trauma and creating an educational and supportive community for new trauma workers. The Trauma Therapist Project has now grown to include The Trauma Therapist | Podcast, now being listened to in more than 160 countries around the world, as well as Trauma Therapist | 2.0, an online membership community specifically dedicated to educating and inspiring trauma workers just starting out on their trauma-informed journey. Guy’s focus currently is on creating a vibrant, global community to support, educate and inspire new trauma workers, as well as to upend the present way that trauma is taught at the graduate level.

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.

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.

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.

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/ ).

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.

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.

Today I'm joined by Stephana Johnson. First, a shout-out to my sponsor, CPTSD Foundation​ who has been successfully equipping complex trauma survivors and practitioners with compassionate support, skills, and trauma-informed education since 2014. Stephana Johnson is an award winning transformational speaker, mentor and author who has made it her life’s work to empower leaders and groundbreakers to shine bright for others to follow. As a result of her personal sexual trauma and abuse, she lived in shame, fear and confusion until she was able to transform those scars into what she calls 'sacred wounds'. Stephana is the author of "Peace Doesn't Come In A Pill” and "Finding Joy Beyond Trauma" After counseling and coaching others for over 20 years, she says that she’s discovered our greatest wounds lead to our soul's perfection. As a direct result of working with Stephana, clients overcome fear, self-doubt, lifelong struggles with weight (both physical and emotional) and set aside other self-limiting beliefs that used to stand in the way of them stepping into their full potential.

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.

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.
