Tonight at 7-8pm EST I will be on the “Life After Trauma” radio show hosted by Michele Rosenthal of Heal My PTSD (www.healmypstd.com). You can listen to it locally (in South Florida) on Seaview Radio (www.seaviewradio.com) at 960AM/95.9FM/106.9FM.
It will be exploring the subject of yoga as an avenue to help heal trauma. I will be on as a trauma survivor discussing my experience with yoga & additionally my professional vantage point and my evolution to using it in practice. Along with me will be two experts in the field and authors of the book in my “currently reading” section titled Overcoming Trauma Through Yoga: Reclaiming Your Body : Elizabeth Hopper, PhD and David Emerson, MSW, RYT.
As always, I am looking forward to do anything I can do to progress people’s understanding of how it can be applied (not for everyone but for people it is a good fit for) for trauma recovery. I also feel it is equally important for me to discuss the issues around trauma healing both from a place of a survivor and a therapist. I think, once healed, a person who has come through trauma can be a good resource for how the healing process works and, conversely, as a professional in the field as well I can speak from a space that co-professionals can hear–in the language of both sides.
If you know someone healing from trauma or working with trauma–both in the somatic fields (yoga, massage, acupuncture, etc.) and the mental health fields– feel free to pass the information along. It can be listened to virtually from anywhere through either of the websites above.
