One of the reasons why I love doing this podcast is that I have the opportunity to talk with inspiring people doing incredible things in the world of healing.
I, myself, get inspired, it’s thought-provoking, and it makes me reflect on my own life and purpose.
This week is no exception.
I talk a lot on this podcast about the many educational options, in terms of modalities and treatments, that trauma workers have.
But, where does one turn when they’re just starting out, and how do you begin?

By now, we’ve all heard of EMDR, and we’re all familiar with benefits of mindfulness.
My guests this week, Jamie Marich and Stephen Dansiger (both former podcast guests.) break down what it means to integrate EMDR and mindfulness within trauma-focused treatment.
Jamie and Stephen have just written a new book, Trauma, EMDR & Mindfulness Jamie Marich & Stephen Dansiger, and in this interview they not only talk about the book, but how they met and what drives each of them, personally, to do this work.
