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:
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.
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.
