Free PDF for New Trauma Healers

Welcome back to The Trauma Therapist | Podcast, The Author Series. 

In this new series, I join with the leading publishers in the mental health field and interview today’s top authors to explore, and do a deep dive, into the books that can expand and inspire your work and practice.

Today I’m joined by Timothy Gordon, MSW. 

Tim is a social worker and ACT trainer (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, said aloud as ‘act’), who specializes in treating attachment and trauma related disorders, and he’s also a yoga teacher who integrates movement and yoga practices into his treatment. 

I’ve often said how much I love doing this podcast because I get to speak with amazing people, and Tim is one of the amazing ones. He’s knowledegable, compassionate and super-passionate about his work, and you can hear it in this interview.
