Donald Meichenbaum Comment Board: New Perspectives on Trauma Treatment

 

As the final session of our New Practices on Trauma Treatment, hear from Donald Meichenbaum, the founder of cognitive-behavioral therapy, on his perspectives about trauma treatment in psychotherapy today.

Legendary for his impressive career—and his straightforward, sharp ways of thinking and speaking—this isn’t a presentation you’ll want to miss. He’ll explain which trauma treatments are effective, or ineffective, and why he believes so.

If you’d like some background information on him, be sure to check out a Networker interview with Meichenbaum that appeared in our November/December 2010 issue here.

After listening, please take a moment to comment here and share your thoughts and experiences, both on this session and on the entire series. What did you think of Meichenbaum’s take on trauma treatments? What presentation resonated with you the most? Which ideas do you connect with least?

    David Feinstein Comment Board: New Perspectives on Trauma Treatment

     

    Tune in to hear David Feinstein present the evidence for Energy Psychology (EP), following the article on the topic that he wrote in the November/December issue of the Networker. Energy Psychology is one of psychotherapy’s most controversial methods—is it truly effective? Feinstein will describe why and how EP has come to be regarded as controversial in context, and how to understand the practice of tapping as an effective method.

    In his article, Feinstein asks rhetorically, before embarking on his story:  “What could possibly have possessed a wizened, seen-it-all therapist like me to embrace an approach that much of the world of orthodox psychology considers the latest incarnation of snake oil?”

    Find out the answer in his article, posted online here, and then listen to him speak in a one-on-one conversation about his experiences with EP and how to integrate it into clinical practice.

    After listening to Feinstein’s presentation, please take a moment to comment here and share your thoughts. What did you think about EP before this presentation? What do you think now? Have you ever had any personal experiences with EP? Did you learn anything new today?

      Laurie Leitch Comment Board: New Perspectives on Trauma Treatment

       

      All of us listening to this session of New Perspectives on Trauma Treatment, featuring Laurie Leitch, come from a wide variety of backgrounds, but few of us seize the opportunity to practice our models of therapy in places outside of our offices.

      Laurie Leitch, along with her business partner Elaine Miller-Karas, founded the Trauma Resource Institute in order to provide short-term trainings to groups of people surrounding traumatic events—in places like Haiti after the recent earthquake or New Orleans post-Hurricane Katrina—so that their set of biologically based skills can help stabilize local people after disasters.

      Get ready to be wowed by Leitch’s descriptions of the incredible results that have occurred, after presenting simple skills to people who have suffered unimaginable horrors. After listening, please take just a moment to comment here. What do you think of this method? What stands out for you?
