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?
