    What is TRAUMA THERAPY?

    Hey everybody! I have an amazing special guest Dr. Alexa Altman is here to talk with us about what is trauma and resiliency. Since this is the first of many videos that Alexa and I are going to do together tell my audience a little bit about what you do and what your specializations are. I’m a clinical psychologist with a specialization in trauma therapies specifically, EMDR and somatic experiencing and both of those therapies help a person move out of the overwhelm that happens after a traumatic experience back into connection with their bodies, connection with other people, and a greater connection to their life. Very cool. Yeah, and…

    Alcohol Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT) – Part 1

    Alcohol Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT) – Part 2

    I’ve been doing this for about maybe 10, 12 years. I have had a lot of training in this, I’ve seen hundreds of thousands of patients, but you don’t need that kind of experience to make this work. My personal barriers were just lack of experience. It was how can I fit this back into my time management? How can I make this a part of my assessment? How can I make this a part of my approach to the patient? So it was a matter of learning how to do it versus a task. The more I’ve done it, the easier it becomes. I’m Jeff, I’m one of the…
