As I indicated last week, this month weâ€™re going to be revisiting some of the incredible interviews on the podcast. This episode with Peter Bernstein has to be included. Peter lays bare in an open, honest and inspiring way the struggles and joys of one personâ€™s journey from high school dropout to becoming a trauma therapist. This episode provided me with so much inspiration for the work I do. I hope youâ€™ll find it equally as inspiring.
Peter M. Bernstein, PhD, FAPA, MFT is founder and director of the Bernstein Institute for Trauma Treatment in Petaluma, CA. In private practice since 1974, Peter holds a doctorate in clinical psychology as a California licensed Marriage and Family Therapist.
Dr. Bernstein specializes in the field of emotional and physical trauma and is the author of Trauma: Healing the Hidden Epidemic. A veteran of the Vietnam War era, Peter completed advanced infantry training at Fort Ord on the Monterey peninsula.
The Bernstein Institute offers individual, couples, and group therapy and uses Reichian-Myofascial Release Therapy (RMFR), a unique and proprietary modality developed by Dr. Bernstein for healing trauma, PTS, and other behavioral health issues.
