We close out the holiday republishing with this gem. Ed Tick pretty much embodies everything I’m attempting to do with this podcast: He exudes a certain genuineness and passion for this works that is infectious and inspiring. I remember finishing the interview with him on fire. I was that excited, and I wanted to translate that into the work I do with my clients as well as The Trauma Therapist Project.
I hope you enjoy this one. Again!

We continue this month revisiting some of my favorite interviews. Today we listen to the incredible Lisa Ferentz, LCSW.
Lisa is one of those individuals who has the admirable combination of empathy, humor, and compassion together with the skill of a master therapist. (I loved talking with Lisa so much, and respect so much the way she works that I invited her to share her passion on Trauma Therapist | 2.0. You can check out Lisa’s video here.)
Lisa has been in private practice for over 30 years and is a nationally recognized expert in the treatment of trauma.
She is an adjunct Faculty member at several Universities and is the Founder of The Institute for Advanced Psychotherapy Training and Education, now in its eighth year of providing continuing education to mental health professionals.
Lisa is the author of Treating Self-Destructive Behaviors in Trauma Survivors: A Clinician’s Guide, now in its second edition, and Letting Go of Self-Destructive Behaviors: A Workbook of Hope and Healing.
In 2009 she was voted the “Social Worker of Year” by the Maryland Society for Clinical Social Work.

As I indicated last week, this month we’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 person’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 you’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.
