Today I’m speaking with Dr. Patricia Sherman. Patricia contacted me several weeks ago to invite me to take part in a telesummit she was putting together. She explained that it was going to be specifically geared to trauma therapists, new and experienced alike. I was honored and jumped at the chance to take part!

The list of individuals she’s put together is pretty inspiring, as they cover a wide spectrum of influences and modalities.

Dr. Sherman earned an MSW and PhD in social work from Rutgers University.  She has been a social work educator for 35 years and has presented numerous workshops on culture, ethics, grieving, and self-care.  She also had a private practice for 20 years specializing in the areas of trauma, adoption, and grief.  She is President of Healing Is Possible, LLC, an education and training company.

Rachel Goldsmith Turow is a clinical psychologist, research scientist, and adjunct faculty member at Seattle University and the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai.

In her clinical work, she has provided a range of treatments for trauma and related challenges, including “Self-Talk” therapy groups that integrate lovingkindness meditation and cognitive behavioral skills to transform self-criticism into self-encouragement.

Dr. Turow’s research program addresses the ways that emotion regulation, self-compassion, trauma appraisals, and social contexts influence trauma recovery. As a faculty member of Rush University Medical Center, Dr. Turow started the hospital’s Dialectical Behavior Therapy-based program, supervised psychology and medical trainees, and trained military medical personnel to manage others’ trauma responses during deployment.

Dr. Turow has written dozens of scientific articles and chapters, along with the book Mindfulness Skills for Trauma and PTSD: Practices for Recovery and Resilience (Norton Professional Books). She is a reviewer for several professional journals and serves on the Scientific Advisory Board for the International Society for the Study of Trauma and Dissociation.
