Lisa Ferentz is back on the podcast, and I couldn’t be more thrilled.
Lisa is the quintessential therapist, in my mind: she’s passionate, compassionate, super insightful, and a nationally recognized expert in the treatment of trauma with over 33 years in the field. In 2009 she was voted the “Social Worker of Year” by the Maryland Society for Clinical Social Work.
You’ll recall that Lisa initially joined me on episode 54 of the podcast, and then graced my membership site, Trauma Therapist | 2.0, with an amazing video interview on self-harming behaviors. You can check out a snippet of that video here.
Lisa is an adjunct Faculty member at several Universities and is the Founder of The Ferentz Institute, now in its tenth 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.
Today, we talk about her new book, Finding Your Ruby Slippers: Transformative Life Lessons from the Therapist's Couch, what inspired her to write it, why it’s a go-to resource for therapists and clients, alike, and the story behind the title.
