GG episode 8 is an in-depth dialogue with Kathy L. Kain, on working with patients suffering the effects of developmental trauma and complex trauma. She recently co-authored a groundbreaking book on this topic titled, Nurturing Resilience.
It was such an honor to have Kathy on the show. She generously explicated the mechanisms of developmental traumatic experiences and their manifestation in adulthood as complex trauma syndromes, somatic shame, and personality disorders. She also shared psychological and affective neuroscience research on trauma, and outlines a roadmap for integrating somatic skills with traditional psychotherapy. This dialogue is so rich with information for mental health professionals, even if you do not work with complex trauma or are interested in somatic methodologies.
Kathy L. Kain is an expert in integrating touch into the practice of psychotherapy and trauma recovery, with 37 years of clinical experience. She is a senior instructor of Somatic Experiencing Therapy, and spends most of her time training psychotherapists in the physiology of traumatic stress through her popular program, Touch Skills Training for Trauma Therapists.
