Registered, Board Certified, Licensed Creative Art Therapist and EMDR therapist, Herb Cohen, has a very fantastic view about trauma, mental health labels, and recovery. Does PTSD exist? Cohen doesn’t think so – but you have to hear why, plus his ideas for a new trauma recovery paradigm.

In the conversation Cohen:

  • discussed the relevance of the high prevalence of relapse in addiction recovery
  • described how we adapt after trauma, and why we do
  • explained the difference between the medical and psychological treatment models – and why mental health practitioners need to think more like physicians
  • outlined a new model for treatment
  • highlighted three developments that have happened in the past decade that pave the way for creating a necessary paradigm shift in recovery from emotional trauma.

Plus, in our Professional Perspective interview Dr. Kim Dennis explained why dissociation happens and offered simple tips for making it stop.
