Tonight's special guest is Stefanie Stolinsky, PhD, from Los Angeles, a licensed clinical and forensic psychologist. She specializes in working with adults who have been sexually, physically, emotionally, and verbally abused. As an ex-actress and current writer she is the author of 'ACT IT OUT: 25 Acting Exercises to Heal from Childhood Abuse,' published by Praeclarus Press. Her book has been on the market since 2002 and has been a staple in colleges and private practices of therapists to help survivors find active ways of healing from their abuse. It includes acting exercises that actors in television and film use to connect their minds with their bodies. Used in a hierarchical way, these exercises allow you, the survivor, to heal in your own way, with your own timeline and your own pace. An example of the exercises is also featured on YouTube using professional actors to demonstrate each exercise for you. Stefanie lives and works with her husband in Los Angeles. Her practice focuses on treating individuals, groups, and couples, addressing relationship issues and issues pertaining to trauma and abuse. These stress disorders include: acute stressors — violence, domestic and work upheaval, sexual harassment, as well as past traumas such as, sexual and physical child abuse. In her practice she combines drama, acting, and performing, with a unique style of psychotherapy. Stefanie has been a noted speaker for more than ten years on all aspects of abuse and trauma. She also regularly taught at the California Graduate Institute and the Maple Counseling Center in Beverly Hills.
