Tonight's special guest is Dr. Dora Wolfe from New Lenox, Illinois, a Clinical Psychologist and a Trauma / Attachment Specialist. While not a survivor, Dora has devoted the last 20+ years working with both survivors and perpetrators. We love it when concerned professionals and activists who may not themselves be survivors become members of the NAASCA family. Dora's worked across a variety of settings including schools, hospitals, residential facilities, the department of corrections and private practice. She has worked with a diverse trauma population - combat vets, emergency workers, survivors and perpetrators of abuse, and survivors of natural disasters. She practices trauma informed therapy with a foundation of attachment theory and affective neuroscience. Utilizing modalities such as biofeedback, neurofeedback, EMDR, somatic processing and mindfulness into her work with patients. Dr. Wolf trains and supervises students and early career therapists, and consults with schools, hospitals, PCPs, pediatricians, surgeons and attorneys. Her aim is to insure others are trauma informed. She has presented on topics such as stress and the brain, trauma and the brain, attachment, early developmental trauma, and trauma and attachment. She is currently working on numerous publications related to trauma. Dora's passion has always been on prevention. Her career has led her on what is being called 'pre-trauma.' That is, how we both prevent abuse, and nurture protective factors that lead to fewer traumatic occurrences and increased resilience in the face of traumatic events. Should be a fascinating show!
