Deep Conversations in the How We Can Heal Podcast is Sure to Delight Members

ISSTD’s most recent Past President Lisa Danylchuk has been very busy developing a podcast focusing on how we can heal from trauma, both individually and collectively. The Podcast, now in its third season, is a treasure trove of wisdom, wrapped up in warm conversation.

The guest list is unbelievable and includes many ISSTD Members. Recent podcasts have included:

  • Brain Biomarkers of Dissociative Identity Disorder, with Dr. Simone Reinders
  • Understanding and Treating Dissociation, with Kathy Steele
  • What Causes Dissociation? Research by Dr. Mary-Anne Kate
  • EMDR for Complex Trauma and Dissociation, with Michael Coy

Past Presidents Christine Forner, Rosita Cortizo and Board Member Heather Hall make for fascinating guests in season two. However, the podcast certainly reaches beyond ISSTD and includes a strong focus on trauma informed yoga with guest speakers such as Steph Snyder, Nityda Gessek and Erica Chang, among many others.

Each podcast is almost an hour long, with some going just beyond the hour, allowing for a really in-depth discussion that feels relaxed, warm and connected. The material is bound to be helpful for any clinician working in the field, and there is rich learning in hearing clinicians and researchers talk about their work, as opposed to only reading a paper or a book (as wonderful as these are!)

The podcast can be found on Apple podcasts and also from Lisa’s website:
