Dr. Claudia Black, renowned author, psychotherapist, and speaker, shares about her healing journey through the fear and hurt of her father’s anger and alcoholism while growing up. Claudia shares about how Experiential Therapies, such as Gestalt and Psychodrama, helped her to get in touch and feel safe with her own feelings in her recovery journey. Claudia also shares about her new inpatient treatment center for young adults, The Claudia Black Young Adult Center in Wickenburg, Arizona. Push the play button above to listen to the show or use the links below to listen on iTunes or Stitcher Radio.

One of my favorite things that Claudia said on the show was:

“It’s really about empowering, and helping them to move from the fear to a place believing that they deserve differently and then having the skills in which to be able to do that.”

    Hello! I don’t know if I’m doing this right, I’m sorry. But your podcast has saved me, and motivated me to get help. So thank from the deepest places of my soul helping me be a person again. I listen to your podcasts most nights, have found professional help again through the hope they’ve given me, and am overall better for this. You have a faithful listener in me.

    And though it’s mighty presumptuous of me to give you suggestions of all things, I do want to risk and mention that maybe, if it could be possible, you might look at getting a Myla Haider on your podcast? If I’m right she’s now a counsellor for rape/trauma victims and specialises in Military Sexual Trauma or a similar thing. She was Sergeant/Special Agent in the United States Army before this and is an outspoken and incredible advocate for veterans and survivors of MST. Perhaps you can see what I’m getting at. I think she could bring some important and possibly rather unique perspective to the podcast and reach a demographic that desperately needs to know they’re not alone, and I think you’d have a most interesting time meeting her and having her “on the couch” so to speak. So, although it is cocky of me to be saying this, I would put forward the idea that maybe you could try reaching out to her.

    Whatever comes of this, be it nothing or an episode with Haider, I hope you have a good day reading this and thank you.

      Thank you for your kind and encouraging words, PTSDSurvivor. I am so glad to hear that the show has been helpful in your journey of healing. And thank you for the guest referral for a future show. If I am able to produce another season of the show, I will definitely contact Myla Haider to see if she would be open to being on the show. Keep taking care of your heart!
