Therapy Chat Podcast Episode 299
Welcome back to Therapy Chat! In this week’s episode, host Laura Reagan, LCSW-C revisits her two previous conversations with Lisa Ferentz. First, Lisa and Laura discuss trauma held in the body. Then you will hear Lisa speak about her book Finding Your Ruby Slippers: Transformative Life Lessons from the Therapist which looks at how we can overcome everyday obstacles, boost confidence, and end self-critical thoughts with journal prompts based in simple life lessons.
Lisa is a recognized expert in the strengths-based, depathologized treatment of trauma and has been in private practice for 32 years. She presents workshops and keynote addresses nationally and internationally, and is a clinical consultant to practitioners and mental health agencies in the United States, Canada, and the UK.
She has been an Adjunct Faculty member at University of Maryland School of Social Work, University of Baltimore at Maryland, University of Maryland Department of Family Medicine, and is the Founder of The Ferentz Institute, formerly known as The Institute for Advanced Psychotherapy Training and Education, now going into its tenth year of providing continuing education to mental health professionals and graduating over 800 clinicians from her two Certificate Programs in Advanced Trauma Treatment.
In 2009, she was voted the “Social Worker of Year” by the Maryland Society for Clinical Social Work. Lisa is the author of Treating Self-Destructive Behaviors in Traumatized Clients: A Clinician’s Guide, now in its second edition, and Letting Go of Self-Destructive Behaviors: A Workbook of Hope and Healing. Her latest book, “Finding Your Ruby Slippers: Transformative Life Lessons from the Therapist’s Couch,” was released in January 2017. Lisa hosted a weekly radio talk show in 2014—2015.
