    Personality and the Alchemy of Therapeutic Change with Nancy McWilliams, PhD

    Personality and the Alchemy of Therapeutic Change with Nancy McWilliams, PhD

    Nancy McWilliams, PhD, is a pioneer in the field of psychoanalytic/psychodynamics. Her genuine curiosity for trying to understand and help people has led to a rich, 50-year career.
    In this conversation, Nancy shares learnings from her research in the field of complex trauma and profound lessons from clients who have opened up their worlds to her. 
    Reflecting on the changing landscape of psychotherapeutic approaches, and her objections to the “so-called evidence-based treatments”, she highlights the humanity in the psychotherapeutic relationship: meeting the clients where they are. “You have to tolerate uncertainty and not knowing – a kind of moral equality with the patient, where we’re figuring it out together. I have to learn from you; I’m not here to apply something to you.”
    About Nancy McWilliams:
    Nancy McWilliams, PhD, is a renowned psychoanalytic psychotherapist, professor, and author. Nancy teaches psychoanalytic theory and therapy at the Graduate School of Applied and Professional Psychology at Rutgers--The State University of New Jersey. She is also a senior analyst with the Institute for Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy of New Jersey and the National Psychological Association for Psychoanalysis. Nacy’s influential book, Psychoanalytic Diagnosis, is a response to the significant change of direction of the DSM IV and has become a standard text in many training programs for psychotherapists in the United States and abroad.

    Understanding Historical Trauma with Ingrid Cockhren

    Ingrid Cockhren is the CEO of PACEs Connection, a social network that connects organizations, systems, and communities that implement trauma-informed policies and practices, as well as positive and adverse childhood experience (PACEs) science. 
    Ingrid dedicated her career to educating the public about the connection between adversity and poor health outcomes, including depression, anxiety, criminal behavior, and incarceration.  
    Ingrid entered academia with the question, “Why do so many African American children end up in our juvenile justice system?” Considering Black parenting styles, scientific colonialism, toxic stress, and intergenerational trauma, she makes the connection between adverse childhood experiences and the implications of historical trauma. 
    She also shares how her own adverse experience as a survivor of childhood sexual abuse and her work with primarily black incarcerated youth brought her to complex and historical trauma. 
    About Ingrid Cockhren: 
    Ingrid Cockhren is an adjunct professor specializing in Black psychology, developmental psychology, abnormal psychology, and personality theory at Tennessee State University. She holds a B.S. in psychology from Tennessee State University and an M.Ed. in child studies from Vanderbilt University’s Peabody College, specializing in minority and impoverished children.

    The Polyvagal Theory and Developmental Trauma with Dr. Stephen Porges

    The Polyvagal Theory and Developmental Trauma with Dr. Stephen Porges

    Dr. Laurence Heller and Dr. Stephen Porges engage in a stimulating conversation about safety cues, life-threat reactions, shame, and connection as our “biological imperative.” Dr. Porges, a distinguished neuroscientist and originator of the Polyvagal Theory, emphasizes the importance of physiological states in expressing trauma-related behavioral and health problems. 
    The fascinating exploration takes the listener on a journey of understanding trauma: from learning how the NeuroAffective Relational Model (NARM) and the Polyvagal Theory have profoundly impacted the knowledge of trauma and how the two frameworks relate. Dr. Heller: “What we learn in adapting to connection failures very early on in life is what we have a tendency to carry forward, not just on a cognitive level but on an emotional level and a physiological level.”
    About Dr. Larry Heller and Dr. Stephen Porges: 
    Dr. Laurence Heller is the creator of the NeuroAffective Relational Model (NARM), Senior Faculty member, International Trainer, and author. 
    Stephen W. Porges, Ph.D., is Distinguished University Scientist at Indiana University, where he is the founding director of the Traumatic Stress Research Consortium. He is Professor of Psychiatry at the University of North Carolina and Professor Emeritus at the University of Illinois at Chicago and the University of Maryland. In 1994, Dr. Porges proposed the Polyvagal Theory. The construct links the evolution of the mammalian autonomic nervous system to social behavior and emphasizes the importance of physiological state in expressing behavioral problems and psychiatric disorders. He has published several books and more than 400 peer-reviewed papers.
