Our guest today is James Powell, a social worker and practicing therapist at Jason Walter and Associates. James believes that healing and self-actualization result from a life-long commitment to self-reflection—the constant pursuit of increasing congruency between one’s values and behavior. Her psychotherapeutic practice is rooted in Buddhism, 12-step philosophy, shamanic spirituality, humanistic psychology, and psychodynamic theory. James works with clients who have experienced loss, interpersonal violence, and addiction.
James will speak with us today about her practice and how her identity and experience as a survivor of interpersonal violence informs her work as a practitioner helping others engaged in similar struggles and journeys.
During our conversation, James and I referenced the following resources:
- Judith Herman's Trauma and Recovery
- The Feminist Next Door's tweet about interpersonal violence and the en(gender)ed podcast tweet
- American Psychological Association's guidelines for practice with girls/women and boys/men
- Peggy Orenstein's article, "It's Not That Men Don't Know What Consent Is"
- Teri's post about a NYC pilot with survivors taking into account the trauma history of the abuser
