TEDxYoungstown: Trauma | Jamie MarichTrauma is discussed.
Dr. Jamie Marich's friends and colleagues describe her as a renaissance woman. A dancer, musician, performer, writer and clinical counselor, Marich unites these elements of her experience to achieve an ultimate mission: bringing the art and joy of healing to others. Based in Ohio, Marich is the founder of the Dancing Mindfulness practice, and she actively trains facilitators on using this practice in both clinical and community settings. She is the author of Trauma Made Simple (2014), Creative Mindfulness (2013), Trauma and the Twelve Steps (2012), and EMDR Made Simple (2011). Marich began her career in human services while working as an English teacher in post-war Bosnia; she is fast becoming respected as a voice to listen to in the mental health and addiction recovery communities because of her candidness.
Says Marich, “I really just see myself as someone who is calling for a back to basics approach, which means carrying ourselves with person-centered common sense and not being afraid to help people work with their own sense of creativity.”
This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
