CLEANING UP THE MENTAL MESS with Dr. Caroline Leaf

Episode #109: How EMDR Therapy can help with PTSD, trauma, panic attacks, and anxiety + how to help a teen who is suicidal, how to strengthen your child’s stress resilience levels and more

December 1, 2019

In this episode I interview Dr. Mark Mayfield on how EMDR therapy can benefit those who struggle with PTSD, panic attacks, anxiety, and other mental health issues. We discuss what EDMR is, how to find a specialist, what to know before you start, and more. We also discuss how to help teens who may be suicidal, how to develop stress resilience in your child, how to protect your own mental health as a parent, what NOT to say to teens who are struggling, how to handle substance abuse in children, and so much more! For more information on EMDR and to find a specialist in your area visit: https://www.emdria.org

 

 

Dr. Mayfield has extensive experience within the realm of substance abuse (primarily with the adolescent population), doing 10-15 groups a week early in his career. He has worked with gang members in the inner-city of Denver, developed adolescent and family therapy programs working with at-risk youth, provided in-home family therapy and multi-systemic family therapy, and has developed equine facilitated psychotherapy groups for child and adolescent survivors of mental and/or emotional struggles. Dr. Mayfield's doctoral research focused the effects of equine facilitated psychotherapy on veteran survivors with partial or full PTSD.
