My guests this week:
G.G. Vandagriff “To look at me, no one would believe I was a PTSD sufferer. I am a wife of 39 years, mother of three grown children, grandmother of two boys, author of 12 published books, journalist: magazine column, weekly internet magazine blog, my own blog and website, graduate of Stanford University, MA: George Washington U.
Over the years, I had perfected my mask. My traumas were so extensive that two therapists told me that I would never live long enough to do the “therapy work” required to heal. But NOW I AM FREE!!
My mission is: To lead sufferers to the place where they can find help, as well as to help them find coping strategies I do this through my books (principally The Last Waltz, Pieces of Paris, and The Only Way to Paradise), my blog: Embracing Abundance. I was healed by the intervention of my Savior, Jesus Christ.”
Victoria Lemle Beckner, Ph.D., received her doctorate in clinical psychology from the University of Texas at Austin. She completed her internship at the San Francisco VA Medical Center and a grant-funded postdoctoral research fellowship at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) Department of Psychiatry. Her research and clinical work over the last 14 years have focused on the nature and treatment of stress, anxiety, trauma and depression. Her clinical approach combines Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) within a humanistic-interpersonal framework, and she has experience working with a wide range of individual and couples’ problems. Dr. Beckner is currently a clinical faculty member at UCSF, where she teaches and conducts research on anxiety and depression treatments, and the role of stress hormones on mental and physical health. She has also published research articles and conducted workshops on these topics, and is the lead author of a book for trauma survivors: Conquering Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.
