Empowering Therapists: A Training on Jewish Trauma & Anti-Semitism Response with Malka Shaw, LCSW and Stacey Shapiro, LCSW

Today, we dive into the critical and timely topic of trauma, specifically within the Jewish community, with two exceptional guests: Malka Shaw, LCSW and Stacy Shapiro, LCSW.

With over 25 years of experience in the field of mental health, Malka brings her expertise in trauma therapy and EMDR, starting from the tragic days of 9/11, to complex issues like betrayal trauma and maternal wellness. Stacy complements this with her extensive background in individual trauma therapy, energy psychology, and innovative techniques like brain spotting.

Together, they discuss their unique journey that led them to collaborate in response to the rise of anti-Semitic incidents. They'll shed light on the challenges faced by Jewish therapists and their clients in these trying times, the nuances of cultural competency, and the importance of understanding the therapist's own emotions during treatment. This episode promises to be not just an exploration of their specialized training but also a heartfelt conversation about resilience, community, and the necessity of self-care in the face of adversity. Whether you're a therapist seeking to enhance your skills or simply someone interested in the intersections of culture and mental health, this conversation is sure to resonate and inform.

Malka and Stacey have been receiving hundreds of requests to formulate a wider training for all therapists and helping professionals and they are now extending an invitation to a vital training opportunity for therapists and helping professionals in response to the recent tragic events impacting the global Jewish community.

Their training focuses on aiding individuals in providing effective support during times of active conflict and the recent surge in anti-Semitism: Working with Jewish Clients During Active War and Rise in Anti-Semitism: A Trauma Perspective.
