Transforming Trauma Episode 069: Trauma-Informed Transformational Medicine with Dr. Carrie Griffin
A podcast brought to you by the NARM® Training Institute
In this episode of Transforming Trauma, we hear from our guest, Dr. Carrie Griffin, an osteopathic family medicine physician and addiction medicine specialist with advanced training in maternal child and reproductive health. Dr. Carrie has been practicing obstetrics and addiction medicine where she became interested in trauma, which led her to training in NARM. Becoming a NARM Practitioner transformed her work and she now practices and teaches on trauma-informed care in medical settings.
Throughout the episode, Dr. Carrie shares about her own healing journey and how that led her to do the work she does now. She also shares about the different ways NARM informs her work both when she works with people one on one in her private practice, as well as in the clinical medical visit setting. Her training in Complex Trauma supports the expanded range of her work including more recent training in psychedelic medicine for healing trauma.
We invite you to listen to the whole episode to learn more about Dr. Carrie and the wonderful work she does!
