Overview of Trauma-Informed Care – Podcast

It just occurred to me that I never posted this interview here. Dr. Jonathan Singer, founder of The Social Work Podcast, was gracious enough to invite me to be interviewed as part of his podcast series:

“An Overview of Trauma-Informed Care

Today’s episode of the Social Work Podcast looks at Trauma Informed Care, one of the most promising approaches to working with people without causing additional trauma. And I had the honor of talking about Trauma-informed care with Nancy Smyth, professor and Dean of the School of Social Work at the University at Buffalo.”

via The Social Work Podcast: An Overview of Trauma-Informed Care: Interview with Nancy J. Smyth, Ph.D..

What was especially fun about doing the interview with Jonathan was that we coordinated the release of my interview with the interview that Jonathan Singer did for the inSocialWork podcast  (the podcast sponsored by our school, the University at Buffalo School of Social Work).  He was speaking about his work on The Use of Creative Arts as a Community-Based Suicide Prevention Effort — a really fascinating topic! Please check it out.

  1. Dear Dr. Smith,

    I listened to this podcast when it was first published, and was truly impressed! I saved it in my podcast player, for reference and support. The world, including the world of mental heath, is in desperate need of truly understanding what effective trauma-informed care involves. Your efforts, determination, and exposure on this topic, is truly a blessing.

    Warmest Wishes,
