The Meadows, America's premier center for the treatment of addiction and trauma, is pleased to present an 11-part video interview with John Bradshaw, senior fellow, world-famous educator, counselor, motivational speaker, author, and leading figure in the field of mental health.
In the 10th video of his series, Mr. Bradshaw talks about his long association with The Meadows and its people.
"When I was asked to come to The Meadows, I considered it an honor," he says. "They have some of the top people in the field."
He then describes some of those people and their contributions. Peter Levine, a pioneer on the impact of trauma on the body. Pia Mellody, whose intuitive genius and personal history helped make The Meadows’ treatment model accessible to non-professionals. Bessel van der Kolk, who shaped the field of PTSD. Maureen Canning, a leading expert in sex addiction and trauma.
"It's wonderful to be part of a class act," Mr. Bradshaw adds. "We give something to people, and they get something out of it."
Mr. Bradshaw has enjoyed a long association with The Meadows, giving insights to staff and patients, speaking at alumni retreats, lecturing to mental health professionals at workshops and seminars, and helping to shape its cutting-edge treatment programs. His New York Times best-selling books include Homecoming: Reclaiming and Championing Your Inner Child, Creating Love, and Healing the Shame That Binds You.
