John Bradshaw: On Peter Levine and Bessel van der Kolk

John Bradshaw John Bradshaw

As part of its ongoing video series, The Meadows presents an 11-part interview with John Bradshaw, world-famous educator, counselor, motivational speaker, author, and leading figure in the fields of addiction and recovery.

In the ninth video of the series, Mr. Bradshaw praises his colleagues at The Meadows - the senior fellows and clinical advisors who have helped make it one of the nation's leading treatment centers for addiction and trauma.

"A treatment center is no better than the people doing the treatment," he says.

Mr. Bradshaw then addresses the important contributions to the treatment of trauma, PTSD, and sex addiction made by people including Pia Mellody, Peter Levine, Bessel van der Kolk, and Maureen Canning.

"We really have some stars, some excellent people," Mr. Bradshaw attests. "It's really a beautiful thing to be part of The Meadows."

He has enjoyed a long and mutually beneficial 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. In recognition of Mr. Bradshaw's contributions to addiction recovery, an on-campus lecture hall has been dedicated in his honor.

Identified as one of the most influential writers on emotional health in the 20th century, Mr. Bradshaw has changed the lives of millions of people around the world through his writings and sold-out workshops and seminars. His New York Times best-selling books include Homecoming: Reclaiming and Championing Your Inner Child, Creating Love, and Healing the Shame That Binds You.
