Charles Figley, Ph.D. is a founder of the emerging field of traumatology. He is a professor at Florida State University who codeveloped with Joyce Carbonelle the famous Active Ingredients Project that originally drew attention to the fast-acting therapies and the need to study new and innovative psychotherapies for trauma.
This presentation provides insights on the history and future of psychotherapy. It is warm, entertaining, moving and informative.
The talk took place at the first Power Therapy Conference (Denver, Colorado, USA, 1997), which was conceived by Michael Gismondi, LPC. It is presented here because of its historical and inspirational value, and because it covers issues of enduring importance to the field of psychotherapy.
