Stephanie Mines, PhD
Dr. Stephanie Mines is a psychologist whose unique understanding comes from her academic research as well as her extensive work in the field. Her stories of personal transformation have led many listeners to become deeply committed to the healing journey. Dr. Mines understands shock from every conceivable perspective. She has investigated it as a survivor, a professional, a healthcare provider, and as a trainer of staffs of institutions and agencies. Her blend of Western and Eastern modalities offers the best of both paradigms. She is devoted to ending the lineage of shock and trauma for individuals and the world.
Dr. Mines is the Program Director of the DOM Project, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing alternative health options for a broad spectrum of populations. As Director, she is responsible for disseminating information to communities in need, especially people suffering from illness that results from shock and trauma, survivors of domestic violence, families and children, and people living with neurodiversity including autism and other sensory integration challenges.
Dr. Mines’previous book, We Are All in Shock: How Overwhelming Experiences Shatter You and What You Can Do About It, (New Page Books, 2003), presents a comprehensive application of the healing system she has developed. Presently, she is working on a net book concerning the impact of war from the perspective of families and children who experience the effects of a returning veteran with PTSD or combat shock. The titles are still in process.
