Stephanie Mines, Ph.D.Founder and Program Director.
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’ 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. Her new books on the treatment of autism and sensory integration will be released in 2013 by Jessica Kingsley Publications. The titles are still in process.
