The Managing Violence Podcast is dedicated to the study of three core elements of the violence:

Trauma, Recovery, Revenge? Interview with Psychotherapist Ellis Amdur

Ellis Amdur has worked in the field of crisis intervention since 1989. He has developed a range of training and consultation services, as well as a unique style of assessment and psychotherapy. These are based on a combination of phenomenological psychology and the underlying philosophical premises of classical Japanese martial traditions. Ellis’s professional philosophy can best be summed up in this idea: the development of an individual’s integrity and dignity is the paramount virtue. This can only occur when people live courageously, regardless of the circumstances, and take responsibility for their roles in making the changes they desire.

Ellis is the author of 17 books including works on martial arts, crisis intervention, de-escalation and fiction.

In this interview, we breakdown the themes in his recent book Lost Boy which you can get here: https://geni.us/5lBOIJ
