Jim Ellis & Dr Sara Gilman – Keeping the Peace

Welcome to The Healing Place Podcast! I am your host, Teri Wellbrock. You can listen in on iTunes, Blubrry or directly on my website at www.teriwellbrock.com/podcasts/. You can also watch our insightful interview on YouTube.

What a hope-infused conversation with Jim Ellis and Dr. Sara Gilman regarding the soon-to-be-released educational film, Keeping the Peace.

“A 30-minute educational film – titled Keeping the Peace – will be gifted to police agencies across San Diego and then the nation for in-house training of officers. The purpose? To bring awareness to the stresses and traumas experienced by officers and law enforcement personnel while on duty in order to empower them to normalize their emotional and mental responses to on-the-job experiences and to take action in alleviating, diffusing and treating the symptoms of trauma (PTSD), so that they can retain wellness in all areas of their lives.”

Jim’s Bio:

James Anthony Ellis is an award-winning playwright and reporter who owns Legacy Production, a San Diego production company that in 2012 produced the acclaimed “Indoctrinated: The Grooming of our Children into Prostitution.” An author of eight books and producer of 100 video presentations, Ellis is now working on a new educational film “Keeping The Peace” supporting law enforcement officers in their mental and emotional wellness.

Vic Compher & Rodney Whittenberg – CAREGIVERS Film

Welcome everyone!

I am excited to introduce Vic Compher and Rodney Whittenberg, co-producers of the award-winning film “Portraits of Professional Caregivers: Their Passion, Their Pain.” We engage in a deep and informative conversation about their mission, journey, roles in the development of this powerful project, and more.

I had the honor of viewing the film before speaking with them on air and found myself moved to tears. I connected with this film and the featured caregivers not only as a trauma-survivor, but as someone who has worked in the mental health field and school settings as a caregiver. So much appreciation and positive support sent to all of those who have answered the calling of caregiver.

A huge thank you to Vic and Rodney for sharing their film and insights with us all!
