As a queer, nonbinary therapist of color who actively engages in community organizing, traci ishigo will share personal anecdotes and discuss themes of how creative action, solidarity, and transformative justice can support a sense of wholeness, hope, and healing—particularly around trauma that is intergenerational and perpetuated by the state.

Rob Fisher, MFT
Therapist, Hakomi trainer, professor, author
One of the most common causes of trauma is generated by issues in our intimate, family, friendship, and work relationships. Classical symptoms of PTSD—flashbacks, emotional flooding, rumination, sleep disturbances, and startle responses—are often present, intense, and inescapable. In this session, Rob Fisher explores the causes and effects of relationship trauma, along with practical tools for addressing the symptoms and underlying issues involved from a mindfulness-based, somatic perspective.
Rob Fisher is the author of Experiential Psychotherapy with Couples: A Guide for the Creative Pragmatist and a number of book chapters and articles published internationally on couples therapy and the psychodynamic use of mindfulness. He is also the founder of Mindfulness-Centered Couples Therapy. An advocate of the use of mindfulness and present experience in psychotherapy, he is an adjunct professor at JFK University. As the codeveloper of the Mindfulness and Compassion in Psychotherapy Certificate Program at California Institute of Integral Studies, he has brought together many of the leaders in the realms of mindfulness and psychotherapy in one of the only programs in the US that not only teaches the skills of psychotherapy but helps participants develop their internal state as well. He is a speaker at conferences and workshops around the country such as CAMFT, USABP, Psychotherapy Networker, the Couples Conference, and the Relationship Council where he presents as a peer, master, or keynote speaker. Teaching internationally, he is a Hakomi Mindfulness-Based Experiential Psychotherapy trainer and a director of the Hakomi Institute of California and the Hakomi Institute of China.
