Marti MacGibbon delivered a funny, inspiring, and informative keynote speech and workshop at the Health and Human Services Agency, Self Sufficiency Services Division of Napa, California on June 10th. Administrators hired Marti to speak to social services and behavioral health professionals during their annual Staff Appreciation Day. Marti touched upon her powerful personal story, and provided insights into and sure-fire strategies for stress management, having more fun, getting and connected and staying connected to your authentic self and a positive support network.
I recently interviewed Dr. Steve Grinstead, AD, LMFT, ACRPS, CADC-II, on my radio talk show, Kickass Personal Transformation with Marti MacGibbon. Doctor Grinstead is a mentor and colleague, a renowned expert on addiction, relapse prevention, and addiction free pain management. I am honored to have him as a guest, and he has offered to return to the show on Monday, March 17th.
During his last visit to the show, Steve and I discussed addiction, pain management, cognitive behavioral therapy, (CBT), dialectical behavioral therapy, (DBT), and the amazing plasticity of the brain and its power to heal.
