Harry Zeit MD, who last joined me on episode 416, currently works full-time practicing trauma therapy and psychotherapy. He is certified in sensorimotor psychotherapy, completing the final level of training in 2013, and he's a pretty incredibly inspiring individual!

Harry previously worked as an American board-certified emergency physician in Cambridge and Toronto, Ontario, between 1983 and 2005.

Harry is active in the Medical Psychotherapy Association of Canada and held the position of education chairman of the OMA Section in Primary Mental Health Care/GP Psychotherapy between 2011 and 2016.

He created the Caring for Self while Caring for Others Series to meet what he perceived to be a growing need for the medical profession to face challenges around unremitting stress and burnout, and to differentiate these physiology-driven processes from a mental health model which favored treating burnout as anxiety or depression.

Harry is an advocate for trauma-informed and humane medical and mental health care. He is passionate about teaching and about cultivating the healing potential of traditional modalities integrated with newer somatic and neuroscience informed models.
