    103. Denying Abuse + Abusing Power


    Today on the podcast I am looking at abuse from 2 main lenses:  The negative impact of people trying to deny (and justify) abuse The use of knowledge and standing to assert power and abuse others (by mental health professionals and others) These topics have come up a lot in conversation and in therapy, so I wanted to shine some light on what happens when people try to make excuses for abuse and what we need to keep in mind in terms of how to protect ourselves.  In this episode, I offer some warning signs and red flags, as well as some general considerations for practice. As always, this content is for educational purposes only and does not substitute work with a mental health professional. Topics covered: - What happens when people try to deny and/or justify abuse - Explanations are not excuses - we can understand/feel compassion, but there is still no excuse for abuse - Common excuses people use to justify abuse or gaslight others - What we can do to hold our own - Understanding the steps: Acknowledgement, Taking Responsibility, Correction, and Repair.  - What happens when people abuse of knowledge or their position to assert power and control - Common techniques people use to gaslight and manipulate  - Practicing disengagement To connect with me: BOOK AN APPOINTMENT Apple + Spotify, or wherever you get your podcasts. --- Send in a voice message:

    99. Trauma, Addiction, and Polyvagal Theory with Jan Winhall


    Today we are joined by Jan Winhall, MSW FOT, who will be talking to use about the Felt Sense Polyvagal Model and how we can us different modalities to understand and heal trauma and addiction. In her book, Jan draws significant links between trauma and addiction, and creates a framework for clinicians to apply to their practice.  "I started my career as a social worker/psychotherapist 40 years ago. I listened with non-pathologizing ears and heard shocking stories of sexual torture, and responses that confused me. Women were cutting themselves, burning their bodies, sucking on bars of soap, having compulsive sex with strangers, bingeing and purging huge quantities of food, and abusing drugs and alcohol. As I listened I learned that somehow these self-harming behaviors were “helping” them to escape intolerable emotional states. They were shifting their mood from flooding anxiety to numbing deadness, or vice versa. Because these behaviours were so helpful they were compulsively repeated and often became addictions."

    97. Gaslighting: What It Is and What To Do


    Hello everyone! I'm back for season 3 and I'm so excited for the content ahead!  This week, we are talking about gaslighting. It's a really hot topic these days, as it should be, and one of my favourites.  I'll be unpacking what gaslighting is, how it shows up (with examples), and what we can do about it.  Most importantly, I am shining light on some toxic behaviours and dynamics here, as well as what you can do when confronted with this. This is so critical, because when dealing with abuse, there are no excuses. We can understand, but it does not make it ok.  You deserve to feel safe, secure, and loved within yourself and your relationships. You deserve to feel seen and heard. I hope this can offer some support. Happy listening! Gen Angela  To connect with me: Apple + Spotify, or wherever you get your podcasts. --- Send in a voice message:
