Today I am bringing back my annual debrief to the podcast. Looking back on 2022 has been fruitful and offered a lot of data collecting. You know I love to collect data and review what choices, behaviors, and commitments were kept and which of them were not honored.  But looking back has not always been a practice or something I enjoyed. In fact, it felt counterintuitive to me. I know many business spaces normalize this practice but a trauma-informed lens, plus working with hundreds of people over the years, has taught me that practices which in theory should be filled with ease can really stir up whatever echoes of burdens we are carrying. I feel like for most of my life has been forging ahead with little reflection on looking back. As a result, my inner system felt like it was dangerous to look back. But when I shifted to looking back as data collection, and not connected to my identity, worthiness, or safety, looking back became a part of my practice of curiosity, noticing, and integration. In fact, I can't not look back now, as I want to reflect on patterns, habits, experiences, and changes.The deep change we want in our lives, in our business, in our relationships, and in our well-being comes with regular reflection and data collection so we can make the needed tweaks and adjustments over time.Taking time, even into the new year, to truly reflect can even lead to unburdening. Protect this time. And honor the dreams and desires you have for the upcoming year by taking the time to collect the much-needed data that will help download what is in your head and heart into a lived experience. Listen to the full episode to hear:The many reasons I worked to embrace “slow” in 2022Why “space” and “pace” are my words for 2023How committing to space and pace will encompass honoring boundaries and commitmentsMy favorite movies, TV shows, books, and experiences of 2022Learn more about Rebecca:rebeccaching.comWork With RebeccaSign up for the weekly Unburdened Leader EmailResources:The BearThe Good FightSeveranceShining GirlsMiss MarvelShe-HulkStranger ThingsThe Lord of the Rings: The Rings of PowerLootWednesdayTurning RedNopeElvisLicorice PizzaThe SandmanSpiritedJuliaThe WatcherFor All MankindFrom ScratchEssential Labor: Mothering as Social Change, Angela GarbesConfidence Culture,Shani Orgad and Rosalind GillJournal of Radical Permission: A Daily Guide for Following Your Soul's Calling, Sonya Renee Taylor and adrienne maree brownWhat Works: A Comprehensive Framework to Change the Way We Approach Goal Setting, Tara McMullinThe Pain We Carry: Healing from Complex Ptsd for People of Color, Natalie Y GutiérrezStart Finishing: How to Go from Idea to Done,Charlie GilkeyEasy Beauty: A Memoir, Chloé Cooper Jones

Therapy on the Cutting Edge
Using Polyvagal Theory To Use the Nervous System to Help Clients Heal

Therapy on the Cutting Edge

In this episode, Deb discussed how she was inspired after hearing Stephen Porges, Ph.D. speak about his polyvagal theory, and found ways to use this theory in helping clients to heal. She explained that there are three states of the autonomic nervous system, which are the ventral (feeling regulated, safe, connected), sympathetic (fight or flight, activated), and dorsal (collapse, shut down, disconnected) and that there are cues that trigger these states. We discussed how emotions are the labels that we attach to these states, although the same states may have different labels (anxiety vs. excitement). She pointed out that our nervous system takes in information from three pathways, which are embodied (interoceptive or internal sensations), environmental (external cues), and between nervous systems (how our nervous system is reacting to another's nervous system). She discussed how the polyvagal theory allows therapists to help clients identify the cues that trigger these states, understand these states, and they also inform the therapist as they help coregulate the client through the therapist being in a ventral state. The polyvagal theory, she pointed out, sees these states in a hierarchy, where when the sympathetic is overwhelmed, then the person moves into the dorsal state of collapse or dissociation, and to move from the dorsal state, one must go back through the sympathetic, fight or flight, state to return to a ventral state. Deb discussed how we learn to move through this system through coregulation and we discuss how this plays out with parents and children and in couple relationships. She explained that survivors of Complex PTSD, who grew up in an unsafe and/or unpredictable environment, weren't able to get that experience of coregulation to internalize, so they had to regulate themselves, and these solutions may have become maladaptive. This also creates difficulty for the client because their experience is that people are dangerous, so it is dangerous to be in the presence of another, making coregulation very difficult. Part of the therapist's work with trauma survivors is to be able to help coregulate them in a ventral state, while they also access those other states while revisiting the trauma, experiencing the coregulation in the present while engaging with the experience of the past. She discussed techniques she uses with clients such as breathing techniques, connecting to memories of times in ventral state, using objects that cue a time when in a ventral state, and a discernment question where the person is able to reflect on whether the current activation is needed for the current situation, and notice, name, and then turn towards the nervous system experience. Deb Dana, LCSW is a clinician, consultant and author specializing in complex trauma. Her work is focused on using the lens of Polyvagal Theory to understand and resolve the impact of trauma, and creating ways of working that honor the role of the autonomic nervous system. She is a founding member of the Polyvagal Institute, consultant to Khiron Clinics, and advisor to Unyte. Deb is the developer of the signature Rhythm of Regulation Clinical Training Series and is well known for translating Polyvagal Theory into a language and application that is both understandable and accessible for clinicians and curious people alike. Deb's clinical work published with W.W. Norton includes The Polyvagal Theory in Therapy: Engaging the Rhythm of Regulation, Polyvagal Exercises for Safety and Connection: 50 Client Centered Practices, the Polyvagal Flip Chart, and the Polyvagal Card Deck. She partners with Sounds True to bring her polyvagal perspective to a general audience through the audio program Befriending Your Nervous System: Looking Through the Lens of Polyvagal Theory and her print book Anchored: How to Befriend Your Nervous System Using Polyvagal Theory.

One way to feel more thankful for things is to imagine life without them. Our guest tries a practice for seeing the bright side, even when you feel down. Episode summary: We know that gratitude is good for us. But what can we do when we're struggling to actually feel thankful? Our guest this week is author and podcast producer Stephanie Foo. Foo built a network of close friends around her in California, where she grew up. As a survivor of child abuse and Complex PTSD, her friends in California became her chosen family. And since she's moved to New York City, she finds herself often pining for the Golden State and the people she loves there. This week, Foo tries a practice in mental subtraction, which gratitude researcher Ernst Bohlmeijer describes as an antidote to taking things for granted. Imagining her life if she didn't live in New York helps Foo tap into gratitude even in the depths of winter – when she misses California the most. She even discovers her particular skill in getting the benefits of this practice by leaning into one of her PTSD symptoms. Later in the show, Ernst Bohlmeijer breaks down how keeping a gratitude practice can alter the emotions you're likely to experience in a given day, and maybe even change you as a person. Practice: Take a moment to think about a positive event in your life. It could be a career or educational achievement or a special trip you took. Imagine yourself back in the time of this event. Think about the circumstances that made it possible. Ponder on the ways in which this event may never have happened and write them down. For example, if you hadn't learned about a certain job opening at the right moment. Imagine what your life would be like now if you had not experienced this positive event and all the fruits that came from it. Remind yourself that this positive event did happen and reflect upon the benefits it has brought you. Allow yourself to feel grateful that things happened as they did.

Lisa Duez, LCSW, CSAC, EMDR Therapist and Approved Consultant and I help you understand the nuance of differential diagnosis with Borderline Personality Disorder, Bipolar Disorder and Complex PTSD. It is tough as a clinician to distinguish between these differing diagnoses sometimes. Lisa and I have years of experience and we are sharing what you need to understand to diagnose accurately. While most of us do not enjoy diagnosing, it is very important to understand what diagnoses we are treating so our clients can receive the very best and most appropriate care. The underlying causes for the symptoms our clients are experiencing often have very different treatment requirements so getting it right matters.

John talks about the stunning realization at age 45 that he had repressed more than a decade of sexual abuse and sex trafficking during his childhood, and the heartbreaking years that followed, which would cost him his health, his family and his career. John would eventually find healing in writing, publishing 2 books about his experiences, and appearing in several documentaries about sex trafficking.

Tonight's special guest is Valerie Todesco from Virginia Beach, Virginia, a survivor and activist who's the author of the BLOG vis4voice.blog. "I am an artist, a writer, and an advocate," she says, "always seeking ways to shine light into the darkness and offer hope for other adult survivors to find their way toward healing." She knows all about it. "My father died when I was two. I was the youngest of four. My mother remarried less than a year later to a man who molested me throughout my childhood. I was told to keep it secret to protect my mother who would die of a broken heart if she found out." Compounding her trauma was her older sister. "She continues to be a toxic abuser to this day, never having dealt with her own trauma issues." Her stepbrother, 18 when Valerie was 10, her grandfather, her sister's older boyfriend, a lifeguard at the pool. "I would freeze and go someplace else in my mind. I still struggle with dissociation in addition to ADHD, Depression, and debilitating Anxiety. I went on to spend the next 20 years married to two abusive narcissists. It was during that time I was diagnosed with Complex PTSD." Her life has been a struggle to maintain her sanity. "It wasn't until I took my daughter and left my second husband that my trauma began to manifest in new and paralyzing ways having progressed to episodes where I faint and freeze in the midst of certain triggers." She goes on, "As an Intuitive Empath I have always had a strong desire to comfort those who are suffering, feeling as if it is part of what makes my individual gifts so special. It is that ability to want to share love and joy that drives my desire to make a positive impact in the lives of others who suffer in the shadows of their own childhood trauma."

Jason Kander had heard of post-traumatic stress disorder. He just didn't think he had it. After all, he hadn't been in any firefights while stationed in wartime Afghanistan, he had merely worked as an intelligence officer. And even though that job put him in positions of tremendous vulnerability where he may have to kill or be killed in an instant, it never occurred to him that he was experiencing trauma.So when Jason got back stateside and remained hypervigilant, was destroyed by night terrors, patrolled his house with a gun, and was generally a mess, he figured it was something that would soon go away. As he waited for that to happen, he climbed the ranks of Democratic politics, eventually being told by Barack Obama that he should consider running for the highest office in the land.But you can't run from mental illness forever.

The mental load we all carry right now is next level.But just because this load is invisible does not make it any less important.  Kids, pets, aging family members, school, work, the economy, democracy, access to safe and affordable health care, chronic health issues - the list goes on and on, and feels like it keeps piling on without relief or end in sight. On top of this, we carry past pains and difficult life experiences too. And most of us don't realize how much pain we carry until we end up on the brink. Many people face systemic barriers that make that load heavier, and don't have access to time and resources to find relief. And we're also bombarded with messages like, “what doesn't kill you makes you stronger,” that make carrying a lot a badge of honor.What if our places of work cultivated spaces that supported healing instead of perpetuating over-functioning and over-working?If you want to cultivate spaces that have a greater capacity for discomfort, then you need to start with an audit of your own current capacity and all you are carrying. Today, Natalie Gutierrez is back for part two of our conversation about her book, The Pain We Carry: Healing from Complex PTSD for People of Color, and a deeper dive into the impact of carrying pain because of unaddressed trauma, toxic culture, and unrealistic expectations of ourselves and others. Natalie Gutierrez (she/her) is a Puerto-Rican psychotherapist, author, and speaker who grew up in native Lenape land, now known as New York City. Much of her work is dedicated to providing trauma-informed psychotherapy to Black, Indigenous, and other People of Color/Mixed race.

However they are never held accountable. A judge will often go off of what recommendation a licensed professional or CPS makes in "the best interest of the child."   In-depth conversation regarding Complex PTSD that is left behind by false allegations and CPS invading your home nearly destroying lives. Nicole talked about her own situation involving CPS where her child was taken away for a period of time and returned. Unfortunately Nicole and her family had to begin to start healing from the trauma of separation and the anxiety caused by false accusations that CPS responded to.

***TRIGGER WARNING: SA**********where do I even begin? this is the first time an episode has left me this speechless.I found meg by total fluke - my best friend Taylor started talking about this course.. and . she had mentioned this course quite a few times, how much she thought it would be beneficial to her, and how much she needed it. then one day, she got accepted. when she started taking this program, I noticed such a shift in Taylor.. a good one. it was amazing to watch my best friend grow before my eyes - to watch her blossom, to heal, to love, to accept, and to understand. Taylor has been a major part of my personal journey, and to watch her flourish like this, I had to know who was behind this.,.Trauma is REAL, and is something Megan and I share.. yet we have both found how to not allow our "defining moments" become our defining moments.this podcast was originally for trying to communicate with my ex husband.. he communicated best with sound, so I made the podcast in hopes that maybe by listening to my words through an earbud, he would finally get it.. plot twist, it didn't. and how fucking ridiculous does that sound? I actually kept all of the original episodes up, and in one of them I'm having a mental break down because of him. my marriage was one of the darkest parts of my life - between dealing with a book definition narcissistic sociopath, a spinal injury, the thought of losing my career, and being the most alone I'd ever felt, and I was pretty damn lonely as a kid, its left me at a loss of words most days, its left me feeling lonely, isolated, discouraged.I knew I didn't want this to define me. I just needed to grow through it. I needed to grow through my trauma...when I learned who meg was and what she did, I felt like it was a sign. it was a sign that I'm on the right path - that this pain IS trauma, and no one can make me feel less than. talking with her made me feel normal, despite this being an interview.Megan is a trauma informed coach. we dive into what her job entails, how she deals with it all, and how becoming a trauma informed coach has transformed her journey to self love. we discuss a little about being self made and an entrepreneur, but more importantly, the why behind what she does. she took a dark and scarring moment of her life and turned it into her biggest super power.I thank Megan for being so open, raw, and vulnerable with me on todays episode. her strength is admirable, encouraging, and makes the world feel a little less lonely.I not only thank her for coming on the podcast, but also opening up about her "aha" moment.. thank you again.here is more about her.

All of us. We navigate the vice grip of the pains from our past along with the pains from the present while trying to keep it all together. And when things break, we often carry the blame and responsibility for our pain because we've absorbed the messages that our struggles are our sole responsibility; neglecting to see the systems, the business practices, and the cultural norms that weigh us down, too.As a result, the desire to control our emotions and our environments runs deep.And our protectors are often on high alert editing our words, our tones, and how we express emotions–especially the difficult ones. But when we seek to control both our inner world and our external world as a means of creating safety, we end up having the opposite effect. To counter these toxic messages and systems, we need to do our own inner work and set the foundation for the capacity to make changes in the spaces where we live and work.When it comes to talking about the pain we carry, I could not think of a better person to have a conversation with on this topic than Natalie Gutierrez, author of the new book and aptly titled book, The Pain We Carry: Healing from Complex PTSD for People of Color.Natalie Gutierrez (she/her) is a Puerto-Rican psychotherapist, author, and speaker who grew up in native Lenape land, now known as New York City. Much of her work is dedicated to providing trauma-informed psychotherapy to Black, Indigenous, and other People of Color/Mixed race. She works with adult individuals struggling with Complex PTSD.  She is a proud mother of two, and a growing equestrian.Content Warning: Discussion of childhood abuse, neglect, racism, and traumas. Listen with care and if listening is too much for your system, don't push through. Honor the messages your body is sending and respect the need to pause if that is what's needed.Listen to the full episode to hear:How a formative experience in elementary school impacted Natalie's relationship with approval, assimilation, success, and hustleWhat happened for Natalie when her survival and coping mechanisms finally weren't enough to keep her goingHow Natalie's relationship to both her ancestral rage and personal rage have evolved from explosivity to friendshipThe importance of acknowledging and naming the shame behind our burdensWhy we have to accept external conflict in order to honor ourselvesLearn more about Natalie Gutierrez:Mindful Journeys Marriage & Family TherapyInstagram: @nataliegutierrezlmftThe Pain We Carry: Healing from Complex PTSD for People of ColorLearn more about Rebecca:rebeccaching.comWork With RebeccaSign up for the weekly Unburdened Leader Email

Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder Trauma is confusing. We can spend years of our life having no idea we are suffering from childhood trauma. It can be so severe that we might actually be experiencing a whole range of mental and physical health effects from it, but because it has always been our normal to feel this way, it can lead us down a path of just using a million different coping mechanisms to get through. In this quick chat episode, I am hearing from Sara who is a CPTSD Survivor, about how to spot complex trauma symptoms, what dissociation feels like and what are flashbacks.

Post-traumatic stress disorder is common among lawyers, but the culture we live in dictates that we do not talk about it or even take it seriously. So this conversation with Caroline Conway, a New York lawyer, was refreshing because she offered such profound insight to what it really is like to have not just PTSD but complex PTSD that adds more layers to the programming we adopt in our brain. As Caroline shared her experiences, there were so many moments where I was like, I'm not the only one! So I hope you also take away from this chat that whatever you may be going through that you think is not appropriate to talk about with others, that actually may not be the case. Let's get started.
