If you heard last week's episode, you know it's possible to heal our brains in a variety of different ways. One of those ways is through Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy, a powerful tool to help patients move forward, or as Dr Lili Wagner so perfectly stated "move past our past." In this episode, we dive deeper into EMDR, discuss the benefits, who it may be good for, and who it might not find it a great fit. About: Dr. Lili Wagner is a Licensed Psychologist in California with over 20 years of experience.  She works with adults and the elderly, specializing in trauma as well as the psychological ramifications of having a chronic illness or autoimmune disease.  She is certified in EMDR, CBT, and has several health coaching certifications.  Due to her own chronic health issues, Dr. Wagner uses a holistic mind, body, and soul approach to therapy.  During her spare time, she loves to cuddle with her dog, enjoys movies, music, dancing, and spending time with her family.  Support the show

In this episode, Janina discusses her career in learning, treating, and teaching about PTSD and Complex PTSD. She discusses being inspired when hearing Judith Herman talk about how that the events in one's life shape our experiences, as opposed to just being driven by childhood sexual fantasies as was the main viewpoint based on Freud's work. She explained how the prevailing thought in treating trauma for decades has been that the client needed to tell the story of the trauma, but we have no research that proves that view. Instead, she proposes that the way to treat trauma is to change one's relationship to the symptoms, rather than re-live the event. She discussed her experience working with Bessel Van Der Kolk, and how he encouraged her to teach about working with PTSD. Additionally, he encouraged all of his clinicians to be trained in a Somatic approach, which lead her to Sensorimotor Psychotherapy training and to EMDR. She discussed her work and how she helps clients to engage their frontal lobes, the thinking brain, and works with clients as fragmented, incorporating Internal Family Systems and working from a Structural Dissociation perspective. We discussed how she treats suicidality in trauma clients as a part trying to protect the client from being overwhelmed by vulnerability. She discussed how her model, Trauma Informed Stabilization Treatment (TIST) is an integrative approach, incorporating parts work, EMDR, somatic, and Structural Dissociation, and she is training others in her model throughout the world. Finally, we discussed the clients' experience in therapy and working with them where they are, as the client who has experienced trauma may not be able to “trust” the therapist enough to try something new. Janina Fisher, Ph.D. is a licensed clinical psychologist and a former instructor at the Harvard Medical School and former instructor at The Trauma Center, a research and treatment center founded by Bessel van der Kolk. She is known as an expert on the treatment of trauma, and has also been treating individuals, couples and families since 1980. She is past president of the New England Society for the Treatment of Trauma and Dissociation, an EMDR International Association Credit Provider, and Assistant Educational Director of the Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Institute. Janina lectures and teaches nationally and internationally on topics related to the integration of the neurobiological research and newer trauma treatment paradigms into traditional therapeutic modalities. Janina is the author of Healing the Fragmented Selves of Trauma Survivors: Overcoming Self-Alienation (2017), Transforming the Living Legacy of Trauma: a Workbook for Survivors and Therapists (2021), and The Living Legacy Instructional Flip Chart (2022). She is best known for her work on integrating somatic interventions into trauma treatment, and the development of her approach Trauma Informed Stabilization Treatment (TIST), which one can be trained in by going to https://therapywisdom.com/healing-the-fragmented-selves/.

Join us as we discuss a holistic approach to treating anxiety and depression with Dr. Peter Bongiorno. Did you know you can get depressed and anxious from not pooping everyday? Or not getting enough fatty acids and fiber in your diet? As evidenced by the growing research, our current lifestyle, foods we're eating, the stressors we have, the lack of sleep, and the lack of exercise are major causes of mental health issues.    Brain function is directly related to what's going on in the gut, so when we make improvements to the gut microbiome, sleep, movement routine etc. we see major improvements in mental health and clarity.     Dr. Peter Bongiorno graduated from Bastyr University after completing five years of medical training in naturopathic medicine and acupuncture. He authored Healing Depression: Integrated Naturopathic & Conventional Treatments, the first comprehensive textbook designed to teach physicians how to use the science and art of natural medicine to heal depression. Dr. Bongiorno is vice president of the New York Association of Naturopathic physicians, a member of the American Association for Naturopathic Physicians, Physicians for Social Responsibility, and has a diploma in acupuncture. He helped create the first elective Natural and Integrative Medicine Class at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine, and regularly guest lectures to medical students about natural medicine and acupuncture. He has been regularly interviewed on national and local television as a natural medicine expert, and writes for national media. He regularly writes articles for the Dr. Oz and Sharecare websites, and as an invited expert blogger at Psychology Today. Dr. Bongiorno is also a major contributor to the third and fourth editions of the Textbook of Natural Medicine.   Connect with Dr. Peter Bongiorno: Website: www.drpeterbongiorno.com Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/peter.bongiorno Book: Put Anxiety Behind You Book: How Come They're Happy and I'm Not?   Episode Takeaways: Holistic approach to managing mental health Focus on root causes, rather than managing symptoms and patchworking That means spending time listening to patients or applying a comprehensive patient form to study prior to seeing the patient  There are a lot of clues as to what might be causing mental health issues when you ask the right questions    Causes of this mental health epidemic From 2003 through today, suicide rates alone have skyrocketed, and suicide rates in women especially, have doubled The opioid epidemic is one cause Current lifestyle, foods we're eating, the stressors we have, the lack of sleep, the lack of exercise are more likely the cause Family history plays a small role in this too    Is anxiety the beginning of a snowball effect for mental health? It certainly can be People will go on for years with anxiety at some level and it basically burns their system out Inflammation tends to go up, nutrients get depleted, the adrenal system doesn't work, people start sleeping poorly, and circadian rhythm gets all out of balance Altogether, these dilapidated functions in the body can wreak havoc on a persons mental health In addition, when we have predispositions to poorly functioning mitochondria, that's also going to play a role in depression   How does trauma affect mental health? Childhood trauma, what they call adverse childhood events can alter your ability to cope with stress, anxiety, depression Prenatal stress, when you're in the womb and your mom's really stressed out, that's going to change the set points of your stress system, too EMDR work and energy healers can help unlock some of the blocks that the brain and body create when there is trauma   How brain function relates to the health of the gut microbiome  Robust research showing the very strong connections between the nervous system in the digestive tract If there's a lot of inflammation in the digestive tract, we'll find a lot of inflammation in the brain How balanced the germs are in the microbiota and the digestive tract will directly affect what is made, and what happens in the brain   Fundamentals of mental health when treating a patient Listen for these top three: One, how often do they poop Two, how is their sleep Three, are they happy at their job and in the household   Why do we sleep? We power down so that the mitochondria, which are those energy packs in our nervous system, can fix themselves and clean themselves up and break down and make new ones So that our system can de-inflame and can detoxify Glutamate is a good neurotoxin but when we don't sleep and there's too much of it, then it becomes a problem, and it'll contribute to anxiety, depression, schizophrenia, bipolar, and more FYI - some of the top drugs to induce sleep are actually very bad for you. Those drugs are shown to increase all mortality by about 300% Can acupuncture be helpful? Yes, at least for many people It can help to relax the nervous system, it can help induce balance back in the body,and it can help to induce sleep. All without requiring much from someone The place between your eyes is called the third eye and it is a very powerful meridian that can induce relaxation. You can press on that when you are stressed to get a little relief however acupuncture will have a more profound effect   Why is pooping everyday important for mood and mental health? There is a lot of scientific literature and evidence showing the relationship between  constipation, IBS, or constipation, and higher rates of anxiety and depression Daily movement is important for good motility - There's no way we can get rid of the toxins that our liver is putting out, no way we can balance hormones, and there's no way we can keep the microbiota in balance and keep those germs in balance there if we aren't moving our bodies Water is also very important for motility - if you don't have enough water, the colon's job is to extract water from the poop which can lead to constipation Essential fatty acids and fiber are great for the gut and brain as well A few other key things that help working on stress and getting people to either meditate or work on why they're stressed, or get a massage, or do castor oil packs on their stomach, things like that to help bring the circulation back to the digestive tract   Connect with Kiran and Dr. Beurkens: BetterBiome.com Instagram: better.biome Instagram: Microbiome Keynotes Facebook: Microbiome Keynotes Instagram: Dr. Nicole Instagram: Kiran Krishnan

Değerli zamanını, enerjini ve kaynaklarını iyi değerlendirebileceğin bir adrese ihtiyaç duyabilirsin. Bu yüzden iyi bir psikoterapi uzmanı mesleki ve kişisel olarak donanımlı olmalıdır. Bu amaçla lisans ve yüksek lisans eğitimimin dışında yurt içi ve yurt dışında birçok uzun süreli psikoterapi eğitimi aldım.

Videolar üzerinden birçok değerli bilgiyi öğreneceksin ama bunları gerçekten sindirmek ve hayata geçirmek emek ve zaman gerektiriyor. Eğer bu çabayı göstereceksen kanalımın takipçisi olabilirsin. Psikolojik sorunların tanı, değerlendirme ve çözümü için bir uzmanla (klinik psikolog ve psikiyatr gibi) yüz yüze görüşmek gerekir.

Why the more EFT Tapping you do, the easier it is to move forward with your personal inner work goals. The origins of EFT Tapping and how someone actually came upon by accident. Gary Craig | EFT Tapping How often and when on average someone can do EFT Tapping to help heal trauma. [9:30] Differences between EFT Tapping, EMDR, and Talk Therapy Breaking down how EFT Tapping is different from other techniques like EMDR and talk therapy. What often leads people to try EFT Tapping after other healing practices like talk therapy. How EFT Tapping helps uncover where trauma is being held in the brain and throughout the rest of the body. The Body Keeps the Score by Bessel van der Kolk Why some areas of the brain like the amygdala, the limbic system, and other autonomic areas do not respond to spoken language and that's where EFT Tapping comes in to neutralize it.

How EFT Tapping will really bring up trauma that needs to be healed even if somebody is spiritually bypassing with yoga, meditation, or other wellness practices. The fact that it's okay if you're not ready for EFT Tapping or to move forward after one session; go at your own pace and seek guidance when you need it.

Power Quotes From The Show Combining EFT Tapping & Talk Therapy "Clients that are coming to me have often already done talk therapy 95% of the time and they have learned a lot from it but they're still having panic attacks, trauma patterns keep repeating or they're still having trouble in their relationship. So, where EFT Tapping comes in, and it's a beautiful compliment to talk therapy if people want to do both, is we're getting after where it is held in the brain... ..We're really going after fight or flight and the limbic or the emotional brain. As you talk while you tap, you're really going after the non-verbal part of the brain. You may know why you're having these panic attacks, phobias, addictions or anxious thoughts but you can't stop it until you tap to go after the brain that doesn't recognize spoken language and neutralize it." - Amy Piper Healing Emotional Weight & Trapped Emotions "Often people come to me with weight issues that they want to heal and so I work with them to go back and figure out when did this all started and what was going on in their life at the same time. Just by asking five to six questions, I receive a wealth of information to help them begin including asking, 'What part of this is emotional weight?' Not just diet and exercise but the emotional component and subconscious thoughts as well such as, 'I need this weight to protect me,' because it insulates me from the pain I'm feeling." - Amy Piper Healing Trauma: Peeling Back the Layers "EFT tapping actually doesn't take a long time to help people clear out their trauma so it doesn't have to be a painful process. Some times, for each specific area you want to work on it may only take 3-5 sessions. With each session, you're rapidly peeling back the layers of the anger, resentment, shame, and any other emotions you're feeling. You do have to go through it to heal but I think EFT really provides a safe way to feel and release." - Amy Piper Links From Today's Show  Tapping for Truth Use the code 'JOSH' in your subject line and message to Amy for a 15% discount for the 1:1 sessions and a 10% discount for the EFT trainings.

She works with people both in person and virtually in 1:1 sessions. She also conducts EFT Level I and 2 workshops to train others in EFT, as a tool for themselves, or for professionals to add to an existing healing practice. EFT stands for Emotional Freedom Techniques, more commonly known as 'tapping.' She began her journey with EFT as a client over 15 years ago. Having direct experience with this transformational work, she felt called to train and become certified in these techniques. EFT is commonly referred to as “emotional acupuncture.' It not only releases emotional distress but also goes beyond to reverse negative core beliefs. She loves it because it is powerful and works quickly. Amy's Work in EFT Tapping & Speech-Language Pathology Her formal education is as a speech-language pathologist; I completed my Master's in speech sciences and embarked on this career nearly 20 years ago. She enjoyed working with people specializing in the area of brain injury/trauma within speech pathology, however, she often felt that something was missing. She was working primarily with people who had experienced a traumatic event as part of a rehab team of professionals. When she encountered EFT (tapping), she realized this was the piece that had been missing. EFT has the power to heal traumatic experiences/memories that are held in the body and energy system. Releasing these traumas/painful experiences can have a profound effect on one's health. About the Science of EFT Tapping EFT brings Chinese Acupressure and modern psychology together. It combines gentle tapping on key acupuncture points while focusing your thoughts on physical pain, unhappy memories, uncomfortable emotions, traumas, fears/phobias, or any other problem. EFT works to “smooth out” the energetic disruption between thoughts/ memories and an emotional reaction. The emotional factors that contribute to the problem are typically released along with the energy blocks. The tapping is working directly with the limbic brain, specifically the amygdala, where our stress response (flight/flight) is controlled. Tapping has a direct and immediate effect to down-regulate the amygdala. It's a powerful tool to clear recent traumas or things that happened all the way back in our childhood/early years. As we identify certain patterns in our lives or belief systems that no longer serve us, we can tap to clear these patterns. This allows us to live from a more neutral and joyful place.

Dr. Sue went from working for an advertising firm in Manhattan, to completely changing her life by becoming a naturopathic doctor.     At the same time, she faced her own chronic health challenges, including Lyme disease and severe migraines. It was by addressing a past trauma that completely changed her health. She finally understood why “she is the way she is” and how to support herself to heal.     If you don't remember before the age of 7, that is a sign of an early childhood trauma. Working with a shaman, she felt supported to discover the wounds that had been hiding her past.    If we don't know what is making us feel stuck and sick, we could be experiencing physical and emotional pain without realizing there is something we can do to change it.     Dr. Sue processed her trauma using EMDR, EFT, cranio-sacral therapy, homeopathy, flower essences, and drainage therapy. And now Dr. Sue guides her patients to recover from their chronic illness by addressing trauma. She starts by talking through their life chronologically, looking for events and experiences that happened starting from a young age.     -    In this episode, Dr. Sue and I also talk about how:    -There can be fear to do this work.     -We tend to turn to alcohol, food, and other substances or choices in order to avoid looking at our trauma.    -We have to feel safe to feel the feelings we haven't felt.    -Often, with a history of trauma, gentle approaches are better, and actually essential.    -It is common to be so sensitive to even treatments that are helpful.    -   When looking for a therapist to help you, it is important to choose a therapist who is trained in trauma recovery. There are many forms of therapy to help get to the core of trauma. We can recover from trauma. The nervous system can heal. It's worth putting in the time and effort to do this work.     -   This is such an important topic to me. In the book – Master Your Stress, Reset Your Health – I talk about the effect trauma has on our health, and how my Stress Recovery Protocol has been successful in helping me and my patients resolve trauma.     If you don't already have the book, I recommend reading it and reaching out to me so I can guide you to get the most out of it on your path of recovering from trauma and chronic illness.     https://www.amazon.com/Master-Your-Stress-Reset-Health/dp/1953295576/ref=sr_1_3?crid=6637XBIABVCE&keywords=master+your+stress+reset+your+health&qid=1636056186&qsid=140-1654189-8016956&sprefix=master+your+stress+reset+your+health%2Caps%2C88&sr=8-3&sres=1953295576%2C1623157803%2CB078K93HFD%2C0195311353%2CB086NKCNNK%2CB06XY3GFDS%2C019531140X%2C1455535451%2C1733994602%2CB07ZY3CTGF%2CB07W8KHTGL%2C0195311345%2C0975572229%2CB079H53D2B%2CB017PO8492%2C1623366054&srpt=ABIS_BOOK    -   Connect with Dr. Doni:    Facebook HTTPS://FACEBOOK.COM/DRDONIWILSON   Instagram HTTPS://INSTAGRAM.COM/DRDONIWILSON   YouTube HTTPS://YOUTUBE.COM/USER/DONIWILSONND   Weekly Wellness Wisdom Newsletter: HTTPS://DOCTORDONI.COM/WWW     -   Books and Resources:    Order My New Book: https://DoctorDoni.com/msrh      https://www.amazon.com/Master-Your-Stress-Reset-Health/dp/1953295576   Stress Warrior Book (FREE)  HTTPS://DOCTORDONI.COM/STRESSWARRIOR      Stress Warrior Stress Resiliency Facebook Group (FREE)  HTTPS://FACEBOOK.COM/GROUPS/STRESSWARRIOR     7-day Stress Reset (FREE)  HTTPS://DOCTORDONI.COM/STRESS-RESET     HPV & Cervical Dysplasia Guide (FREE)  HTTPS://DOCTORDONI.COM/HPV-AND-CERVICAL-DYSPLASIA-GUIDE/     -   Personalized Solutions:    If you'd like to meet with Dr. Doni one-on-one for your health, request a Health Breakthrough Session: HTTPS://DOCTORDONI.COM/BREAKTHROUGH     To get an idea of more comprehensive options, read about Dr. Doni's Signature Consultation Programs: HTTPS://DOCTORDONI.COM/SERVICES   Disclosure: Some of the links in this post are product links and affiliate links and if you go through them to make a purchase I will earn a commission at no cost to you.

When we hear the word imagination, a variety of things may come to mind. Maybe it's two kids playing a pretend game or maybe it's a fantasy television show or maybe it's even a comic book with some creative characters. What we don't typically think about is EMDR therapy. In fact, when we think about imagination and EMDR, our training might even tell us that what we're looking at is dissociation. That's why today, I want to open up a conversation about the relationship that we, as clinicians, have with imagination. We know that, for children, imagination holds the key to so much of what we know to be human development. Imagination is what kids use to play, and to learn, and to try on different identities and cognitions. It's a powerful tool that so many children use to process their day to day life. So, y'all, when our adult clients are reprocessing childhood trauma and a cartoon character or some other imaginative figure comes in, I want you to pause before you write this off as dissociation. Take a moment to recognize that you may actually be exactly where you need to be: in their childhood neural networks and narratives. Then take a moment to recognize that your client may be doing exactly what they need to be doing in Phase 4: connecting those childhood narratives to the present, adult narratives. We put so much pressure on ourselves to identify when our clients are dissociating in Phase 4 that we're quick to react with the assumption that we need to bring them back to target or back to the present. But what if, instead, we were to take some time to let imagination do the job it was meant to do? I imagine we'd be offering a resource to our clients that we didn't even know they had. Listen to this podcast episode to learn more about imagination and EMDR therapy. ----- Are you ready to re-imagine your private practice?

THE BODY KEEPS THE SCORE is an intimate conversation with NYT bestselling author Dr. Bessel Van der Kolk about the connection between ADHD & Trauma and about the importance of helping our children co-regulate within their environment. A psychiatrist by training, Dr. Van Der Kolk has been a pioneer in trauma research for decades now and leads the Trauma Research Foundation. His 2014 book “The Body Keeps the Score,” quickly became a bestseller. And although the book was first released seven years ago, it currently sits at No. 1 on the New York Times best-seller list. Bessel van der Kolk MD spends his career studying how children and adults adapt to traumatic experiences, and he has translated emerging findings from neuroscience and attachment research to develop & study a range of treatments for traumatic stress in children and adults. He has focused on studying treatments that stabilize physiology, increase executive functioning and help traumatized individuals to feel fully alert to the present. This has included an National Institute of Mental Health funded study on EMDR and a National Center for Complimentary and Alternative Medicine funded study of yoga, and, in recent years, the study of neurofeedback to investigate whether attentional and perceptual systems - and the neural tracks responsible for them - can be altered by changing EEG patterns.

Clinical Considerations When Working with Asian Immigrants, Refugees, and Dreamers: An Interview with Soo Jin Lee Curt and Katie interview Soo Jin Lee, LMFT on the clinical implications of working with Asian American immigrants, refugees, and dreamers. We explore how best to assess these clients, specific clinical considerations related to the immigration experience (and legal status in the country), and ideas for working with these clients clinically. We also talk about the impact of societal views, media portrayals, and representation on AAPI clients. An Interview with Soo Jin Lee, LMFT Soo Jin Lee is a co-director of Yellow Chair Collective and co-founder of Entwine Community. She is a licensed marriage and family therapist in CA and has a special focus on training and consulting on Asian mental health related issues. She is passionate about assisting individuals find a sense of belonging and identity through reckoning of intersectional identity work and those that are navigating through difficult life changes.   In this podcast episode, we talk about what therapists should know about Asian American immigrants, refugees, and dreamers In preparation for Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage month, we wanted to dig more deeply into specific issues relevant to the AAPI community that are often not discussed in grad school or therapist training programs. What assessment questions should be included for AAPI immigrant clients? How to assess and ask about the immigration story (including about whether someone is documented or undocumented) The assumption of citizenship status during the assessment Exploration of cultural values and family dynamics The definitions for refugee, asylum seekers, immigrant, undocumented immigrant, dreamer Looking at reasons behind coming to the United States as well as legal status in the country   What is the impact of societal views and media portrayals of Asians on AAPI clients? The common stereotypes and the gap in the representation in the Asian diaspora The typical portrayal of undocumented immigrants from Latin America, Mexico, etc. Lack of representation in the media of the broad experience of being an undocumented immigrant or refugee The misrepresentation of families being all documented or undocumented (it's actually a mix of statuses) Language, cultural and values differences between the generations   What are the unique clinical issues for refugees and undocumented immigrants? “We call ourselves dreamers, but at the same time the dreams tend to be a lot smaller or not attainable because there are also educational barriers and there are financial barriers as well.” – Soo Jin Lee, LMFT The uncertainty of staying in the country The hidden traumas and the fear of being kicked out The lack of planning for the future Education and financial barriers to pursuing the future Trauma and PTSD are key elements, but sharing the story means that their survival is at risk   How do therapists more effectively work with refugees and undocumented immigrants in therapy? “Provide a safe enough space and perhaps a more creative space, so that the story, the entirety of their journey, does not have to be nitpicked and talked about in a verbal manner. Are there modalities that you can adapt as a therapist, that they can go through in their mind, in a story book, in an art format, or any other way… that they can tell their story without being asked and interrogated about their story?” – Soo Jin Lee, LMFT The fear and risk involved in disclosure and the challenge of talking about identity Exploring their story creatively, without nitpicking or having to interrogate or make them verbalize their story The importance of building trust and building a safe space within therapy Bringing the mainstream media into the session Addressing fear and decision-making Soo Jin Lee's healing journey to become a therapist and advice for other dreamers   Our Generous Sponsors for this episode of the Modern Therapist's Survival Guide: Turning Point Financial Life Planning Turning Point Financial Life Planning helps therapists stop worrying about money.

I'm Curt Widhalm with Katie Vernoy and this is the podcast for therapists about the things that we do, the things that we should be aware of in helping our clients and making the therapy a better place. And we are joined today by Soo Jin Lee, LMFT, and director of the Yellow Chair Collective, and wanting to have a really good conversation today about working with immigrants and refugees. Particularly, we're going to focus this episode around working with Asian clients, Asian immigrants and refugees, some of the considerations that we should have and how this fits within kind of the broader discussions around immigrants. And we're working with these kinds of clients that we've either ignored or not really had a great conversation about. So welcome to the podcasts. Thanks for joining us.   Soo Jin Lee  02:05 Thank you for having me.   Katie Vernoy  02:06 We are so excited to have you here and have this conversation. You and I met like almost probably a year ago and talked about this. And so I'm so glad we were able to make this happen. The first question we ask everyone is who are you? And what are you putting out into the world?   Soo Jin Lee  02:23 Yeah. So as Curt introduced, my name is Soo Jin Lee, I'm a licensed marriage and family therapist and the director here at Yellow Chair Collective. I guess a little bit about me outside of that is I myself am also an immigrant. So I am what's considered a 1.5 generation immigrant. And that just means that I came here at a very young age. I will also talk about this a little bit, I'm sure within this podcast, but I also grew up as an undocumented immigrant. And so those are aspects that I would love to introduce everyone to today.   Curt Widhalm  03:02 So we usually start with questions to help people in the learning process. This is not a shaming sort of question. This is a if we can prevent people from making the same mistakes that other people have made in the past. But what do therapists typically get wrong in working with immigrants and refugees?   Soo Jin Lee  03:22 Yeah, so one of the biggest things that come to mind for me is not having a proper assessment questions, or maybe even just having a lot of fear, general fear around asking clients about their immigration story. Right? When I say immigration story, I imagine that when people see me when I went to go see a therapist, my therapist also never bothered to ask me about my immigration story. So she'd never, in the span of two years, found out that I was an immigrant, and that even I was an undocumented immigrant, which speaks to a big chunk of my life, right. And so those are missing pieces, I think, in the therapy room, oftentimes, because those are not asked. So the therapists don't really get a full picture of a lot of immigrant and refugee experiences or the family of origin backgrounds. And I think this comes often for the case for a lot of mono lingual clinicians that are speaking English. And they find themselves sitting with a client that also speaks English very fluently. So then the assumption is that we're both American citizens sitting in the room together, right?   Curt Widhalm  04:46 There seems to be a lot of space for assumption in here and wondering if you could maybe give a little bit more guidance as far as like, on one hand, I don't want to assume that you're American by birth, but also don't want to assume that you're in immigrant just because you would appear different than a monolingual like clinician. I can see this potentially going both ways here and you have maybe a recommendation for people working with communities outside of their own backgrounds to maybe navigate that line a little bit.   Soo Jin Lee  05:20 Yeah, for sure. And I think one of the things that we'll go into detail about a little bit later is about how to frame and ask these questions. But I think the first thing is to quick get into the mindset of when you're assessing a client, just as much as you're asking them about their trauma history, that you get into the habit of asking about their cultural values and backgrounds and belief systems, which not only includes their immigration story, but it also includes their spiritual backgrounds as well.   Katie Vernoy  05:51 I would imagine that even just broadly asking about family and about cultural values, that that would be something that would organically come up. Is that your experience?   Soo Jin Lee  06:01 Exactly.   Katie Vernoy  06:01 Your immagration story?   Soo Jin Lee  06:02 Yeah, exactly. Right. And so when the therapist was asking me and I often are asking about family dynamic issues, or things that are impacting barriers that your parent and you are having, oftentimes, the immigration story is part of that if they are immigrants or refugees.   Katie Vernoy  06:23 It seems like there's a knowledge here that we need to have that we don't quite have yet. And so I want to ask more of a basic question, which is we're kind of using immigrant, refugee and undocumented immigrant, can you help us kind of make sure that we're all on the same page on those definitions?   Soo Jin Lee  06:40 Yes. So let's start by definitions, the fun stuff, right. All right. So I'm going to add another term to this conversation as well. Another definition as well. But first things, let's define refugees, right? This is a term that is being thrown around a lot on the news right now. So refugees are people who have fled their own country, because they are at the risk of serious human rights violation and persecution, from where they're residing, right. They're fleeing their country, they're fleeing their home. Okay, so those are widely known as refugees and can be defined as being refugees. Now, another term that I want to define that you didn't ask, is asylum seekers. And the reason why I want to do that is because on the news, they're also used, you know, interchangeably.   Katie Vernoy  07:34 Yeah.   Soo Jin Lee  07:34 Yeah. So asylum seekers are exactly the same, like a person that is leaving their country and seeking protection from persecution and serious human rights violations from their own country, but who haven't yet been legally recognized as a refugee, and they're waiting to receive the decisions for the claim of their asylum. Right? So there's kind of this legal status, that is the difference. So on the news, they're kind of thrown around, you know, interchangeably. But if a client is defining themselves to be either asylum seeker or refugee, that really speaks into kind of this political legal status of standing that they're in, in this country. So now we go into immigrants then. And immigrants, like I identified myself as an immigrant, right, are people that have made a conscious decision to leave their country, their home and to move to a foreign country and their intention of moving is to resettle there, right, to not go back home and relive there but to resettle into this new country. So we have a lot of immigrants in this country, right. A lot of people come from other places around the world and their intention and they make that decision very consciously. They plan for this immigration journey. And they intend on resettling here making this into their home, right. A lot of the reasons for resettling, a lot of people ask me this too like, what why do people want to live here? Why the United States? Some of them with a little bit of a snarky attitude, right, like why would anybody want to live here? Right. And there's a bunch of reasons. So I can't tell you exactly what those reasons are. And that's for you to find out with your client.   Katie Vernoy  09:37 Sure sure.   Soo Jin Lee  09:38  There are that immigrants if they're the refugees, and you know that these are two different kind of journey that they have gone through, if they're refugee, they've really left out of a need, while for immigrants to they do leave out of a need oftentimes, too. But for refugees, really they had no choice but to leave. But for most of the times, a lot of immigrants did would have the choice to leave. Now I'm gonna add to that just a little bit. Because for me, as I've introduced myself, it was kind of a unique, where I didn't really get a choice to leave, but I am still an immigrant too, right. And so an undocumented immigrant are people who are born in another country, but have no legal status in the United States. You know, it's funny, because as I was kind of preparing this, and I was trying to think about how to define these kinds of terms, I read an article that was defining undocumented immigrants as foreign born person who does not have legal rights to remain in the United States. Right. And so when I saw this definition, I felt like, wow, this is perfect portrayal of how many Americans think about undocumented immigrants, right, that they don't have any rights to be here.   Katie Vernoy  11:03 Hmm, interesting. Yeah.   Soo Jin Lee  11:07 So my definition is that I just don't have or had in the past, a legal status here, a document that tells me my identity as anything here in the United States.   Curt Widhalm  11:20 You're talking about dreamers. Right.   Soo Jin Lee  11:22 So dreamers? Well, I do identify as dreamers, but undocumented immigrants or anyone that does not have any legal status in the United States.   Curt Widhalm  11:32 Okay.   Soo Jin Lee  11:33 Yeah, dreamers, I identify as dreamers. And that's another term where they came so with their parents, as young children in the United States, and became undocumented through that journey, right.   Curt Widhalm  11:49 Okay.   Soo Jin Lee  11:49 So an example of that is, and you can add this too. So the reason why I was undocumented is because my parents came here with a ToR visa, a visitor's visa. So a visitor's visa in the United States from where I'm from, allows you to stay in the United States for up to six months. Their intention was to overstay the visa and resettle here. But they could not find any other way of staying in the United States. Without having found a job in the six months of visiting the country, right, which they really couldn't, they couldn't find a right sponsor and the job. So then, during the time that my parents were looking for a job that would sponsor them to become residents, we all became undocumented. And then, during the time, where that sponsorship, was gained and lost, and this whole process of becoming a resident, I ended up becoming 21 years of age and older, which meant that my parents were able to gain their residency status, where I had to now be an adult here by myself, applying to become a resident. So that defined me to be a dreamer. Dreamers are under this umbrella of undocumented immigrants.   Curt Widhalm  13:22 So depending on the mainstream news source that people watch, there's some different portrayals of people. And I think that that has created an overarching narrative around some of these terms, and especially around you know, as you're describing undocumented, and refugees, and I don't know that the media necessarily separates them as well as you do here. Katie, and I is born and bred, people from America, we have a different perspective on how the media portrays immigrants. How are from your side of things, how are Asian immigrants portrayed? And what does that impact like?   Soo Jin Lee  14:04 Yeah, that's a really good question. So Asian Americans in general, right, whether they are immigrants, whether they're refugees, whether they're undocumented, or and all of these terms, whether they were born here, or whether even they might be fourth or fifth, sixth generation Americans, they're all portrayed into this box. And often this box is painted as Asians with lighter skin color, often East Asians, and often a lot more recently, too, as wealthy or quote unquote, Crazy Rich, right? They're often portrayed to be smart, law abiding, but not yet citizens. They're still foreigners, but they are law abiding right? So there's this huge gap of representation in the Asian diaspora. So geographically, Middle East, Southeast Asians are still part of Asia too. Right. But in the United States, it really seems that how Asian and Asian Americans are displayed is really just one way in one picture. And I fall under that category to as Korean American as East Asian, often I find myself seeing people that look like me have my colored skin being displayed on the media. But yeah, they don't really have the full scale of experience that I carry, right. They're usually very wealthy, I have no idea what they, how those people got their wealth. But often, right, that those are the stories that are being told. And none of the other stories get to be represented in the media.   Katie Vernoy  16:02 Or it seems like if they're represented in the media, there is this kind of sinister tone to it. And there's kind of a negative portrayal. And so I guess the question I have we've, we've had some of this conversation before, we've talked a few times about the model minority myth, we've talked about kind of some of the representations in the media, but but like, holding this conversation into immigrants, refugees, and undocumented immigrants, it seems like that experience is a bit different than the folks that are fourth, fifth generation, those types of things. Because I think there's, there's something that we're missing, when we don't have that full perspective. So maybe speaking into that would be helpful for our audience today. And we'll link to the other episodes in the show notes so people can dig deeper into kind of the broader topic of AAPI mental health.   Soo Jin Lee  16:52 Yeah, for sure. And so going off of that a little bit. So then when you think of undocumented immigrants, right, oftentimes, there is absolutely no portrayal or representation of Asian immigrants in that picture in that light at all. Right? Oftentimes, you are seeing on the news of people from Mexico or Latin America, Central America that are crossing the border, or they're criminals, or they are portrayed to be drug dealers, and undocumented immigrants, for a lot of them, although around half of them are from either Mexico or Latin America. A lot of the other half are from all other parts of the world, and a big chunk of that are Asians. And yet, we're not being displayed in that way. Right? We don't We are not represented in that manner.   Curt Widhalm  17:50 What's the impact on people growing up without that representation?   Soo Jin Lee  17:55 A lot of the things the, I guess, the commonly shared concerns that undocumented immigrants and refugees have, first of all, most of the immigrants and refugee families when we also think about them, it's that family unit that we think are all immigrants, or refugees, right? Because that's also portrayed in the media, like all the families are coming together to have this survival. But in the United States, most immigrants and refugee families are what we like to call a mix immigration status. Right. So one of the examples of that is, of course, what I've mentioned, right, where my parents became president, and then now citizens were I wasn't able to I was undocumented. Right. So there's this mix immigration status within one family unit. So I read that about two thirds of children of undocumented parents, right. Have US foreign citizen, kids. So then they also have a lot of this, you know, mixed status within families. Right. And then there's also children, like me, who move to the country at a young age and then stay undocumented. And then their parents got status. So there's a lot, right. Commonly shared concern that this family unit can have is this gap, right? between parents and children. There's a huge gap of sometimes language barrier, but cultural barrier and value barriers to an understanding each other. And so these are things that a lot of our clients, my own clients are bringing to the table of being able to kind of discuss, hey, here's my identity as this one person And my parents do not share that identity in a similar manner, or their struggles are looks so different from me. And yet I'm trying to figure out how to connect with them, and connect with myself and connect with the community. And so these are very, very common struggles that I hear.   Katie Vernoy  20:20 I'm thinking that you have two clients, similar age, potentially similar heritage, you know, let's say both are Korean American, and one is a refugee and one or, or an undocumented intergroup immigrant. And you can decide which one is more relevant here. And one is fourth or fifth generation. I may make assumptions if I don't understand the different stories, but But what might be the nuance there of what I need to be aware of for this client that has either refugee undocumented immigrant status, like what what what are the things that are important for me to be aware of separate from kind of the experience as an Asian American, or Korean American in the United States?   Soo Jin Lee  21:02 Yeah. So as undocumented or refugee immigrant, that daily struggles of unhidden trauma that they endure, can look really different. If you can imagine, if you're an undocumented immigrant in the United States, you always can be thrown out of your home at any time of the day, they literally come to your door, say pack up your things, and then you're headed to the jail, where then you will wait to be sent to the airport, and then out of here. For a lot of undocumented immigrants like me, who consider themselves to be dreamers, this is our home. This is where we grew up, we have no other home, we have, oftentimes, the dreamers may not even speak the language of their parents origin or where they come from themselves, right? So then there's this continual fear of is this going to be it. So a lot of times, you'll find that we call them dreamers, we call ourselves dreamers. But at the same time, the dreams tend to be a lot smaller or not attainable, because there's also educational barriers. And there's financial barriers to right. Undocumented immigrants also suffer from the fact that after you graduate from high school, you may not be able to go to college, because oftentimes, undocumented immigrants need to go through this whole other other paperwork in order for them to be admitted, and pay for the tuition. And out of college, if they do get through college, then how to find a job, right. Without documentation, oftentimes, they are unable to find employment, or when they do, it's what's called, you know, under the table, pay, right? So then this whole question of what is my future going to look like? I want to become this or that I want to be an engineer, just like everyone else. And I'm told that in America, that we can fulfill this dream, right? I'm told I can be anything. Except I'm not an American. So that dream is not really applicable to me. Right? What I have to think about is, what I'm, what am I going to do to survive here? What am I going to do to obtain status here so that that dream can come true? Right, so this extra barrier, extra concern, extra fear, that is always in the back of their minds.   Curt Widhalm  23:48 What do you recommend for therapists to do to work with this? I mean, there seems to be such great existential exploration here. But a lot of existential stuff can kind of come with the, at least the traditional ways that it seems to be taught comes with the security of at least you have this time in this space that is going to be yours. But what do you recommend therapists do in working with clients presenting with kind of this fear that's kind of constantly always sitting there?   Soo Jin Lee  24:20 Yeah, so I think for a lot of therapists, you're pretty familiar with being able to work with trauma, and being familiar with working with PTSD. And so the first thing that I do want to note is for a lot of undocumented immigrants and for refugees, sharing the story oftentimes meant that they their survival was at risk. And it speaks true still for undocumented immigrants that are living here, right. For refugees, that might mean that back home that that was the case, if they identify themselves in a certain way or if they find And if people find out or the government finds out about their their identity, their status, then they might be murdered, right? For undocumented immigrants here, if their undocumented status becomes known to the public known to the government, anybody reports them, or anything like that, there's always the fear that now my home is going to be taken away, my everything will be taken away, right. So there's always that fear. So being able to come to therapy, and to be asked to speak on your identity, to speak on your journey is quite a huge gap of what's being told for you to do on a survival basis. Right. And to get to that story, I think, takes a long time of building rapport. And, of course, that is the basic of all therapy. But really, though, to treat it, treat it very carefully, and being able to provide a safe enough space, and perhaps a more creative space. So that perhaps the story, the entirety of their journey, does not have to be nitpicked and talked about in a verbal manner, right? Are there modalities that you can adapt as a therapist, that they can go through in their mind, in a storybook, in an art format, or any other way in a motion format, right? That they can tell their story, without having to be asked and interrogated about their story.   Katie Vernoy  26:39 I feel like I want to know more about what you're describing here. Because this I think I'm understanding but I don't want to make, I want to make sure I'm not making assumptions. So you're talking about putting creative methods forward.   Soo Jin Lee  26:53 Yeah.   Katie Vernoy  26:54 Tell me more. I'm still kind of trying to sort this out.   Soo Jin Lee  26:56 Okay. I don't know. So, I really love utilizing EMDR as part of my practice. And I know brainspotting can be another another one that goes off of EMDR. Because it utilizes the body, and it goes through the journey of people's trauma without having to verbalize it. I think that's a perfect example of how people can go through processing their fear and trauma responses, without having to tell me about it.   Katie Vernoy  27:29 That makes sense. Thank you.   Soo Jin Lee  27:32 Yeah. Another thing EMDR is definitely not for everyone. And it may not be very acceptable for some of my clients too, especially some of the older older folks. They really don't like having to move their eyes or, you know, they they really don't understand, like, Why Why am I keep tapping myself. So, so then I introduce just another format of like, being able to draw out their story. So literally trying it out, like is there a color that represents how you're feeling is there, or a rock or any item on your on your table that you want to tell me about? Right, that speaks to your culture, that speaks to your value. So then we're talking about this headband, that's sitting on their table, we're talking about sensory oriented things, too. We talk about the weather a lot, actually, as a way to imagine and use imagery of going back into their place of origin. Because weather exists everywhere, it's a common thing that we are experiencing. And we are using our sensories to connect with it all the time, connect with ourselves, and our sense of belonging in the world is oftentimes through temperature through weather through the humidity in the air. So then we talk about that, and we talk about in comparison to how it was back in your country as well, right. And so then that brings about a little bit of healing in a way I get to explore, I get to talk about my other self, or my other parts that I was told that I have to be hiding. And I get to bring that in here without being interrogated.   Curt Widhalm  29:25 And like you said earlier, this for clinicians who are coming from different backgrounds takes a lot of time to develop that trust and that ability to create and honor the space and the stories of people being able to tell them in their own ways. You know, one of the things and this is totally not on our list of questions, but one of the things that I've seen a lot of excitement about is even just kind of the positive representations of like the movie Turning Red coming out that has really opened up a lot of these stories and opportunities to talk about things in ways that haven't necessarily been so mainstream that clients, clinicians are really resonating with as an opportunity to say, oh, yeah, this is this is now something that allows for me to connect to this in a way that you might not have understood before.   Soo Jin Lee  30:22 Yes. What is the question in that?   Curt Widhalm  30:25 There is not a question.   Soo Jin Lee  30:30 Okay, yes, for sure. I think if I were to kind of just add to that, yeah. For a lot of clinicians, you can do a lot of research now, on looking at these shows, and being able to bring that into the therapy room, I think being able to talk about some of the mainstream media, that is how they are portraying certain cultures, and how clients they resonate with that or not resonate with that, what the differences are, what were you drawn to, what emotions came out of you from that watching that? Those are really good conversations to have about their family immigration journey, or they're just their own understanding of their, their own cultural backgrounds.   Katie Vernoy  31:14 I want to address a couple of things. I know, we don't have a lot of time, but I want to address a couple of things that you've talked about, because I think they're just so visceral to me. And I think that that element of fear, and dreams are small, and some of these ideas around when you have either an undocumented status, or if your refugee status maybe is at risk, depending on I know, there's a lot of different ways that folks are able to seek refugee status. And I know that there's some folks that have to keep reupping it every, you know, whatever, few years, those types of things. And I think it can be extremely hard to build a life when you don't know if the future is what the future holds. And so maybe a little bit more into that topic, because there's the trauma, of course, and I love how you talked about kind of assessing that and being able to heal that. But I'm a practical person, I'm like, Okay, well, part of our mental health is being able to set a course for our lives and be able to do some of these things. And I know that just doesn't sound like it's completely possible. So maybe if you can talk a little bit about how you walk in that space of finding mental health and wellness, while also knowing that these fears are completely justified. And this temporary status is something that that really does impact folks on a day to day basis.   Soo Jin Lee  32:41 Yeah. So when we talk about how fear interrupts their day to day basis, then we're getting into more of the behavior and the cognition of what what it looks like on their day to day and how it impacts their day to day, right. So if the client is interested in working through their decision making, because the fear is getting in the way of making certain decisions of, for example, let's say should I even accept this college? Because I'm not even sure if I'm going to continue into graduation? Why bother? Right? Now, that's a mindset and a cognition, and that belief system that we can work through, within whatever, you know, therapists modality of choice in order for them to achieve the whatever it is that the client wants to achieve. Is it that they really want to go into college, but the fear is getting getting in the way, right. Another thing, I think, on a very practical level, is just the level of anxiety and the threshold that they're living with on a day to day basis. So then the fear response, and the trauma response comes out in a way where it's oftentimes is insomnia, within their relationships. Right. So those are things that I think, as mental wellness practitioners can really provide the tools for, right on a day to day basis of like, okay, what are you eating? What, how are you sleeping? And are these things that we really should be concerned about? Right.   Katie Vernoy  34:15 And just the the final question that I have is, is about, you're walking this journey yourself. And so I'm thinking about our audience members, who are also undocumented immigrants or folks who are in this space and you've accomplished becoming a therapist and doing those things, but it seems like it's something where there would be some additional things for our health, mental health providers who are in these spaces to be able to take care of themselves and to think about their journey as a therapist. And so kind of the survivor guide element for our our therapists who are, are grappling with being undocumented or being a dreamer.   Soo Jin Lee  34:56 For me, I think I and everyone has their story of why they became a therapist. For me, I became a therapist because of my immigration journey. And that practice of finding myself, my story, my voice, and how to even understand that was the healing journey for me. And I found that through working with others that were telling about their story and was willing to open up their lives, their emotions, their family dynamic issues with me, I think. So oftentimes people find understanding, through relating their stories with others. The theme of what we're talking about today is how we're not being represented enough, that we're not being seen enough, we're not being heard enough, right? In all these different aspects of layers, in the media, in the government, through this whole legal journey. So I think what I want to say is, finding myself was the most healing thing that I could have done for my community at the end.   Katie Vernoy  36:28 I love that.   Curt Widhalm  36:30 Where can people find out more about you and the work that you're doing?   Soo Jin Lee  36:34 So you can find us at yellowchaircollective.com and on Instagram at YellowTreeCollective. We provide individual, family, couples therapy services. But the unique thing that I think we're providing is the cultural specific identity issues. And the support groups that built around those issues. Right, we have a support group, just called the Asian American Experience support group. And although we wanted to make it a little bit of a therapy group, where people can be doing doing a lot of processing, which we do, but we call that a support group, because we realized that a lot of people outside of California were in need of mental health support and community spaces that they couldn't find it within their own states. So that we expanded it to be a support group. That way anyone in the United States can find us and sit in this online space, and hear other people's stories like and connect and relate and find healing and that   Curt Widhalm  37:48 We will include links to all of that in our show notes.

This week we are exploring the walk of life author of the book Unfreezing Trauma: My Private Journal of EMDR Recovery, Mary Held.  In her mid 30's Mary started experiencing seizures in her arm. This would be the first of many debilitating symptoms Mary would face over the coming years.  After multiple doctors and incorrect diagnoses, Mary learned of EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) treatment and decided to pursue it.  After 16 EMDR  sessions Mary found herself free of the symptoms she had been dealing with for years and a sense of mental freedom.  Mary has since dedicated herself to spreading the word about EMDR therapy in hopes that it can save somebody just like it did for her.

Oooo girl! Today on the Whole Life Podcast I pull away the veil of what happens in a Christian Intensive Therapy Session. When I bring people into an Intensive, we offer them a cozy, safe, and welcoming place. The client and I go deep from 9-5 which gives us the opportunity to develop a therapeutic relationship throughout the day rather than it taking multiple sessions. I have the incredible opportunity to share tools and invite the Holy Spirit to come as we encounter him together. You start with stability tools that assist you in grounding yourself and we lay the foundation to work on a deeper reconstruction of your heart. As we move through the Breakthrough Intensive, we unearth the unmet needs from your childhood and spend time encountering Jesus as your Father who gives you a felt sense of a parent. A Breakthrough Intensive encapsulates the best practices of therapeutic tools for YOU! We may use Art Therapy techniques, EMDR technology, and cognitive restructuring to forgive yourself and the perpetrators of your past. Beloved, we take your traumas and put them under the white linen. A Christian Intensive Therapy Session offers a time of deep healing and rich peace! Offerings: Does a Breakthrough Intensive sound like an opportunity you want to continue in? Dr. Barbara's Breakthrough Intensives provide the opportunity for rich healing and internal discovery. Spend 1-3 days with Dr. Barbara in Raleigh, NC as you unearth trauma wounds from your past and encounter Jesus for supernatural healing. Click here to begin your journey.

Ep 39: Clinical Reasoning and Standard Protocol: How to trust the process when the script isn't working

Y'all know that I believe EMDR is magic. And I think, among the many reasons, the magic of EMDR lies within its structure. It can feel safe to hear and repeat the message of “stick to the script and trust the process.” And while the message has a positive intention, it's just not good enough. In fact, it's basic. And EMDR is too sophisticated to be basic. At first we see the benefit of this message with our peers in basic training exercises and single-incident trauma clients in our practices; it feels reassuring and so we internalize it. But then something troublesome can happen. When a complex trauma client walks through our door and the line-by-line script doesn't offer what that client needs, we get cold feet with EMDR. And not only do we lose trust in the process, but we lose trust in ourselves. Sticking to the script and trusting the process should no longer be the default message in basic EMDR training or Facebook comments for those seeking consultation. We deserve more nuance than that because we are far beyond basic. So, I'd like to offer something different. What if this idea just meant that we believe in the power of EMDR, the value of the 8 Phases, and that we trust the AIP model? And what if we used this as encouraging blueprint instead of a line-by-line script to be repeated? If we can alter the way that we value the structure of EMDR, we can alter the relationship that we have with ourselves as EMDR clinicians. Listen to my most recent podcast to understand how we limit ourselves with this message and what we can do instead. You deserve to trust yourself because EMDR is magic… and so are you. ----- If you're looking for clinical consultation that's going to offer you frameworks and insight to strengthen your EMDR training, I encourage you to check out The Consultation Program.

Сегодня в гостях у Вероники Сидоровой Каминат Касимова - психолог, психодраматерапевт, EMDR-терапевт, геносоциограмматист - практик. Мы назвали эту беседу “Помощь предков”, и она о том наследстве, которое каждый из нас несет в себе. Это особая связь с далеким прошлым, отпечатанная в душе и теле любого человека невидимым узором, рисунок, который влияет на то, как мы сплетаем полотно собственной жизни. Поэтому так важно помнить, что за нашими плечами стоят те, кто были здесь до нас, и обращение к ним может стать источником великой силы. Тема генограммы бывает окружена обманчиво мистическим флером, но на самом деле не имеет никаких магических корней. Все дело в генетике, которая повторяет и передает будущим поколениям то, что уже было создано. И когда дело касается людей и их жизненного пути, то каждый становится продолжением не только ДНК своих прародителей, но и начатых ими историй. Тот опыт, который довелось переживать вашим бабушкам, прадедушкам и более далеким предкам будто вшит в вашу кожу, и отделить личное знание от глубинного опыта, переданного из прошлого, бывает трудно. Травмы, драматические события, исторические надломы и личностные дилеммы, через которые прошли представители вашего рода - достаются в наследство вам. Трансформируясь и видоизменяясь, они все равно продолжают быть. Отказываясь изучать их, мы превращаем наследие в слепое пятно, и тогда оно, как все, что мы не осознаем, получает над нами безраздельную власть. Оборачиваясь назад, пытаясь рассмотреть в темноте прошлого лица людей, которые предшествовали нам самим, важно понимать, что их наследие - не набор ошибок и грехов, за которые нам придется держать ответ. За каждым из нас - сила и достоинство, красота пути во всей его сложности, моменты счастья и любви, трудности и решения. Все, что было прожито членами рода, не осталось напрасно брошенным, не растворилось во времени. Как песчинки можно бережно пересыпать из одних ладоней в другие, от одного человека - следующему, так горести и радости прошлых жизней передались вам издалека. И теперь ваша очередь проделать свою часть работы - просеять сквозь сито этот драгоценный песок и добавить что-то от себя, для тех, чья жизнь еще предстоит. Приятного прослушивания. Знакомьтесь с командой «Ответ» на нашем подкасте и выберите того, кто вам по душе.

All relationships are susceptible to hurdles & conflict--resentment, attachment injuries, navigating mental health, unhealthy coping strategies, overcoming societal conditioning, trauma, and more.

We know that every experience has feelings attached to it. And, as therapists, we're apt to listen to and validate those feelings for our clients and (hopefully) for ourselves. And learning, just like all of the other experiences in life, has feelings attached to it. And while we would typically create space for the feelings that come up, in Phase 4 we tend to pick and choose what feelings we think are appropriate for this time. Reprocessing in Phase 4 is just learning, y'all. And for our clients (and for us), there are going to be feelings that show up as this happens. Our job is not necessarily to interfere with these feelings because we believe that something else should be happening. Our job is to understand if that frustration, or other feeling, is clinically relevant. And spoiler alert, oftentimes, it is. I've identified the 5 questions that I ask myself whenever I'm feeling “stuck” in Phase 4 and my hope is that this framework will help you understand that sometimes “stuckness” is the clinical stepping stone you need to understand for your client.

Marriage and family therapist turned relationship coach, Kama Hurley, and I are on the same page when it comes to manifesting the relationship you're wanting. This episode covers so many valuable tools for anyone struggling to find the right person, or maintaining a strong relationship with the one you do have. After a series of unhealthy relationships and health issues, Kama realized she had to step back and slow down to not only manage her stress, but to awaken to what was not working in her life. She now guides women to work through their own stuff and let go of attachment to predetermined expectations so they can become more authentic and aligned. We talk about how from that place of clarity, you can choose a life in which you feel whole, complete and content and ultimately be able to attract the right person into their life, while repelling the wrong ones. If you want to get out of the same old patterns of relationship and find the right person who adds to your life, then this episode is for you.   Kama's bio: Kama Hurley has been working in the psychology field for the last 20 years. As a licensed counselor she runs a thriving private practice in Boise, Idaho and provides coaching to women who are ready to find healthy, committed relationships and break old unhealthy patterns. Kama uses several modalities in her psychotherapy and coaching practices including tools from neurosciences, EMDR, CBT and mindfulness. Using this eclectic tool box, paired with individualized treatment, she is able to get her clients get transformative results quickly.    Learn more about Kama: www.kamahurley.com https://www.instagram.com/kamahurley/ https://www.facebook.com/KamaHurley208/
