    what is after severe trauma

    what is after severe trauma

    We devoted this episode entirely to one listener's question about what lies after severe trauma. The listener was sexually abused by their father though most of their family has not acknowledged this. Recently their father died and the listener expressed they'd always felt the feelings of trauma would go away with him, but they have not. This is a heavy but very useful episode, we are very fortunate to have Dr. Nick Barr with his extensive experience as a traumatologist to speak to. I just want to say how much I deeply appreciate the listeners of this show who share their difficult experiences with everyone. It is very generous to share these stories so that others might also learn and heal from them. I hope you find something useful in this episode. Self-care, hydrate, be well.

    helping with anxiety

    helping with anxiety

    I have bad adhd and while I certainly experience anxiety along with my depression, I have taken for granted my understanding (or more accurately lack thereof) in other people who experience really serious anxiety. So, I wanted to take this opportunity with Dr. Nick to own up to how I can make anxiety for my loved ones worse because I don't really understand it so all my instinctive coping mechanisms only make it worse for the person I love who is experiencing anxiety. So, this ep has good advice for helping those close to you with anxiety as well as for those with anxiety looking to help themselves.
    Okay, thanks a bunch, if you wanna support the pod you can get merch at www.mygoodbadbrain.com or by sending us some monthly cash at patreon.com/mygoodbadbrain

    violence for the nonviolent

    violence for the nonviolent

    Heyoooo so as the world continues in its revolutionary spirit and reactionary status quo fascists become increasingly belligerent and violent, I wanted to talk about violence again. And specifically why I think it's worth investigating violence especially for those of us who are disinclined to it. For those of us whom the idea of hurting another person is completely abhorrent. For those of us who are afraid of even the feeling of conflict for its proximity to emotional violence. So, y'know, we talk about it.
    Okay, be well everyone. Self-care. Hydrate.

    radicalizing

    radicalizing

    No one's free unless everyone's free. I had a lengthy mini brain breather at the beginning of this and then you can hear me and Dr. Nick go OFF about the state of the world. I do not believe we can expect true mental health if we are not living in accordance with our values and trying to liberate the oppressed around us, y'know? So. This is kind of about that. I don't know what I'm gonna be doing with my life, with content and my creations, but... the world is changing. I hope you get something out of this and I'll see ya next Sunday.

Like deep wine conversations with friends!

Seriously one of the most enjoyable podcast I have listened to in a while. It’s great to hear a podcast that talks about heavy hitting topics with such openness.
