    Rachael Dietkus : Trauma-Informed & Trauma-Responsive Design

    Rachael Dietkus : Trauma-Informed & Trauma-Responsive Design

    S2 E10
    **TRIGGER WARNING - This episode addresses the subject of trauma-informed and trauma-responsive design. Therefore, we discuss what trauma is in order to better understand the power of being  trauma-informed and taking into account the lived experienced of people who experienced trauma in any design process. If you feel triggered at any point, pause the recording, breathe deeply, be kind to yourself and reach out to a friend, a care provider or call a helpline if need be.  Put your needs first.**

    🙌 I've been wanting to interview Rachael Dietkus for a looong time, and so: Here she is! 🎉 Rachael is a social worker, a designer and a researcher. She's the founder of Social Workers Who Design.

    🤲 Whoever you are and whatever your job is, join us as we learn more about what trauma is, how it affects our life, personal and professional,  as users and as a service/care providers.  This knowledge might very well change your perspective on your life and your work! And always keep in mind what Rachael sums up so beautifully: "Trauma is anything we experience that is Too Much, Too Fast and/or for Too Long."

    Rebecca Root : Finding Your Voice

    Rebecca Root : Finding Your Voice

    S2 E9
    🎥 🎭 🎬 I'm excited  to offer you this long-awaited interview with British actress, Rebecca Root! Known for her versatility and spectacular presence, Rebecca's life and work has always profoundly moved and inspired me and, up until recording this interview, she had no idea :) 

    Her acting careers spans over decades in a wide variety of roles in theatre, movies & TV. You may have seen her perform in The Queen's Gambit, The Sisters Brothers, The Danish Girl, The Romanoffs & Boy Meets Girl. This summer, she plays Quince at Shakespeare's iconic theatre Globe in A Midsummer Night's Dream.
    We discuss the importance of connecting to our true self and bringing forth our unique voice in everything Life calls us to do.  I'm grateful for this moment of connection allowing me  to celebrate her contribution to a more just, diverse and inclusive world. Join us as Rebecca shares her inspiring journey!
