MyNDTALK - The Trauma Heart - Judy Crane

The majority of people addicted to substances or process addictions such as relationship disorders, eating disorders, self-harming behaviors, gambling or pornography are trauma survivors. Many people caught in the web of addiction don't identify as trauma survivors until their personal, familial, intergenerational, and in-uterine history is exposed. Unfortunately, relapse is inevitable without trauma resolution that can only take place once their history is exposed. It is only when that happens that the behavior disorders will finally make sense." This is a conversation for those who have experience addiction and/or trauma!

MyNDTALK - Selective Mutism – Dr. Veronica Raggi

Selective mutism (SM), is best understood as a childhood anxiety disorder characterized by a child or adolescent's inability to speak in one or more social settings (e.g., at school, in public places, with adults) despite being able to speak comfortably in other settings(e.g., at home with family). Today, MyNDTALK is joined by Dr. Veronica Raggi of Alvord, Baker & Associates (Rockville, MD) to discuss what selective mutism is and is not.

MyNDTALK - Post Traumatic Growth - Jim Rendon

What if there's an upside to experiencing trauma?
Most survivors of trauma--whether they live through life-threatening illnesses or accidents, horror on the battlefield, or the loss of a loved one--can suffer for months, even years. But psychologists have discovered that Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder is only a piece of the whole experience. With the right circumstances and proper support, many trauma survivors also benefit after a terrible experience. They emerge stronger, more focused, and with a new perspective on their future.

MyNDTALK -Transgender Teens - Lisa Kenney

What do you do when your son announces he is transgender and asks that you call her by a new name? Or what if your child uses a term you've never heard of to describe themselves (neutrois, agender, non-binary, genderqueer, androgyne...) and when you didn't know what they meant, they left the room and now won't speak to you about it? Perhaps your daughter recently asked you not to use gendered pronouns when referring to 'her' anymore, preferring that you use "they"; you're left wondering if this is just a phase, or if there's something more that you need to understand about your child." Learn the answers to these and many more of your questions when you listen to this edition of MyNDTALK!

MyNDTALK - The Art of Flourishing - Dr. Jeffrey Rubin

In this crazy, chaotic world, we desire lasting intimacy: a close and deep-rooted relationship with someone who cherishes us--or, indeed, with ourselves. But too often being in an intimate relationship means we have to compromise, or lose, vital aspects of our personalities. How can we avoid sacrificing our own self-care to get the love we want? In this not-to-be-missed-conversation, Dr. Jeffrey Rubin brings the art of flourishing to life. His idea is startlingly simple: self-care is the foundation of intimacy, and intimacy is the culmination of self-care. Synthesizing the best practices from the traditions of Eastern meditation and Western psychotherapy, Rubin creates a new and accessible path to living authentically as a singular self and as part of a couple.
