Podcast Episode: Tracing the History of Stigma

August 13, 2018

In this episode Jake discusses and takes us back in history, to understand how and why mental illness is stigmatized. 

Just like physical health, mental health has a significant impact on our well-being, and especially among youth, which has been an increasingly prevalent concern. Two hundred years ago, mental illness was not an ailment that drew much sympathy from the public. To those who were mentally ill in the Western world, specifically Britain, and her colonies, were ostracized and isolated.

Podcast Episode: Surviving The Storm: Vicarious Trauma

August 6, 2018

Vicarious trauma happens when we accumulate and carry the stories of trauma including images, sounds, and resonant details we have heard, which then come to inform our worldview.

The symptoms can appear much like those of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), but also encompass changes in frame of reference, identity, sense of safety, ability to trust, self-esteem, intimacy, and a sense of control.

In our latest episode Jake discusses the effects of Vicarious Trauma.

Noggin Notes and SanoMind Episode: Breaking the Mental Health Stigma

July 30, 2018

So what is this stigma we want to break? It is negative attitudes and beliefs towards people who have a mental health condition. It can lead to discrimination and those inflicted with a condition failing to seek or believe in treatment.

How terrifying is it that if you wake up tomorrow with the a disease of the mind that it might affect the way people will treat you.

We are happy to introduce the first of many crossover episodes we will be having with SanoMind! On this episode we have Suzana Sjenicic, a Counselor from Ridgewood New York. She breaks down the areas of mental health and opens dialogue in effort to normalize something that is known to be common but carries shame when kept secret.

Podcast Episode Reboot: Content versus Process with special guest Jesse Lott

July 23, 2018

This week we would like to reboot an episode that Jake had with guest Jesse Lott from Zephyr Wellness, to discuss deeper on the topic of Content versus Process.

It is not the language often spoken of in the world of relationships, but I think it is a highly relevant issue to address. It’s the idea of ‘how’ to do something, more than ‘what specifically to do.’ When two people can totally be authentic with each other giving each other space to be completely genuine to one another, this is what we call process, it helps communication and connection.

Podcast Episode 51:Seeking Authenticity

July 16, 2018

We have all identified who we are and what our world is, whether we are aware of it or not. While our identity may seem static, objective, and given in truth it is fluid, subjective, and chosen.

Jake discusses authenticity and breaks down the meaning of the analytic self.

Podcast Episode 50: Refueling Your Engine: Burnout and Compassion Fatigue

July 9, 2018

It is important that you check in with yourself periodically. If you do not then you may not realize that things are changing or getting out of control. Checking in with yourself allows you the opportunity to evaluate where you are in your recovery or life in general. You may find that you need to readjust what step of your action plan you are on or try different coping tools. 

Jake breaks it down and discusses the concepts of self care, burnouts and compassion fatigue.

Podcast Episode 49: Projection Discussion

July 2, 2018

Projection: An automatic process whereby contents of one’s own unconscious are perceived to be in others.

Just as we tend to assume that the world is as we see it, we naïvely suppose that people are as we imagine them to be. All the contents of our unconscious are constantly being projected into our surroundings, and it is only by recognizing certain properties of the objects as projections or imagos that we are able to distinguish them from the real properties of the objects.

Jake goes deeper and discusses the different layers of projection and how to identify them.

Podcast Episode 48: Immigration Stress

June 25, 2018

Jake welcomes Carmen English, she is a immigration attorney in Reno Nevada. They discuss in depth how the process of immigration can affect an individual’s mental health.

Stress is a major factor for all and it is usually job-related, but for immigrants, stress can be different. The human mind is same, no matter where one comes from. The stress of trying to find one’s footing in a new environment, the lack of social and family support, financial stress; different child rearing patterns due to cultural differences; cultural conflicts, along with silent racism and discrimination, can all contribute to poor self-esteem, lack of confidence and depression.

Podcast Episode Reboot: Fear

June 18, 2018

Shortly after posting the anxiety episode people asked about the roots of anxiety, which we often see as the emotion of fear. This week we see fit to follow up with a reboot of Episode 8 and we invite you to explore all the emotions in our emotional functioning series.

Jake discusses the emotion of fear in this episode. What is the adaptive function of fear? What does fear tell us is going on in our environment? In brief, fear tells us that there’s a threat or a danger present. It’s probably safe to assume that compared with our ancestors, in this day and age we have little to fear in our day-to-day lives. Why then in places like the US, Europe, and Australia is there a reported general increase in overall anxiety? Jake discusses fear (both rational fear and irrational fear) and anxiety further and talks about how the two are related.
