September 3, 2018

In this episode Jake is joined by Katie Baskerville and Dana Livermont from Rapid City, South Dakota as they discuss school counseling and what school counselors do.

A school counselor is a member of the education team, and is someone who gives valuable assistance to students, helping them with their academic goals, their social and personal development, and with their career development. They work in public or private elementary schools, middle schools, and high schools.

School counselors make a positive impact in the lives of their students. Research supports the value of school counseling across a number of domains.

Many educators believe that teaching social, emotional, and behavioral skills to students is essential to modern education. Moreover, this can and should be the responsibility of the entire school community, as it reinforces student development.

Noggin Notes and SanoMind Episode: What is EMDR Therapy?

August 27, 2018

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), whoa that is a mouthful! Have you heard of EMDR Therapy?

As a therapeutic approach, EMDR is based on several theories of psychotherapy, including concepts of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). During an EMDR session, the therapist will ask the client to recall difficult thoughts and emotions. He or she will then instruct the client to continue thinking about these traumatic thoughts or past events while having the client to move their eyes from side-to-side.

It is that time again for our crossover episode from our partners SanoMind. We would like to introduce. Dr. Natalie Feinblatt, she is a licensed psychologist, specializing in Spiritually-informed addiction & trauma therapy in West LA or Online Using VSee. She will be helping us understand what is EMDR Therapy and how it could help you with your traumas.

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.

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.
