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.

In the second part of the show, Jake and Dave Reid, who is a Marriage and Family Therapist at Zephyr Wellness, continue the discussion on the Attachment Theory and how we are unable to regulate our emotions as individuals, we must have people help us process our emotions.

You may never have considered the way you attach yourself to others, described by psychologists as your ‘attachment style’, but it’s probably about time you did, because it affects every aspect of our relationships, from the way we choose our partners to how our relationships work day-to–day, and even how they end. Knowing what your attachment style actually is, where it comes from and how it’s played out is critical to avoid slipping into cycles that repeat themselves for the rest of your life.

Podcast Episode 43: Philosophical Musing with Dr. Christian Conte

May 14, 2018

We welcome back Dr .Christian Conte, who  is one of the most accomplished mental health specialists in the field of anger and emotional management. Jake and Dr Conte discuss the development of the Yield Theory, where Dr. Conte has been developing and teaching others for over 16 years.

"Yield Theory is a way to connect with others, and it is a way to understand others; but it is also a way for us all to understand ourselves. It is predicated on the fundamental assumption that if we lived every day as another person; not just walk a proverbial mile in his or her shoes, but actually had that person’s cognitive functioning, affective capabilities, and life experiences, then we would make every single choice that that person has ever made." - Dr. Christian Conte.

These inspirational women are Dr. Lauren Marsden, Founder and Owner of VSL Veterinary Clinic Cambodia and Martina Mayr, Founder and Director of Animal Rescue Cambodia.

The ladies discuss with Jake on the work they have been doing in response to the lack of animal welfare in Cambodia. A pet can be a great source of comfort, companionship and motivation for their owners. In many ways, pets can help us to live mentally healthier lives. So we were more than eager to team up with these inspiring ladies to give more awareness to both animal rescue and mental health.
