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.

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.

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.
