I started to listen to podcasts as I drive (which I drive weekly for work) I haven’t really found any podcasts that I have stuck to I have just been bouncing around from Podcasts to Podcasts. Today I found duff who so far is really easy to listen to and within one episode of listening I have found several helpful tips that I am going to start implementing into my daily life.

I have learned so much listening to these podcasts.

Ready to be pathologized by a DSM-thumper?

I find it incredibly irresponsible of any mental health practitioner to not be up-to-date on the latest research on trauma. Trauma is pervasive and undercuts the need for many diagnoses. He frequently thumps the DSM-V as a bastion of mental health pathology, but the DSM is, well, pathologizing. Anyone with a comprehensive understanding of trauma would back off from pathology. Stop pathologizing people’s healthy adaptations to unhealthy circumstances. If you’re struggling with any kind of mental health problem, I implore you to check out Judith Herman’s “Trauma and Recovery” and Bessel Van Der Kolk’s “The Body Keeps Score.” When the world understands how pervasive trauma is, the DSM will become largely useless as we move toward holistically (ie viewing a person as multidimensional, rather than as a list of symptoms) healing trauma. This might have something to do with C-PTSD being denied entry into the DSM-V despite ample research.
