Triggered by "The Homeless": Playing with Fear & Disgust
Show Notes

"I shouldn't HAVE to deal with this kind of thing!" This is a common enough statement when it comes to people's experience with the homeless. But what if "this kind of thing" isn't really about the people who are homeless...what if it's really about the fear and disgust you can't help feeling, and haven't been taught how to deal with? If this is you or someone you know, have we got an episode for YoU! Join @dramatherapistnina to explore your helplessness around homelessness, coming away with:  

  • Greater awareness of our inner emotional life; 
  • Perspective on WHY people become so triggered in the moment; and,
  • Recognition of how to support yourself & others with REHEARSED responses, instead of letting yourself become oppressive when you're emotionally hijacked down the road.

Whether it's you who struggles with these moments as a trigger or someone you know - we can all use tools to recondition cultural beliefs that aren't realistic or helpful to our personal experience as a human being. It starts with you, so have a journal on hand or a good friend to dialogue with what comes up for you in this episode. And if you can't play with this today? That's okay too. Stay curious. We'll see you later, or in the next episode friend. 🌿
