Welcome to Episode 22 of Triggers and Spiritual Medicine podcast with host, Laura Bonetzky-Joseph. Join us for amazing podcast episode on the topic of “Sexy But Psycho: How the Patriarchy Uses Their Trauma Against Them” with the incredibly powerful, Dr. Jessica Taylor.
Honestly after interviewing Dr. Jess, I've never met someone so akin to my life's work and what my soul came here to accomplish.
For those who do not know Dr. Jess ... I can't highly recommend her and her work enough. This episode is life changing. I rarely endorse anyone for good reasons. So when I do, there's a good reason and I'd stake my reputation on it.
This talk is deep, direct, and powerful while addressing the elephant in the room that affect women impacted by violence and abuse, healing, and justice while offering 3 actionable steps folks can do today.
About Dr Jessica Taylor
Dr. Jess Taylor is a leading expert Forensic psychologist who has worked extensively with PD in SA, DV, CSA and sex trafficking cases in the UK.
She is also the Director of Victim Focus, and has authored multiple international best-selling books including:
She has made appearances on British television, including BBC Two documentary "Womanhood", and in the true crime documentary "My Lover, My Killer".
During the PhD, Jessica explored emerging perspectives and critical approaches to understanding victim blaming. She also studied advanced psychometric theory and created the BOWSVA Scale (a validated psychometric which has the ability to measure victim blaming attitudes of women subjected to sexual violence and abuse).
Jessica had a vision for an independent organization that could challenge, change and influence millions of people to understand that victim blaming, misogyny and pathologization was embedded into every system in the world, and so in April 2017, she launched VictimFocus.
In April 2020, Jessica released ‘Why Women Are Blamed For Everything’ self-publishing in paperback. With no publisher, agent or publicist, the book caused an international conversation and celebrity endorsements resulting in 10,000 copies sold in the first six weeks.
In March 2022, 'Sexy But Psycho' was released and went straight to Sunday Times Best Seller, entering at #5 in the national non-fiction book chart.
ABOUT TRIGGERS & SPIRITUAL MEDICINE PODCAST:
Real talk. Let's address the elephant in the room to the growing "sickness" in our society, address root issues and provide sustainable solutions.
We hope by addressing the intersectionality and connect the dots like a web of many of society’s challenges, we can help others understand the trauma infection that impacts all areas of life – addiction, domestic violence, racism, homelessness, sexual abuse, chronic health issues, cancer, environmental issues, climate change and more.
In this NEW collaborative program, we hope by highlighting these infected areas and what they share in common, a new perspective of solutions, healing, and resolutions can be birthed.
Each episode addresses a certain trigger while offering the spiritual medicine with at least 3 tips or actionable steps our listeners can take and implement.
