Compulsive Sexual Behaviors - Sex / Porn Addiction - Hypersexuality - with Eric

July 8th, 2018

00:0000:00

Our next guest identifies as "Powerful Eric." His name is Eric and after twenty years of going through 12 step programs he no longer identifies as a sex / porn addict.  He feels the label itself was a problem.

While there is no clinical diagnosis for sex addiction, some people stil feel out of control when it comes to their sexual compulsions and seek help. Many people go into twelve step programs, which are known to have high rates of failure. Eric talks to us about his own journey through dozens of twelve step programs, how they didn't help at all, and how he has found mindfullness techniques that help him with his issues.

Therapy for Sexual Trauma and PTSD, Women’s Issues, Guest Megan Garza

January 25th, 2018

00:0000:00

Every time I speak with someone that helps people recover from physical or sexual trauma, I am in awe. I ask them all the same question; How do you do it? How do you hear stories of abuse every day and still find a way to drive home and live a normal life? The answer is always something about self-care, but I have a feeling it’s also something about what kind of person they are. They are the kind of person that dedicates a big part of their life to helping people that need it the most. Something in them is able to hear those stories and still find a way to not break down, to not become disillusioned with humanity, and to not become cynical.

Therapists throw around a term called compassion fatigue. It’s when a therapist hears the same stories over and over again and it does get to them. They are very empathetic people, and when their empathy has been bombarded with trauma after trauma, their brain has one solution to solve this problem: Apathy. They become apathetic, meaning they give zero forks about anyone or any problem that other people may have. It’s not because they don’t care. It’s because they cared too much and have been overwhelmed by their work.

I have to assume that therapists that work with trauma victims have to be at a higher risk for compassion fatigue. Something drives them to this work. I have to assume trauma specialists simply have a lot of love to share and so they decided to find the people that needed it the most.

Our guest this week, Megan Garza, is a trauma specialist that works with the YWCA. Apparently, their organization offers free counseling to those that need it the most. These are some amazing people. I hope you enjoy the episode.
