  • Consent: Its Misuse as a Weapon and a Shield in Therapy Abuse

    19 DIC. 2023 · Consent: Its Misuse as a Weapon and a Shield in Therapy Abuse TRIGGER WARNING: Talk about Therapy Abuse, Sexual assault, and what is consent. Some of this material may be very difficult and we ask that you do what you need to take care of yourself in this hours. RTM discusses consent between adults around therapy abuse where and, in particular, when is a “yes” not a “yes”? It feels like we just got it settled that “no means no”. In this program we ask that you to stretch your cognitive thinking to consider when a yes is not a yes. It may seem too much to ask – but it will make sense by the end of this program why it is important for us to do this. We also discuss BCs new Health Professional and Occupation act regulating our Drs and other health professionals and it’s last revision which seems to provide some protection for victims of therapy abuse but still is questionable along with the problems that can occur with the 2-3 year interval between termination and initiating an intimate relationship with a former client that has been adopted by several association and societies offering professional memberships to therapists.
  • Rape Culture and the Long Road to Healing with Lenny Gagnon

    12 DIC. 2023 · Rape Culture and the Long Road to Healing Trigger Warning: This hour includes descriptions of sexual assault, rape, and victim-blaming. Lenny Gagnon’s whole world turned up-side-down when her father died in a mill accident when she was 6 years old. At 7 she was groomed and then sexually assaulted by the neighborhood pedophile. And she was raped again at 15. When she reported the last one, the cop who interviewed her also assaulted her. At the hearing, she was grilled and shredded about her character (swearing and sexual history [ie rape]) and based on that the judge refused to go ahead with charging her rapist because he didn’t believe she was of chaste character. Second wave feminists had yet to fight to ensure that victims of sexual assault were treated with care and dignity at police stations and in courtrooms. The trauma Lenny experienced caused depression which ultimately led to her being given anti-depressants and then eventually one that caused her to experience mania. Because of the mania, she was put on neuroleptics or anti-psychotics which caused other debilitating side effects. After decades of being on these medications she finally found a psychiatrist who would wean her off these drugs and help her as she transitioned to CBD oil with THC. Today, Lenny is healthy, living her best life with her loving partner Tom. Lenny is a story of survival and victory. Music by Shari Ulrich and Lyndsey Ell

    15 NOV. 2023 · Charlene Hellson/Unpacking the Backpack, Stacy Ashton from Crisis Intervention, and Fraser McKenzie from Coast Mental Health. Bernadine brings you information on several opportunities for education and support. Grandmother, performer, writer, and Indigenous Mental Health Advocate, Charlene Hellson from the Siksika Nation (Blackfoot Confederacy) talks about her one-woman performance “Unpacking the Backpack” which is an educational and experiential monologue that comes from the heart talking about the intergenerational and historical impact of systemic racism on indigenous. Then Stacy Ashton comes to tell us about a new service available in Canada around Suicide Prevention, 988. She outlines how they are working to “ensure a 24/7 access to a crisis continuum that meets people where they are in suicidal crisis, provide culturally-safe socioeconomic and mental health support without over-relying on police and coercive psychiatric interventions, and continues care until the person in crisis in back in control of their lives.” She gave us crisis lines to reach out to in BC Canada: Mental Health Support Line is 30-6789 (no area code required) and 1-800-SUICIDE (784-2433). And then Fraser McKenzie from Coast Mental Health chats with Bernadine about the services that Coast Mental Health can offer folks in Vancouver BC who are coping with mental health challenges, being unhoused, etc. Music by Shari Ulrich, Scott Callum, and Edith Wallace
  • Taking Care of Each Other: The Morin Family Living with Alzheimers (with Peter, Cathleen & Janell Morin)

    7 NOV. 2023 · Peter, Cathleen, and Janell Morin, from the Tahltan nation, join Bernadine to chat about what happens when Alzheimers grabs hold of a family generation after generation, but mostly to describe their loving care of their mother as she makes this journey. So often we hear of older people with Alzheimers unable to care for themselves and/or plagued with a failing memory being left in care homes to wait out their lives. It is a tragic ending to a full life. But with Peter and Cathleen (their sister Nalaine and Dad who couldn’t join us), what is described is an daily act of enveloping their mother in care and loving. Ensuring she is included in family and family is included in her life. It is touching. And sweet. And what we all should be doing. But these siblings have taken it further. Recognizing the legacy of Alzheimer in their family history, they have planned to ensure that they all take care of each other if this is their future too. Music by Robbie Robertson and Shari Ulrich

But Weetigo goes further, he brings into that how autism, ADHD, CPTSD, and being gifted fits into intergenerational trauma and epigenetic memory. Join us – then tell us what you think. Is this aligning with your experiences?
