February 23, 2021

Last week we talked about gaslighting and how we can do this to others without even realizing it. Especially our loved ones! Paige Bendt takes a different angle on gaslighting - what we do to ourselves. Very common with anyone who's survived trauma.

Here's the link to Paige's paper: https://bit.ly/2_18_2021

February 16, 2021

It started with a movie and now it's an integral part of our culture. It's bad for mental health and it's part and parcel of being a trauma survivor. In part one, I review the basics and include some stories to bring it to life. In part two, we'll hear from an amazing woman who has studied "self-gaslighting" which is something victims do all the time.

Kris is a survivor of Joe DeAngelo and is working to give voice to victims of sexual assault. Her private group on Facebook is a wonderful place to share, find support or just hang out. I love this woman! Here's her video.

I start the pod talking about Kris Pedretti's group and how it's growing. Then a closer look at the Missing Cases of JJD and the progress we're making there. Finally, a quick discussion of a California proposition expanding DNA. They make the mistake of associating it with DeAngelo. Nope, that's not how it worked.
