Loving an addict is one of the hardest things someone can do. This week we hear people's reactions to Antonia's Rolls' exhibition, 'Addicts and Those Who Love Them'. In https://drawntoastory.com/podcast/parent-of-an-addict/ (episode 1) of Drawn to a Deeper Story, Antonia spoke about being the parent of an addict. She invited me to her exhibition in Brighton and I went along to to talk to people as they came out. This type of exhibition creates a visceral space and being part of people's processing experiences felt like an important conversation to have. https://www.drawntoastory.com/podcast/the-art-of-loving-an-addict (See photos of the exhibition).

Even for the most-informed parent, unlearning racism and having tough conversations about race can be confronting. For families formed through transracial adoption, it's essential. This week, I'm talking with Dr Laura Anderson about transracial adoption and particularly, why nurturing a child's racial identity is critical. In this episode, Dr Anderson talks about racism, unconscious bias and why White parents need to feel uncomfortable. She highlights the importance of understanding the intricacies of racial identity and systemic racism and offers ways in which, as a White parent especially, you can nurture your child. Dr. Anderson is a clinical child and family psychologist who has worked with children, adolescents, adults and families for over twenty years. She is licensed in Hawaii and California in the US. She has lived out of the United States on several occasions. Dr. Anderson is currently based primarily in Hawaii. She provides video health services to members of the expatriate community. The areas of her expertise include school-based behavioral health, the assessment of children and adolescents, support for adoptive families, support for gender expansive youth and their families and parenting neurodiverse children and teens. Dr. Anderson has done talks and trainings in the US and internationally on child development, adoption, school-related issues, and issues related to gender identity development. For both personal and professional reasons, Dr. Anderson is passionate about supporting children, teens and families around the globe. Positionality This podcast acknowledges that this conversation is between two White women. It comes from a position of wanting to have an open conversation about parenting a child of colour and to encourage other White people to educate themselves about lived experiences of racism and privilege.

Care 4 Calais states that the world's refugee crisis is the greatest humanitarian issue of our generation and how we respond will define us for years to come. Among the support and work being done to support refugees however, are the voices of descent; those who seek to demonise refugees and their desire for a safe new life. This attitude has always bothered me intensely. I want to set the record straight. We need hard conversations with those who know first-hand about the truth and realities of refugees. So this week I'm talking with Michael Failla. He's been a refugee activist since 1982 and works closely with LGBTQ+ refugees to get them to safety and resettled in a new country. His work is truly inspiring.

You think you've done everything you can to prepare your child for protecting their physical boundaries and consent and then the devastating happens. You learn that your child's boundaries have been broken. The impact of this kind of trauma is incredibly painful, damaging and long-lasting. The ripple effect means that not only the child suffers, but so do parents and siblings. Personal and shared recovery takes time. In the face of such stressful and emotionally confronting events, how does a family cope? In this episode, Stephanie shares the recent story of her family as they've dealt with the trauma of what happened to her daughter. Stephanie raises important questions about consent, physical boundaries, outside influences on teenagers, and the limitations of the law. She also talks about the importance of understanding your child's silence. What are they not telling you? Do they know how to tell you things and are you giving them opportunities to talk to you? Stephanie's frank and heart-felt words offer real insight into the challenges of expat parenting in different cultures - national, state and familial. Our conversation is challenging to listen to, but an important one for anyone raising children and especially globally mobile families.

In the expat and globally mobile community we are familiar with adjusting to new cultures, new countries and new homes. In our processing, we often look to our families, our roots, our ancestors and our childhoods.  What happens though when that avenue is not available to you? How does it feel to not have the same connection to your roots? Where does that leave you emotionally? In this episode, I talk to Liz Harvie about being adopted and the impact of loss and grief as a child, through to adulthood and to having her own family. In our conversation Liz also shares the deeper impact of discovering that her parents were actually forced to give her up for adoption. Liz offers insights into the social attitudes towards adoption, plus the emotional and physical importance of knowing where you come from. She also explains why the UK inquiry into forced adoptions matters so much to so many.

"You never drank THAT much." How often have you heard this yourself or said the same to a friend or family member? Many people consider their level of drinking as 'normal', when in reality it's masking a distressed emotional state. We all develop coping mechanisms to deal with stress and people drink alcohol for a variety of reasons. So when does a self medicating vice become an addiction? As Robyn Flemming shares this week, it's not so much the amount, but the affect it has and what you're seeking through it. It's also about what you're seeking through your drinking - what is the wound your trying to manage? In this episode Robyn talks candidly about her life with addictions, primarily with alcohol, but also other dependencies. She reveals the ever present personal negotiations around her drinking, and the trade offs she made to enable her addictions. For those with no experience of addiction, Robyn will help you to understand the complexities of this path, the internal struggles and what happens when you start to not like your own behaviour. This is a powerful episode that encourages the listener to reflect on the relationship with themselves and explore their own coping mechanisms. Robyn is the author of "Skinful: A Memoir of Addiction" and a freelance book editor. An Australian, she lived in Hong Kong from 1986 to 1993, and was a global nomad from 2010 to 2020. A former "grey area" drinker, she has run five marathons and 48 half marathons all over the world. In 2022, she will resume her global travels. Robyn is a keen smartphone street photographer.

When your child comes out to you as trans, there's a lot that goes through your mind. Parenting is a tough job at the best of times, but add your child’s gender dysphoria and the social and cultural expectations and attitudes on top of that, and parenting changes a gear very quickly. Yes, we need to protect trans kids, but in doing that we also need to support their parents. What are they adjusting to and trying to navigate? This week I’m chatting with Jennifer Killpack about parenting a trans child. Jennifer talks openly about what it's been like for her family and the types of issues they've faced together. In discussing her experiences, she also offers valuable insights that will help other parents support their trans children. And for allies, she gives lots of great ideas about how to be more affirming towards trans people. Jennifer Killpack is a wife and mother of three very unique kids. She is raising her family while running a business in the Middle East and is passionate about social justice issues, travel and helping facilitate safe spaces where people from different cultures can grow in understanding of one another.

False memory isn't a subject you hear much about. If you haven't heard about it, consider yourself lucky. Its impact on the individuals involved and their families can be catastrophic, not to mention the cost to the justice system. Psychiatrist, Paul R McHugh, describes false memory as “a condition in which a person’s identity and interpersonal relationships are centred around a memory of traumatic experience which is objectively false but in which the person strongly believes." (British False Memory Society website)In this episode, Kevin Felstead shares the complexities of working with false memory cases within the UK legal system. He clarifies the difference between false memory allegations and real cases of sexual abuse.

The hetero-normative view of family is what we mostly see represented publicly and in the media. We might hear about LGBTQ+ families, but commonly we're shown a couple or a single parent. What about polyamorous families? Can you remember the last time you saw these types of relationships on TV or in the newspaper? In this episode, Adrienne Sweetwater talks about her life in a poly triad. She shares how a queer identity intersects with having a global mindset and being a adult third culture kid. Adrienne offers insights into the difference between one's different emotional and physical needs, plus the complexity and importance of legal protection for poly families living globally mobile lives. And if you're not in a poly relationship and don't quite know what to say when you find out someone is, she gives us all a great way to answer!

The extent to which patriarchal history still shapes women's lives today is extraordinary. In this episode, we explore just quite how much - from medical treatment, women's experiences in employment, and the social expectations placed upon them. Chrissy Ward offers a fascinating insight into how this history plays out every day in women's lives. Chrissy Ward describes herself as a woman, a witch and a fellow human. It’s time to embrace our inner goddesses! Its been a rocky road … not the chocolate type! I’m a survivor and want to help my fellow goddesses on their pathways.

Today's episode is the last in this first series. We've looked at eight different lives, all challenging in their own way, to the individuals themselves, but also to the people that they encounter. And now you've heard some of these stories, I wanted to conclude the series with giving you something practical, a 'how to'. How do we deal with these unexpected moments? How do we be present with someone when they tell us something that we don't know what to do with? I've brought back Mandy Preece, author and creator of Being Rock, the award-winning communications training. Being Rock is a superb method of listening which gives us the tools to manage the moment when we don't know how to react to what we've just heard. This is a powerful end to this first series as Mandy shares very real and practical techniques that will enable you to be present with people in ways that you never imagined.

What kind of life must you have lived, when friends ask mutual friends if everything you say about your life is actually true? I invited my wife, Angie to the podcast, not because Ang is my wife, but because having lived with Ang for 14 years, I see the other side of having lived that interesting life which makes people ask such questions. The lives that challenge us are also the lives that aren't seen because people don't quite believe your truth. Ang grew up with an absent father and a mother with manic depression. Add neurodiversity and being gay in there too and you start to appreciate the challenges, the grace, the opportunities, the wisdom that Ang holds. Angie talks candidly about her childhood, how it's impacted their adult life and important relationships, plus offers us an opportunity to reflect on our own hardships to see if we can see them through new eyes. In this Episode: Navigating disability and mental illness The importance of your 'safe people' in life The power of objects for triggering memory When your wounds help others towards emotional freedom Reframing a childhood with adult eyes Trigger Warning: The podcast includes mention of a golly doll. The doll was given to Ang by her father in recognition of her African childhood, which is very dear to her heart. We acknowledge that the use of the word also represents outdated cultural depictions and advise listener discretion.

The number of menopausal women is expected to reach https://www.forbes.com/sites/debgordon/2021/07/13/73-of-women-dont-treat-their-menopause-symptoms-new-survey-shows/ (1.1 billion by 2025). Whilst virtually every woman will go through menopause, it remains a hushed subject, a taboo, that in many countries sees women suffering in silence. Out of the 48 symptoms named in the https://gen-m.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/09/106847-Gen-M-Invisibility-Report-082.pdf (Invisibility Report) 51% of women can only name 3. Woman often start to feel the symptoms in their 40s, when at the peak of their careers. In the UK, one in four women will experience severe debilitating symptoms from menopause. In the USA, 73% of women don't treat their symptoms. This week, I speak with Mandy Preece who shares her experiences of living with menopause for the past 7 years. It's an insightful conversation as Mandy talks about the ups and downs....yes there are some ups! :) Mandy is proof that you can live the s**t and start to come out the other side still smiling.

We all appreciate that being poor and struggling to make ends meet is difficult, but what about being wealthy? Is it really as desirable as we might think? Does it solve our problems and make us happy? I invited Alice for an honest conversation about what it's like to grow up in a wealthy family and to live with wealth. It's certainly not a very woke subject, but it has a place in this series of conversations. Challenges go both ways and life is life whomever you are. Alice adds a thoughtful commentary on the nuances of living with wealth; its freedoms and complexities.

Women are commonly asked, "do you have children?" It's a loaded fact-checking question and the woman's answer hovers as a tenuous balancing point from which they know there are two choices, being met with approval or judged. In this episode, Sarah talks honestly about the prejudice she faces in being a woman without children. She shares personal stories about her experiences, when and why she's felt most judged, as well as explaining why she's the person you especially want in your life. Listen in to this episode to understand why society needs to do better. WE need to do better. Sarah's experiences shine a light on how a woman's purpose is viewed, why that can be so damaging, and how everyone can see women as much more than just 'baby machines'.

What happens when you find yourself before someone who challenges you because their experiences are outside society's accepted norm of good behaviour? Do you judge? Do you make a note to keep your distance? Do you politely remove yourself from the conversation because they are not like you? I invited Harvey to Drawn to a Deeper Story to talk about being in prison. It felt pertinent to understand what it is like and to explore if there is space to practice compassion for prisoners/ex-prisoners. I knew it would be a good conversation, but what I didn't expect was an incredibly rich and insightful discussion also about the impact of living with ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder). Harvey talks personally and candidly about living with undiagnosed ADHD, how it's shaped his life including ending up in prison. He also eloquently explains why people with ADHD can struggle with work, personal relationships and mental health. If you're interested in something with my condition, you can function at a very high level, but the flip side is if it bores you, you cannot function at all. - HarveyListening to Harvey will take you to a place that most of us will never have been. He's insightful, erudite, and invites us all to look at 'othering' with new eyes.

Hailey Slade is a yoga-loving, hippy tattoo artist with Aspergers. With poignancy and humour she shares what it's like to be on the autism spectrum. Living with autism is challenging; especially in a world that is made for people who think and process differently. It can be incredibly beautiful, but too often, people on the autism spectrum spend years trying to work out why they experience the world as they do. "I've never really wanted anyone to think of me as moody or grumpy or not friendly or approachable.

"Behind every addict is someone traumatized by loving them". If you've never experienced addiction, these words tend to hang in the air. Poised. Heavy. Looking for somewhere to land. They took my breath away. Such is the power of talking with this week's guest, Antonia Rolls. Antonia Rolls is an artist and uses painting and words to explore difficult subjects such as end of life, and addictions. There is addiction in her family and over the last ten years she has seen how destructive, chaotic and hopeless life with and around addiction can be. She's just completed the first stage of a project of paintings and words called 'Addicts And Those Who Love Them'. Behind every addict is someone traumatized by loving them. It is not so simple to just walk away when your addict is your child, your parent, your sibling, your spouse. Love complicates it all, and we are traumatized, and yet we do still love. We have to learn that this love has to start with ourselves, which gives us the courage to create boundaries in order to survive, to detach and keep our sanity. - Antonia Rolls. Join me for an insightful conversation with this remarkable woman. In this Episode: How to love an addict whilst loving yourself Learn about the power of listening to those in trauma Transcending emotional scars to help others How to act from your heart and truly see people in moments of communal judgement Follow Cath at Drawn to a Story https://my.captivate.fm/www.instagram.com/drawntoastory (Instagram) https://my.captivate.fm/www.facebook.com/drawntoastory.com (Facebook) https://www.drawntoastory.com (Website) https://mailchi.mp/b72fbbc91850/subscribe (Subscribe) to the mailing list Contact Antonia https://antoniarolls.co.uk/ (antoniarolls.co.uk) - follow Antonia's work https://mailchi.mp/antoniarolls/newsletter (Subscribe) to Antonia's newsletter https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCPwvjunRhjo_wtfk8z2xKMA (Youtube) Be part of the exhibition - Antonia is looking for more stories to include in her May 2022 exhibition.
