Are our first responders heroes in your view, or are they villains? It seems like these two camps are often feuding back and forth on mainstream and social medias. In this episode of Therapists’ Take, we hope to offer up a different perspective. We aim to take a look at our first responders in such a way that reminds us that they are human. They are flesh and blood like you and me. And not unlike many groups or professions, they are faced with a unique set of mental, emotional, and relational challenges, which happens to be part of the sacrifice each and every one of them make for their communities. In no way are we making excuses for bad policing or even suggesting bad policing doesn’t exist, but our hope is put compassion back into the equation as we take a deeper dive at the human being behind the badge. In this episode of Therapists’ Take, we are excited to have a couple very special guests join us. Derek Thomason is a licensed professional counselor who serves as a mental health therapist for the Oklahoma City Police Department Wellness Unit. Additionally, our colleague and business partner, Rebel Buersmeyer returns to Therapists’ Take. She is a licensed marital and family therapist with training and experience working with families of fallen first responders. Our guests are in the mental, emotional, and relational trenches with first responders on a regular basis. We are honored to have them join us. _______________ 00:00 - Hi, Carrie (banter) 02:56 - Guest Introductions 07:00 - About Rebel Buersmeyer, LMFT 08:35 - About Derek Thomason, LPC 10:26 - Episode Breakdown 12:10 - Unique Mental Health Challenges 20:14 - Rebel Explains the Vagel Nerve 25:33 - Unique Relational Challenges 31:24 - Partners of First Responders 42:08 - Remembering Their Humanity 52:00 - Books & Other Resources ______________ Please be sure to check out the resources below: Books - The Body Keeps the Score - https://amzn.to/44tr4h0 - Emotional Survival for Law Enforcement - https://amzn.to/3WrtVVz - I Love a Cop - https://amzn.to/4dme1C3 - A CHiP on My Shoulder - https://amzn.to/4boxK22 - A Marriage in Progress - https://amzn.to/3Wsttqm Resources - The Warriors Rest Foundation - https://www.warriorsrestfoundation.org - C.O.P.S. - https://www.concernsofpolicesurvivors.org - How to Love Our Cops - https://www.how2loveourcops.org/ - EMDR Therapist Directory - https://www.emdria.org/find-an-emdr-therapist/ Videos - EMDR w/ Rebel Buersmeyer - https://youtu.be/G692ymBkg-4?si=Z_fcfKFCLqQSuBGp - EMDR w/ Derek Thomason - https://youtu.be/_7oBFC11Do0?si=blFTgFEgQCgvR_I7 ______________ Please follow us on all our social medias and check out our podcasts by clicking our LinkTree - https://linktr.ee/familysolutionsok ______________ About the Hosts Carrie and Josh are both licensed marital and family therapists (LMFT) that specialize in betrayal trauma recovery.

Second chances may seem easy for some and hard for others. Most of us can probably relate to leaning one direction or the other when we find ourselves in a situation where a second chance may or may not be warranted. But, how do we know we are doing it right? Most of us likely can feel the tug-a-war going on inside where on one side your desire is to give them one more chance, but on the other side is screaming "no way!" as it pulls on the rope. In this episode we will be discussing these types of concerns related to giving second chances (and more).

“You know what you should do?” “Stop! That’s now how you’re supposed to do it!” “Okay, here’s what you should do…” Can you hear yourself saying those words? Can you picture that person in your life or in your past constantly telling you what you should and shouldn’t do? Does it make you cringe a little? Most of us can relate to moment or two where you proceeded to tell someone what they should or shouldn’t do, and/or preached about how things are “supposed” to be. These words don’t necessarily reflect some sort of absolute truth, but they do reflect the governing rules of our lives and relationships. But what happens when the rule system collapses? What “should” we do then? In this episode of Therapists’ Take, Carrie and Josh will address just that and more.

Many people often describe themselves as “conflict avoidant.” Some who ascribe to this label see it as a problem or hurdle they have to overcome, while others are seemingly okay with this being a character trait they possess. But, never have we heard someone talk about this phenomenon as something to be desired. That said, is it possible that we intuitively know that being conflict avoidant at minimum isn’t helpful for our relationships, and at most, hurtful? If so, does this mean that we intuitively understand that conflict not only can be good for relationships, but also necessary for the growth and development of the relationship? In this episode, Carrie and Josh discuss these types of nuances to this common couple phenomenon we often refer to as “conflict.” __________ 00:00 - Hi Carrie! 01:55 - Overview 11:14 - Difference in Good and Bad Conflict' 18:20 - Good Pain vs. Bad Pain 25:35 - Not About Winning or Losing. 31:30 - Conflict as a Doorway to Intimacy __________ Books & Other Helpful Resources Speaker-Listener Technique - https://marriagemissions.com/speaker-listener-technique/ Fighting for Your Marriage Book - https://amzn.to/3v2IPq3 The Seven Principles for Making a Marriage work - https://amzn.to/3IuBMtm ______________ Therapy Resources: Therapist Directory: https://www.psychologytoday.com Betrayal Trauma Therapist Directory: https://iitap.com/search/custom.asp?id=5357 The Gottman Institute (Relationship Research) - https://www.gottman.com/ ________________ About the Hosts Carrie and Josh are both licensed marital and family therapists (LMFT) that specialize in betrayal trauma recovery.

I think most of us would agree that having milestones in our lives is a good thing. Milestones serve as markers to help us measure forward movement and progress; thus, in a sense, milestones help make our life goals and aspirations feel more achievable. So why would we ever fear or "dread" milestones? Why would anyone fear a marker of progress?

Most of us know, either through direct experience or vicarious experience of someone close to us, that infidelity is a painful discovery or revelation. But, why does the pain linger?

Have you ever been concerned about your therapist’s qualifications? Have you ever been alarmed by their youthful appearance (i.e., lack of life experience) or credentials, or the lack thereof? Well, if you have, you are not alone. It is actually quite common. Even a seasoned therapist’s youthful appearance may be thrown in to question from time to time. One reason we vet our therapists seemingly more often (but not always) than other medical professional is because there is something about our mental, emotional, and relational well-being that adds an extra dose of vulnerability. Thus, an inexperienced therapist can be alarming when searching for a therapist. In this episode of Therapists’ Take, we are going to tackle the unique phenomenon of working with a “newbie” therapist. We welcome to the conversation guest therapist and professor, Dr. Kelly Roberts, who serves as the clinical director of the marriage and family therapy program at Oklahoma Christian University. This means she is responsible for training bright new minds of our therapeutic future. Join us as we discuss that new therapists can be a delightful surprise as they are often more than meets the eye. ____________ 00:00 - Introduction 05:20 - Reflecting Back to Our "Newbie" Days 15:09 - When Does a Newbie Stop Being a Newbie? 21:08 - Less Is More Sometimes. 30:05 - New vs Seasoned 40:28 -A Newbie Story ______________ More about Dr. Kelly Roberts Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/reddirtkelly LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/kelly-m-roberts-phd-lmft-129a8713 Professor Profile - https://www.oc.edu/directory/kelly-roberts AAMFT Profile - https://www.aamft.org/Supervision/Search/Profiles/viewprofile.aspx?ID=94634 KOCO Interview - https://www.koco.com/article/oklahoma-christian-university-affordable-therapy/43440543 Recipient of the 2022 AAMFT Excellence in Media Award - https://youtu.be/1zoNf5LJ5f8?si=W4FVIljf534aI2Pd __________________ The OC MFT Program and Clinic: The Family Therapy Clinic - https://www.oc.edu/family-therapy-clinic The Training Program - https://www.oc.edu/academics/college-of-sciences-education/human-sciences/marriage-and-family-therapy-m-s-h-s The Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/ocmft _____________________ Other Resources: Family Solutions Counseling -https://www.familysolutionsok.com Therapist Directory: https://www.psychologytoday.com Betrayal Trauma Therapist Directory: https://iitap.com/search/custom.asp?id=5357 The Gottman Institute (Relationship Research) - https://www.gottman.com/ Domestic Violence Hotline: https://www.thehotline.org/ ______________________ Equipment Used & Other Amazon Links: Mic Stands - https://amzn.to/46o4So6 Rode Pod Mic - https://amzn.to/3Rsw5Sz Pyle Mixer Board - https://amzn.to/3ZsJU5g iRig Pre 2 - https://amzn.to/3ZpCPm9 As Amazon Associates, we earn from qualifying purchases. #TherapistsTakePodcast #MentalHealthPodcast #Newbies
Words are powerful! As our stories unfold and we find ourselves in a chapter of pain and suffering, it's not uncommon that words were utilized as the weapon of choice whether you were on the receiving end, or you were the one wielding the sword... or maybe both. But all hope is not lost. Yes, words can cut us to the core, but words can be extremely healing as well. The right combination of words along with an infectious rhythm and the proper inflection…… when done well, words can sneak by our barriers and defenses and reach right into our souls to offer us some semblance of peace and healing. We are happy to have spoken word artist and licensed therapist, Carl Patterson on Therapists’ Take to talk about the Power of the Spoken the Word. Carl is not only a phenomenal therapist, but he is also a talented spoken word artist. We hope you enjoy this LIVE broadcast of Therapists’ Take.

Therapists’ Take on Authenticity as the 2023 Word of the Year. Merriam-Webster has named “Authentic” as 2023’s Word of the Year. You may or may not recall that “Gaslighting” as the word of the year for 2022. It is fitting that a word laced with truth and empowerment (I.e., authentic) has now dethroned a word born out of lies and deception (I.e., gaslighting). In this episode, Carrie and Josh are going to discuss the concept of authenticity and how it might be the perfect antidote for disarming gaslighters.
