The Therapy for Black Girls Podcast is a weekly conversation with Dr. Joy Harden Bradford, a licensed Psychologist in Atlanta, Georgia, about all things mental health, personal development, and all the small decisions we can make to become the best possible versions of ourselves. While many of us may be familiar with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), you might be less familiar with Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (C-PTSD). To help us understand the differences between the two and to provide some context for C-PTSD, today I’m joined by Licensed Psychologist Dr. Janelle Peifer. Dr. Peifer and I discussed some of the causes of CPTSD, how it impacts interpersonal relationships, how we often overlook experiences as traumatic, an example of what this might look like based on the Duke of Hastings from Bridgerton, and she shares some of her favorite resources for you to dig in a little further.

Like many of you I’ve been spending a considerable amount of time watching all of the shows and thought it would be fun to have a little recap of what’s been happening on a couple of my favorites and dig into some of the themes that have popped up. Joining me today to chat about the most recent episodes of This Is Us and Married at First Sight is Beverley Andre, LMFT. Related to This Is Us, Beverley and I chatted about the power of the stories we hold onto in our lives, the impact of grief as shown in the episode, the symbolism of water, and the importance of having nonjudgmental safe spaces like the ones that often exist with our aunties. We also chatted about the newest season of Married at First Sight. We discussed some of our thoughts about the compatibility and readiness of some of the couples, what you might want to think about before choosing to apply for this type of show, our thoughts about what indicates success for the couples, and of course some of the red flags that already seem to be popping up this season.

It's Inauguration Day here in the US and I'm feeling a mix of excitement that the current administration is finally ending and also anxiety about the safety of the day's events. The grief related to the many lives we've lost over the past year also seems to be heavier and heavier each day. If you're feeling similarly, you're not alone. When times are difficult, it's even more important for us to dig deep into taking care of ourselves. In today's episode I'm sharing 8 tips that might help today and in the days ahead and also answering a couple of On the Porch questions.

One of the qualities I most appreciate about people who regularly practice mindfulness is the ability to cultivate inner calm despite what is happening on the outside and I think this is definitely something many of us can use more of right now. To help us learn more about mindfulness practices, today we are joined by Wellness educator, Meditation teacher, Reiki Healer, and Author Devi Brown. Devi also serves as the Chief Impact Officer for Chopra Global and is the voice of daily inspiration on the Chopra App. Devi and I chatted about the wellness practices she incorporates into her life, how to get started with using crystals and primordial sound meditation, the importance of affirmations and she shared a beautiful guided affirmation that can be experienced over and over to help keep you grounded.

As the days get shorter and the wind gets colder, you might be moving a little slower and feeling a little less motivated. And given the multiple stressors we’ve experienced this year, that’s not at all a surprise. Today we’re joined by Dr. Allycin Powell-Hicks to talk about seasonal affective disorder and how that might be heightening depressive symptoms you might have experienced in the past. Dr. Ally and I discussed tips for managing depressive symptoms, how we can tell if symptoms are something we should be concerned about, how to support ourselves in this very different holiday season, and some of the relationship challenges that have arisen during the pandemic and how to manage them.

If you’re anything like me, you’ve probably been spending much of your time watching or re-watching some of your favorite shows from the past like Girlfriends, Living Single, or One on One. But did you know that there’s a very good reason why so many of us are turning to old favorites right now to help soothe ourselves? Joining us again this week to dig into why, is Dr. Alicia Little Hodge. She and I chatted about how nostalgia works to calm anxiety, how anxiety looks different since the pandemic, and she offers her perspective on managing our anxiety around the election season.

idk still feels like the denegration of black women. idk why people think this representation of black women is new. people have always thought of us this way, as the Jezebel character. WAP just feeds into that stereotype. why can't we have songs about black mothers, engineers, and scientists. why are we, as the beginning of the song says, characterized as whores.

TY TY In the past, this was a prevalent part of my life. 🚨Being in constant crisis. **I'm glad you mentioned that it isn't a personal failure.** These are very useful tips of how someone can effectively hold space for another person while they are in crisis. I actually had to develop a Wellness Recovery Action Plan(WRAP) because I didn't have consistent resources to assist me during those times. It was useful as you advised to have a coping tools kit. I call it my GO BAG. It had to be ready for any moment of crisis. You listed so so many helpful things that I used & they were very effective. Namaste 🐬Peace 💃Shalom 🐒

TY TY This was an informative packed episode with a wealth of symptoms of sexual abuse as well as helpful resources & how to handle said situations. Many praise men for being hypersexual & not realizing that their hypersexuality or homosexuality or bisexuality or even asexuality could be symptomatic of prior sexual abuse. Many females get demeaned for being hypersexual or even multiple pregnancies when they may have been groomed & being sexually abused. I liked how both genders were recognized as potential targets & grooming & that victims can potentially become perpetrators. I agree majority of sexual abuse survivors were groomed & know their perpetrator(s) What also often get overlooked is that rape can also occur... when service members are deployed to war or within marriage to either gender. I'm just overjoyed for so much awareness & education & resources available for prevention as well healing after these travesties occurs. Sometimes, it is helpful to incorporate medication with therapy or even holistic healing approaches. Namaste 🐬 Peace 💃Shalom 🐒

In regards to the Tiffany's issue with postpartum depression, you mentioned that the friends were around right after the baby was born, but faded in the background not long after. I noticed that we as people are present for the joyous occasions (birthday) and the somber occasions (death), but we have a tendency to miss the heart of friendship that takes place between these two extremes.

Say that again. relationships requires much work. Getting married & having kids are not in my bucket list. Though I felt much pressure from family that I can't develop myself unless I have a child. A partner must be in alignment w/ my purpose & freedom & self development. My single & married life is very abundant. I have much flexibility to mentor more & to keep evolving & changing my jobs/business. I totally believe that I rather be single than to settle for a toxic masculine relationship. I firmly believe that getting into a relationship is a intentional choice not an obligation. It took much reprogramming. Now, as a single person it is now possible to foster & adopt kids. I had to limit my contact w/ family b/c I didn't enjoy all the pressure focusing on being partnered & many times people bring religion in the mix & I firmly express that there were many many single people & single parents & widowers in religious literature, actually all types of people & relationships are shown as examples. I'm all about self love & becoming emotionally intelligent. My life purpose is first & foremost. Make a single woman action plan this is similar to the mental health WRAP wellness recovery action plan or like an emergency plan. This was very insightful for someone to actually speak about what single people actually encounter.
