Default Interesting TED Talks

Iíve become quite the TED addict since someone posted the video of Brene Brownís Anatomy of Trust utube video.

There is another thread for interesting psychotherapy articles. I wondered if a place to share TED Talk videos would be welcomed.

I listened to this one a couple of days ago, for the first time, and have replayed it several times.

I wanted to share it somewhere.

There are several things here that are my story. I never understood the power in telling my story and the healing that happens in the process.

Edited.

I took the video off. I didnít want it to hurt someone who wasnít in a place to see or hear it.

It was ďThe Secret That Almost Killed MeĒ by Kirsten Johnson.

Itís really good, if you are in the right place to hear it.

Please add videos that you would like to share.

I think there is great information here.

I listen to the TED Radio Hour podcast in the car often, which features different TED speakers. One TED talk that really resonated with me was Debra Jarvis, a cancer survivor. What she had to say about difficult experiences and identity was useful to me. I think this is the speaker who used the analogy of crossing a rope bridge that I find so resonant.

I did watch it and found it triggering but had aspects of my story, too.

I'm not sure you want to hear this, in which case I'm sorry if it not's something that you want to read, either. But what came up for me is a different kind of trauma, a different kind of white elephant -- and how angry I am at how led down the garden path of delusion that I have been by therapy and therapists over many years.

Yes, I was vulnerable to that because of how numbed out I had learned to be in the family of origin -- identifying, following, and meeting expectations because Ė that was the way to be.

Thatís what ďtherapyĒ was supposed to find and help with, right? Theoretically. And I lived by theory and expectations, aspects of life that my cognition could take control of. So much of what Kirsten Johnson had to say about how trauma victims stay silent Ė thatís true of trauma and mistreatment in therapy as well, in my experience.

Itís taken practically my whole life to find this out Ė and there is no recognition anywhere in the society of a need for any help, "professional" or otherwise, for me or people like me who have been mistreated in therapy and very confused by it. No recognition that we exist. No recognition that there is any trauma, or mistreatment -- just more stuff that's "my fault".

But for me to speak out. Yes, that does help a little. Pretty late for me, but itís not over till itís over.

Thank you for sharing that. It was a great talk, I so hope to be in that place where I can freely talk and begin to recover one day!

A Ted Talk that really motivated me to think about reaching out for help was ĎHow childhood trauma affects health across a lifetimeí

Thank you for the thread! I enjoy it often. It was my inspiration for this one.

Iím not familiar with stickys, and I agree with you that it could be a resource as the interesting psychotherapy thread is.

I would trust the mods opinion if they would like to make it that. Interesting TED Talks

Thank you for your honesty!

Iím so sorry that you have experienced this. Professionals should help and not harm and my heart is truly sad for the hurt that you have encountered.

May I say that I agree with you! ďItís not over till itís overĒ and Iím thinking that itís not over until you stop speaking out.
