CHOOSING TO BE FREE OF SELF-CONDEMNATION
Researchers will tell you that 70% of victims of sex trafficking have been previously sexually exploited. The most likely targets for pimps and pedophiles are foster kids, homeless, run away and pregnant teens and young people who are available and vulnerable on social media. These are kids that often struggle with self-worth and self-condemnation.
Working in this field for over ten years, I have often searched for solutions on how to provide prevention and intervention education for teens and parents so our precious kids do not end up being violated and become easy targets for sex trafficking. Having dealt with hundreds of parents of trafficking and sextortion victims tells me that it is critical that parents work through their own emotional traumas from childhood or marriage experiences so they do not pass their shame, guilt and feelings of condemnation onto their children.
This week’s show is based on the work of Dr. Edith Eger, a world-renowned psychologist dealing with trauma and PTSD and author of the book, “The Choice: Embrace The Possible.”
We will look at the impact of life events on our self-perception and more important how to reframe those life events so we are free of self-condemnation. We will talk about loss and how the blaming and depression ripples out into the family affecting the relationships with loved ones and children. We will provide tools offered by Dr. Eger that can help all of us overcome obstacles and learn to love ourselves and gain power for living a productive and healthy life. This show is an important show for parents of teenagers or anyone dealing with a life-time of shame, guilt and/or oppression.
