Ep 89: #DefundthePolice
Money and Nikeeta sound like they're in a wind tunnel, but thats just them fanning the flames of liberation and healing! Money created an acronym to help us heal from triggers - STRAW. Nikeeta uses Syracuse as a case study for why the police need to be defunded and our youth need to be funded! We highlight queer rock climber Abby Dione as QueerWOC of the week and talk small joys while avoiding the 'Vid-19.

Healing triggers: Dr. Money’s STRAW method
Triggers are not the same as things that cause negative emotional responses
NER - This makes me feel emotions I dont want to feel
Trigger - This makes me feel overwhelming emotions i dont have the capacity to handle
NER - I feel bad, but I can think of something that will make me feel better
Trigger - I feel bad and Ive lost all sense of what I need
NER - I feel bad and I know what caused it
Trigger - Idk what I feel and Im so thrown off I dont know what caused this
See what they are! - [Listen to ep 22] whip out ur journal and write down things that elicit overwhelming emotional responses
Track the origin - Triggers collapse space and time. Where did this one originate? Can u think of the earliest traumatic experience you had related to that thing?
Reprogram/undo - If-then thinking, how did this trigger generalize? Tell yourself truths about the negative thoughts. Can you think of things u can use to manage this trigger?
Act as If - do with support! If this wasnt a trigger, I would….
Work with Therapist/Allied Professional - you need someone sensitive to trauma processes to help ground you so that you are not retraumatized.
