[Ep. 2] Fawning: The Most Overlooked Trauma Response | Luis Mojica
Play • 1 hr 1 min

This episode is about Fawning - what I call "The Fourth F" after fight, flight & freeze in response to threat, yet often the first one we use. Fawning is mistaken for "politeness" and "having manners", but it's actually a learned threat response. We fawn so that we can dissolve the physical discomfort held in our own bodies when we disappoint someone with our truth. This episode explains why we do it, what happens, and how to begin healing this body mechanism.
