For parents with teens, tweens or kids that will be at some point, this episode is another great one to listen to. Ameé speaks with a favorite repeat guest, Jax Anderson - a Wisconsin-based family therapist that specializes in teenagers. In this episode, Ameé and Jax talk about the neuroscience of adolescent brain development so that parents (and ever ourselves) can gain a greater understanding of the real biological and neurological changes happening in a tween and teenagers life. Our parents and their parents don't know what science knows now and that is a very long period of brain architecture and development happens between the ages of 12 until 25 years old! This is completely different than what many had thought about the way the brain forms and also gives us a better understanding of why teenagers act the way they do and what we REALLY need to do to parent them the right way through this period.

Back on One Broken Mom is Michelle Piper. Michelle is a Marriage and Family Therapist based out of San Diego. She has both a personal and professional interest in the adult children of narcissistic mothers. And has a website www.narcissisticmother.com where she provides valuable resources for survivors of narcissistic abuse. We’ve talked about the Narcissistic Mother as a type of Broken Mom and then drilled down into the different family roles the children end up being forced into, starting the Golden/Hero, then the Lost Child, The Mascot and now we’re at the last one – the Scapegoat.Which I think fits nicely because I feel the personality of this child is little like “Screw you everyone, I’m outta here!” and so it feels like a suitable conclusion in many ways! Scapegoated Child"Nothing you did was ever good enough. What may have satisfied your narcissistic mother one day could disappoint her the next.If you expressed you felt your mother treated you unfairly, she might have led you to believe that you were crazy and ungrateful.  The “love” and “thoughtfulness” she gave you through her constant criticism was to be treasured.If you did something of value and worth, you may have been cut down and made to believe that your accomplishments had no meaning in your narcissistic mother’s eyes.   Or, you could have been elevated and bragged about to the point of objectification.  (See Chosen, Hero or Golden child below.)Why do we talk about this in detail? Because we are wired to idealize our parents and in particular our “MomNot only does a narcissistic mother neglect to nurture her child as a healthy mother would, but sadly her abuse turns you against yourself — often without you even realizing it initially.To recover from narcissistic abuse, you need to be aware of what has happened to you and what is likely to happen to you as a result of having a narcissistic mother."Topics Covered in This EpisodeBecoming addicted to negative intensityThe different types of Scapegoats in a family The emotional & intellectual abuse that resultsKnowing the difference between self-esteem and self-blameThe vulnerabilities Scapegoats develop as a result of their survival mechanismsThe strengths of the Scapegoat How to manage the best way to approach confrontation when you have become addicted to intensityUnderstanding the role of anger and anxietyUPDATE: Since this episode was released, Michelle has since retired from the field of therapy and coaching. Therefore all links to her site have been removed.
For her 75th episode of One Broken Mom, Ameé brings back a listener favorite, Wendy Behary. Wendy is the founder and Director of The Cognitive Therapy Center of New Jersey and The Schema Therapy Institutes of NJ-NYC and DC. She has been training professionals and supervising psychotherapists for more than twenty years.She is the author of Disarming the Narcissist: Surviving and Thriving with the Self-Absorbed and is on the show to talk about the very real but often not understood hypersexualized nature of many male narcissists. From excessive porn watching to hiring prostitutes to having multiple affairs, the hallmark is the overarching sense of entitlement these types of narcissists feel. Unfortunately, their behaviors are demeaning and without the consent or knowledge of their partners, leaving deeply traumatic and painful wounds on the relationship as well as the partner. In this episode you will hear: So what is abuse?Hypersexualization – how does this fit into the picture of a relationship with a narcissist? Are all narcissists this way? Is this the same as having a sex addiction? What is betrayal trauma? How do these betrayals activate the Attachment System and what does that do to victims?What are possible long-term impacts sometimes for a victim who’s been in a relationship like this? How does a person heals from this type of trauma?Resources:Wendy's Website Wendy on Facebook
Many of you are here to listen to One Broken Mom because you identify with the fact that you may have a complicated childhood and family of origin history. And what you are presently addressing in your life can be just your own healing and self-development or it can be in combination with parenting you own children if you have them. Some of us in life, despite the challenges or adversities we’ve experienced, are able to maintain some degree of connection with our family and some of us, elect to limit contact. Now, unfortunately, there are some of you out there who actually feel trapped by your family in some way. I’ve heard from some listeners who say that they have parents that have control of their finances and they are unable to leave because they don’t have the money. Others feel trapped by the shame and guilt from feeling responsible for the care of their parent’s needs or perhaps the needs of siblings who are less fortunate. So on this episode, Ameé is speaking with Dr. Elizabeth Cohen. Dr. Cohen received her Ph.D. in clinical psychology from Boston University and is considered one of New York City’s experts in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy through her private practice. Dr. Cohen was the recipient of the prestigious American Psychological Foundation Research Award for her doctoral research. Following her time at BU, Dr. Cohen completed her pre-doctoral internship at Bellevue Hospital Center and the New York University Child Study Center.  After completing her training, she was asked to become the Director of the CBT program at Bellevue’s Outpatient Psychiatry Clinic.Dr. Cohen has been featured in the Wall Street Journal, NBC News, Women’s Health, Huff Post, Thrive Global and, Good Housekeeping. And she also has a podcast called Off the Couch. In this episode, you will hear:Are people every really trapped or captive or is it really a belief they are What kinds of families and family members are the ones we should consider cutting off, either emotionally or even physically What happens when we marry or meet someone with a toxic family  and we think our partner should separate from them How to talk with our children about cutting off family membersIs repair possible with family members we’ve cut off What do you recommend for people who are perhaps being financially abused or manipulated What are some tools or strategies for clean breaks from toxic family members What should someone expect the reactions to be when they cut someone off  Resources Mentioned in this episode:https://drelizabethcohen.com/Alice Miller’s “The Body Never Lies” on Amazon 
In the wake of recent mass shootings, Ameé had an opportunity to speak with Nick Hoffman, the Director of Development with the Avielle Foundation. The Mission of the Avielle Foundation is to prevent violence and build compassion through neuroscience research, community engagement, and education. And it was founded after the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in 2012 by two parents who lost their only child that day. The Avielle Foundation accomplishes this mission by directing efforts and resources in two areas. First, the Avielle Foundation provides financial support of breakthrough neuroscience research, bridging biochemical and behavioral sciences, and making the neurosciences a prestigious and lucrative life endeavor. And second, knowing that action is as important as education, the Avielle Foundation fosters community engagement and education initiatives that empower youth, parents, teachers, health care providers, law enforcement – the everyday citizen – to advocate for brain health in themselves and others.In this episode, Ameé speaks with Nick about some of the important studies the Avielle Foundation has supported and touch on the results of those studies that provide the evidence needed to understand why some people become violent and others don't. In this episode you will hear:The history and mission of the Avielle FoundationResearch projects supported that study the origins of violenceWhat kinds of projects funded by the Avielle FoundationHow to support the Avielle Foundation and how to apply for grantsResources:Donate to Support The Avielle Foundation How to Apply for Funding The Brainstorm Experience
This week's episode features Dr. Jonice Webb.  She is the author of the best-selling book Running on Empty: Overcome your Childhood Emotional Neglect. And has just published a follow-up to the book Running on Empty No More: Transform Your Relationships With Your Partner, Your Parents and Your Children.Because like many people out there – when you use words like trauma and neglect – they feel too strong to describe what was, yes, a challenging childhood, and so it is easy to reject looking into any subject matter around the topic, especially if you are a person who feels that you have overcome adversities and challenges. But if you are a person who is still committing acts of self-sabotage such as bad romantic relationships, or have feelings of anxiety or depression frequently, and you have never been able to put a finger on any particular event or experience in your life that may have contributed to them, the concept of childhood emotional neglect just might be the key to unlocking the mystery. In this episode, Ameé and Dr. Webb discuss the following: What is Childhood Emotional Neglect? The common types of parents who are more apt to create this emotionally phobic or neglectful environment.  Now, how does someone feel like an adult if they did experience this lack of emotional connection from parents? What are the outcomes & behaviors typically seen?How does a person who has experienced childhood emotional neglect parent their own kids from an empty tank? Do you have to confront your own parents to heal from CEN? What's the first step to healing yourself from CEN?  Resources:Dr. Jonice Webb's WebsiteDr. Jonice Webb's Facebook PageDr. Jonice Webb's YouTube ChannelDr. Jonice Webb on InstagramDr. Jonice Webb on Twitter
Ameé has back on the show one of the One Broken Mom listeners' favorites, Lindsay Gibson. Lindsay is the author of Adult Children of Emotionally Immature Parents: How to Heal from Distant, Rejecting, or Self-Involved Parents and has just published the follow-up book, Recovering from Emotionally Immature Parents: Practical Tools to Establish Boundaries & Reclaim Your Emotional AutonomyLindsay and Ameé have spoken a couple of times about Emotionally Immature Parents – who they are and what its like growing up with them as your own parents. She has really become the expert on identifying and naming the condition of “Emotionally Immature Parents” (EIP) and putting some arms around how their parenting styles create unstable and sometimes chaotic experiences for us during our childhood and into adulthood. In this episode, you will hear not only practical advice and tools for redefining your relationship with your parents but also for any of the emotionally immature people you run into or have to deal with in life. In this episode you will also hear:What are the characteristics of emotionally immature peopleDo your emotionally immature parents have to be cut off or can you have a relationship with themHow did growing up with EIP impact our communication stylesWhat is differentiation How EIP's are hostileHow EIP's may have made us learn to NOT be assertiveHow growing up with EIP's may lead you to have romantic relationships with emotionally immature peopleLearning how to set boundariesResourcesLindsay's WebsiteBook Links:Adult Children of Emotionally Immature Parents: How to Heal from Distant, Rejecting, or Self-Involved ParentsRecovering from Emotionally Immature Parents: Practical Tools to Establish Boundaries & Reclaim Your Emotional Autonomy
For parents with teens, tweens or kids that will be at some point, this episode is a great one to listen to. Ameé speaks with a favorite repeat guest, Jax Anderson - a Wisconsin-based family therapist that specializes in teenagers. Together, they have a frank (meaning adult words) and super helpful conversation about how to parent teenagers when they are acting their worst.As Ameé mentions in the episode, it's always really easy to parent when things are good and pat yourself on the back for your awesome skills but messy feelings are a part of life and our kids have more of them than our co-workers or friends do (and if that's not a true statement - rethink your job and your friends! Seriously.)So, showing up and parenting when our kids' act, quite frankly, like a-holes is super tough - especially if you have wounds yourself and the confrontations trigger you. Jax provides some real tips and insights on how to do this. AND, guess what? If you actually practice and use them, I bet that the incidences of difficult, disrespectful behavior, will actually decrease.ResourcesJax Anderson - The Psyko Therapist on FacebookThe Psyko Therapist Website 
For the first time, Amee gets even more personal and shares a few of the details of her life with her own mother, including the "night that broke" her. She also details how she planned on using the time between seasons to talk with her mother about her work and her recovery but a life-changing event between seasons changed everything. 
WARNING STATEMENT:If you are or have been experience suicidal thoughts or have attempted to end your life by suicide, this episode is NOT for you. The topic we discuss today can be extremely triggering for someone who is struggling with suicide ideation and could be completely and understandably misinterpreted. If you are a Listener, again, who has attempted suicide in the past or experience thoughts about killing yourself, please, skip this episode. Go listen to Part 1 with Andy instead or simply move along to something else. In the latest statistics from the National Institute of Mental Health, in 2017, 10.6 million adults aged 18 or older reported having serious thoughts about trying to kill themselves, and 1.4 million adults made a non-fatal suicide attempt during the past year. For every one of those adults, it is safe to say that there is at least one other person trying to support them. But you can easily imagine that the number is actually higher, right? We are talking about moms, dads, brothers, sisters, friends, co-workers, husbands and wives. There is no question that understanding why a person wants to end their own life is vital to preventing deaths from suicide. However, suicide is a taboo topic in our society and let’s consider for a moment that one of the reasons is not just that there is a concern that talking about suicide gives suicidal people the wrong idea about benefit to die at their own hands. What if one of the reasons we don’t talk about it is also because it would open up a Pandora’s Box of shame, judgement that lives in the hearts and minds of the people who are in the trenches with someone who constantly thinks about killing themselves. It is not easy to live with someone who has a severe mental health condition and yet we are not allowed to say that. We are not allowed to feel exhausted. Angry. Sad. Frustrated. Depressed. People outside of this turbulent world are quick to point out how shameful and selfish those feelings are. So, the soldiers on the front line in this war to save another persons life keep these feelings to themselves. They keep their own battle hidden and can become anemic.  It is proven however, that maintaining connections with people who have thoughts of suicide can greatly reduce the deaths from suicide. So, it is just as important that we also talk about supporting those who are out there riding out the storm with someone they don’t want to die so that are fully resourced and able to maintain the life-saving connections with the people they love.  If you are one of us – someone dealing with supporting a person with a severe mental health condition on a regular basis – then this episode is for you. But I’m also warning you - Be ready to hear a frank, honest, raw and brave conversation from a wife who’s husband has suicidal thoughts and how she deals with this battle on her terms. If this episode triggers you – that is okay. Take your time or stop listening. But you know me – there is no room in my world for false judgments or shaming other people. This is about supporting one another. We are all here to get better together. Resources:Lori Grant's Website Be The One To Help Save A Life WebsiteSuicide Prevention Lifeline or Call 1-800-273-8255
On this episode, Ameé speaks with Jen Proctor, the founder and CEO of Cultivated Entertainment, a highly successful talent booking agency out of LA and New York, about losing her mother to suicide when Jen was only 13 years old.  Now, where the loss of a parent can be the kind of trauma that devastates you for life, for Jen it was that tragedy that instilled an inner compass for which she would make balance, wellness and well-being a top priority in her life. And Jen is here with Ameé to talk about her experience and to share with listeners how she turned tragedy into triumph. In this episode you will hear: The story of her mom and her mental health strugglesWhat did her support network look like after her mom’s death?How did the experience change her – positively and negativelyWas there anything that could have been better or different in terms of support at that time that could have improved any outcomes for her?What her key messages are for others who have suffered the same tragedyResourcesJen's Company, Cultivated Entertainment Website

In a recent article in the New York Post, they dubbed her "The Divorce Whisperer." Dr. Cohen has been featured in the Wall Street Journal,  NBC News, Women’s Health, New York Post, Huff Post, Thrive Global and, Good Housekeeping. In this episode you will hear:  How does someone know when “Divorce” is the right answer versus couples counseling? If you tell your partner you want a divorce but they promise to change, should you give them another chance? What to do when our partner tells us they want a divorceHow to handle the dividing up of friends and favorite placesThe good and bad about advice from other people What is the most important thing a man or woman can do to keep themselves from cracking under the pressuresPost Divorce: How do you make sure you DON’T end up in another bad relationship Resources:  Elizabeth's Program: https://drelizabethcohen.com/afterglow/

She is a writer, speaker, educator and like me, an avid reader and learner. Since the explosion of social media, Pam has gained additional "internet fame" with her quote "Let's raise children who won't have to recover from their childhoods."

Even before being verbal, a child can sense what he or she needs to do in order to receive the attention they need from their mother. And in the case of a narcissistic family dynamic, it is not unusual that the youngest benefits from watching the negative consequences of their older siblings actions and so they adopt the role of being the "court jester" in order to diffuse the tension in the room.  Listen as guest Michelle Piper and Ameé talk about how the Mascot child evolves and what challenges lie ahead of them as an adult and parent. <p>Resources: <p>www.narcissisticmother.com <p>www.michellepiper.com
