IT Chapter 1: Fear, Avoidance, Factitious Disorder, and Child Abuse
[Content Warning: this episode contains discussion about sexual abuse]In our first Halloween episode of 2019, we will be exploring fear as shown in the 2017 adaptation of It by Stephen King! We break down the fears experienced by each main child character in this movie and how these fears are overcome. We also address how fear is avoided by the adults in the town of Derry via stigmatizing and other maladaptive behaviors, such as Factitious Disorder (preciously known as M√ľnchausen syndrome). Happy Listening!
Fight Club: Dissociative Identity Disorder Vs Psychosis, Insomina, and Toxic Masculinity
The first rule of Fight Club is about to be broken because all we do this episode is talk about it. We will be diving head first into a discussion on the depiction of Dissociative Identify Disorder (DID), aka formerly Multiple Personality Disorder, in the film and evaluate whether the presenting symptoms better fit DID or Psychosis and the clinical accuracy of the portrayal in the film. We also discuss the true impact of chronic insomnia, existential crises, and dissociation. And lastly, we deliberate on the impact of toxic masculinity in current culture as well as how it is represented by Tyler Durden and the Narrator.
The Hunger Games: Fascism, Generational Trauma, and Maladaptive Coping Strategies
The only thing more powerful than fear is hope! In this episode we discuss the world of Panem and describe how the fascist regime of President Snow and the capitol have created 74 years of generational trauma on the citizens of the districts. We break down the maladaptive responses of Katniss, Peeta, and Haymitch as well as the adjustments to subjugation made by the other citizens of Panem that results in the child soldiers of Districts 1-3. Tune in to find out more and May the Odds Be Ever In Your Favor!
