Episode 291: Teen Suicide Contagion & Trauma Dissociation

Hello, everyone! Pretty heavy episode this time. Nothing graphic, as usual, but I decided to tackle some tricky questions. Before hopping into the questions, I share a quick tip about managing the news cycle during this really intense time. Here are the questions covered:

  • My kid’s school had two people die by suicide this year. How can I talk to them about it and should we switch schools?
  • I was abused as a child and have trouble remembering it without dissociating. What can I do?
