Thank you to everyone who caught the show live last night. A great big thank you to our callers, Denis, Autumn, Izzey, Sal, Evan, Dan (aka Factory) and Burton (sorry we ran out of time, please call back next week if you can). You were all wonderful.
Thanks also to the folks in the chat room. I wish I could figure out a way to do the show and participate in the chat!
We covered a lot of material last night including parentification of children, hostile dependency, the relationship between professional victims and professional caretakers and why you can’t “save” someone who is determined to be a self-proclaimed and self-imposed “victim.” We talked about being able to admit your own needs and asking for support.
We also touched a little bit on rescuers who rescue rescuers, but ran out of time, again, before I could get into it. Perhaps this should be a topic on its own in an upcoming show.
For those of you who couldn’t listen to the program live, here’s the embed:
The show will be back next Monday night, October 31, 2011 (Halloweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeen, spooky) at 9pm EST. Thanks again to everyone for all your support!
