Mindful Recovery with Robert Cox

Mindful Recovery is a podcast devoted to helping individuals who are struggling with trauma and addictions recover. Mindfulness is a research based method for dealing with anxiety and trauma. Psychological and neuroscience studies have found that it is possible to increase the growth of neuronal pathways and retrain our brains in coping with these issues. Basic techniques like learning to pay attention to our own breathing and looking honestly and non-judgmentally at our hurt places can begin to create an emotional holding space that allows us to live without reacting to the pain and begin deciding how we want to act on the world we find ourselves in. This becomes the beginning of recovery and, thus, the beginning of a new and abundant life in recovery. Whether you struggle with anxiety, mental illness, complex trauma, PTSD, addictions or a multitude of other problems, becoming mindful in the way you live is the first step along that path. I would be honored if this podcast could help you begin that journey.

Today we speak with Adena Bank Lees, PhD who specializes in the treatment of trauma and sexual abuse.  She has written two books, the latest of which is a book on covert sexual abuse or the use of a child as an emotional surrogate for the missing spouse.  This form of trauma can be very impacting and is often at the root of addiction.

    Second interview I've heard from Dr. Adena Bank Lees. New to the subject but this is extremely insightful and well-balanced. I'm a social worker with a background in theatre and Buddhism so I'm so excited to learn more about her application of psychodrama and the intersectionalities we share.
