Are you in a situation where you’re doing relationship things but without the official commitment? For some people that works but for others it’s far from relationship goals. But what’s probably worse than that is being ghosted. Licensed Marriage Family Therapist, Margena Carter joins us to help us manage our physical and mental health while setting the record straight on how to handle situationships and the do’s and don’t’s about ghosting and being ghosted.
Well, we can’t stop talking about Lifetime’s doc, “Surviving R. Kelly.” It certainly has left us with a lot of questions that only an expert can answer, and I have the perfect mental health expert for you who is schooled in all areas of psychiatric disorders and paraphilias — that is, conditions of abnormal sexual desires. — as well as fetishes. She is psychotherapist Margena Carter, a media-savvy clinician, specializing in matters of the mind (mental health) AND the heart (marriage and relationships). Margena hasn’t seen the documentary on R. Kelly, and she doesn’t have to. As a psychotherapist, she deals with real-life clients and patients who have various psychiatric disorders. and sexual perversion issues. She says people like R. Kelly, a pedophile — a person seemingly sexually attracted to underage girls — is more common than you think. I would love for Margena to be a part of the R. Kelly conversation. She can help us understand some of the burning questions that America is asking like: Is R. Kelly really a pedophile? There have been reports of R. Kelly being sexually abused as a kid. Does this have something to do with his pedophilia? How is his behavior different from Hugh Hefner? Can he be treated and cured of this sickness of pedophilia? Why do the women in R. Kelly’s alleged “sex cult" stay and not flee? What is Stockholm Syndrome, and how does it relate to the mental state of these women being sexually abused? Plus, she can help us understand the mind of a predator, including their habits, rituals, and need for power. Most importantly, Margena can help us comprehend the mental capacity of the abused women under R. Kelly’s “spell” and how they are possibly brainwashed and experiencing a "mentally captivity.” The documentary was disturbing but fascinating. I think you’ll find Margena’s commentary to be very compelling
