Formation of a Star (feat. Dr. Chris Donaghue)


WAITING TO BE SEEN: So much of who and what we are, and how we respond to our life as adults is formed in the very beginning stages of consciousness. In this episode, we look at the climate and circumstance in which young Norma Jeane was born into. An unstable mother, an early life full of abandonment and abuse - she survives and transforms - but those early cracks and fissures of trauma only seem to widen with time... Joining the conversation is Dr. Chris Donaghue (PhD, LCSW, CST, ACS). Dr. Chris helps unpack a how life experiences impact and ultimately shape, our reactions and responses. For more info on Dr. Chris and all his projects visit: drchrisdonaghue.com EDITOR'S NOTE: Norma Jean is married off by her "Aunt Grace" to a neighbor in an effort to keep her from another move to the Los Angeles Orphans Home Society. Jim Dougherty was twenty-one years old when he wed his bride in 1942 - she was only eighteen days into her sixteenth birthday. @fascinationpod

Learn how this pandemic affects libido and how to deal with desire discrepancy, get tips for setting boundaries with difficult housemates, find out how to use sensory experiences to find solitude, plus learn to identify hidden signs of depression/anxiety and which mental health strategies can help.
