Rank #3: 179: Masturbation, Values, and Kids with Natasha Heifer-Parker, MFT, CST

Podcast cover
Read more

Natasha was recently a guest on Braxton Dutson’s “Birds and Bees Podcast.” Braxton is a LCSW and Certified Sex Therapist in Salt Lake City, Utah. He works at The Healing Group and can be found here:

https://www.thehealinggroup.com/therapists/2018/4/20/braxton-dutson-lcsw-cst

About the episode: 

Masturbation, There are a lot of euphemisms for the word that makes many people uncomfortable to talk about. Let's face it, many parents are worried about what it means if their child masturbates. 

If you are a parent who wants to be able to support your child in building values around masturbation while also avoiding shaming them then this episode is for you. Braxton and Natasha Heifer-Parker, MFT, CST are here to help dispel myths, talk about values, talk about masturbation, and to support parents in creating a value-centric view on masturbation. This is especially supportive for those who live in religious communities and practice themselves. 

Many of us have grown up in a religious setting that explicitly or overtly teaches values about masturbation. It is difficult to be able to follow these values while also addressing the reality that the majority of children are participating in self-soothing/masturbation practices. 

In this Episode we explore: 

The question "when does masturbation usually start?"

Speaking to values when addressing masturbation 

Different approaches to conversations about masturbation with your child. 

Avoiding shame when having these (multiple) conversations. 

Creating "I Do's" in what you value, VS following a "to Do" list.

Historical views of Masturbation and how they affect us now. 

Identifying what we want for our children as a sexual being later in life. 

Offering a value-centric view on Masturbation in religious communities while addressing the ways we can best support our children. 

Natasha Helfer-Parker, MFT, CST speaks with Braxton about being able to explore these topics, address uncomfortable situations, and improve your understanding about "The M word."

Rank #5: 173: “The Next Mormon: How Millennials are changing the LDS Church” from a Mental Health Perspective

Podcast cover
Read more

Dr. Jana Reiss and Dr. Benjamin Knoll recently released a book about a survey they performed and the results, specially about Millennials. The book started 2011 when Dr. Reiss was interested in childhood and adolescents within Mormonism. But it then changed when Jana became interested in how those children are as adults, how the religion informed them and how those teachings in childhood might affect adult retention and religiosity. She then created a survey which was to see if there was intergenerational change and difference within the Mormon community itself. The book is a result of the survey.

Natasha approaches the conversation from a mental health standpoint and, specifically, a faith transition standpoint (faith transition does not necessarily mean leaving the church).    Dr. Jana Reiss has a Doctorate in American Religion and is a Columnist for Religion News Service.   Dr. Benjamin Knoll is a Political Science Professor at Center College in Kentucky. He specializes in politics and religion and specifically how we can understand religious and political behavior using public opinion surveys.

Rank #11: 144: Depression, Mormonism, and Faith Transitions Part 1

In light of a statement on LDS.org declaring, “An inability to feel the spirit … is often a symptom of poor mental health,” Natasha Helfer Parker, MFT CSTand John Dehlin, Ph.D. are joined by our guest Matt to speak about his experiences with Mormon faith crisis, depression, and suicidality—issues he has dealt with for 20 years.

According to Matt, it makes him angry to read that his struggles were a trial, test, or blessing from God, or that he could have been healed if he had more faith, prayed, or hadn’t “sinned.” Matt believes that religious observance is not a cure for mental health illness, and in these episodes, Natasha and John discuss how Mormonism, and in particular a faith transition in the context of Mormonism, can exacerbate the symptoms of depression.

Part 1: Natasha and John discuss depression and then introduce our guest, Matt

Part 2: Matt shares his faith transition and how it affected his mental health

Part 3: Natasha, John, and Matt discuss the LDS Church’s statement regarding mental health and the ability to feel the “Spirit”
