Forethought Thursday 2019-08-16

Welcome to my weekly newsletter, which will be looking at four ideas that may benefit our future. These concepts will be around the topic of emotional well-being. Please let me know your questions and or ideas! I would love to cover them in a future issue.

The First Psychedelic Assisted Psychotherapy TED Talk – While you may have heard me speak a lot about the efficacy of psychedelic assisted psychotherapy, this talk is by Rich Dublin. For 30 years, he’s been heading the science into getting psychedelic assisted psychotherapy accepted by the western scientific model. It’s a great talk, check it out if you or loved ones are affected by trauma, anxiety, or depression.

3 Group Therapy Check-In Exercises – This is part of my 12 week video series I’m releasing on group therapy skills. If you’re a therapist looking for additional group therapy tools or an individual wanting to build emotional fitness, check out these three videos: KeysEnvironmentToys

Trauma and Leadership – A recent paper stated “Collective traumas and the development of leader values is a currently omitted, but increasingly urgent, research area”. Trauma, both small and large, separates us from ourselves and others, and has a substantial impact on teams. It’s vital that we support everyone, including our leaders, in healing trauma. 

Quote I’m Pondering: “What if we stopped celebrating being busy as a measurement of importance? What if instead we celebrated how much time we had spent listening, pondering, meditating, and enjoying time with the most important people in our lives?”
