Episode 35: Where are my Thank Yous! Trauma, Entitlement, & Gratitude

Podcasters: Matt Bennett, Curt Mower, & Dr. Jerry Yager

Our first listener request episode! We spend our days giving our all to those we care about. Often our compassion and caring are met with frustration and a sense of entitlement by those we serve. What is going on here? Why don’t people we serve appreciate our efforts and sometimes treat us like disposable people in their lives? In this episode, Matt, Curt, and Jerry explore this issue in depth and try to answer the great questions from our listener.

Discussion Questions

  • What are the factors that might prevent those we help from experiencing gratitude?
  • What are the factors that might make a person feeling gratitude uncomfortable with expressing appreciation?
  • How can we help people who don’t show us gratitude learn to express it with others?
