Episode 87: Big Idea Series: Changing Your Mind

In this episode, we continue our exploration the intersection of some of the biggest and most powerful ideas in history and modern science using Johnathan Haidt’s The Happiness Hypothesis as our guide. This week we put the trauma-informed lens on the process of changing how our minds operate in the world. Both the historical wisdom and modern science hold important lessons to inform the recovery process.

Discussion Questions:

  1. Do you see a range of pessimism and optimism in those you serve or does one mindset dominate?
  2. How do you see Beck’s cognitive triad of depression (negative view of self, future, and world) impacting those you serve?
  3. Does Haidt’s suggested tripod of interventions of mindfulness, cognitive behavioral, and medication give you any new ideas for structuring services?
  4. Could priming improve your interventions and approaches?
