Episode 88: Big Idea Series: Reciprocity

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 reciprocity. We explore how reciprocity might explain our own behavior and choices and the role reciprocity plays in the trauma recovery process.

Discussion Questions:

  1. Did reciprocity have any role in your choice to become a helper?
  2. How could you give those you work (when appropriate) with a chance to provide reciprocity for the support and resources they receive?
  3. Could you use any of what you learned to better inform your advocacy or to change certain aspects of your community?
