On today's episode, I speak with Deran Young, President and CEO of Black Therapists Rock and the IFS Institute's Online Ambassador.
We met to record this at the beginning of May. We were still feeling the isolation and challenge of Covid-19 and George Floyd was still alive.
We had no idea what was to come.
I'm thrilled and honored to give you the first of four episodes devoted to Minority Mental Health Awareness.
Today is some of Deran's story- why she created BTR, her experience as a military psychotherapist, the challenge of dealing with divorce, health issues, and becoming a single mother, and her introduction to IFS. She talks about the origins of her younger 'self esteem' part and the freedom and power of unburdening and healing her.
And so much more.
She is funny and kind and fun and lovely. I'm glad we are going to get 3 more hours (at least!) with her this month.
Here is what Deran is reading:
You are a Badass at Making Money
A Framework for Understanding Poverty
