ep 46 *Final Episode* Atatiana Jefferson: Why POCs don't call the police for wellness checks

In this episode, Davia discusses the heartbreaking death of 28 year old, Atatiana Jefferson of Fort Worth, Texas in what should've been a "simple" wellness check. The episode discusses the details of the shooting, the impact of this form of trauma, and its implications for mental health wellness checks. This is the final public episode of the AFFIRM podcast.

With April being Sexual Assault Awareness Month, we are discussing a symptom that many survivors experience: dissociation.

ep 40 Birth Control The Pill & Holistic Alternatives

Today, we're discussing birth control. The discussion of female reproductive health is highly politicized and while we’re still fighting to have autonomy over access to healthcare for a myriad of reproductive needs… there’s another wellness issue at hand: ...miseducation or a total lack of education about the best options for our bodies. I’m specifically referring to birth control, how it works, and the tons of options that we can use naturally or through medication. Because while women’s bodies are constantly the topic of conversation, many women are sharing how they received very little education about the inner workings of their bodies outside of the “Don’t get pregnant” message pushed by parents, schools, and abstinence programs. This lack of education leads many women to not know how to advocate for their needs or have awareness of different options. And when you don’t know your body and you don’t know your options, you can’t make informed decisions about the right d...

ep 39 Learning My Body

From a young age, the female sex is inundated with messages about our bodies. Commentary about body shape and desirability begins early. This scrutiny is particularly emphasized when a young girl's body begins to develop in puberty. This is intensified under the Madonna-Whore complex where women's values are determined by their desirability. This episode focuses on the need to shift from unhealthy societal messages and examine ways to begin a healthier relationship with our body. Take a listen...

ep 38 Who Gets To Be A Woman Of Color In Wellness Spaces

In today's episode, we are joined by special guest, Seher, and we discuss who gets to be a woman of color in wellness spaces. Now the term WOC has risen in popularity in recent years, essentially replacing the term “minority or minority women.” Now, this term is not new, especially when it comes to activist spaces. However, the use of this term has extended beyond activist spaces and has become part of our everyday vernacular. We can see its use in magazine articles, marketing campaigns, and social media. But with that, there seems to be confusion about who this term is actually addressing. Is this term for Black women, Latinas, Asian women, Indigenous women? Who is the term for and who does it benefit? In fact, when I asked the questions “How do you use the term WOC and how do you believe others use it?” I was presented with varying responses. Take a listen and hear what women had to say... Get full transcript of episode at redefineenough.com/podcast Continue the conversation b...

ep 37 Healers For Hire

So in the age of wellness and personal development, a lot of us are seeking information to grow and heal from emotional and physical pain, right? You're looking for someone to show you the way to transform and change your life. And as the demand for that grows, the number of self proclaimed healers seems to skyrocket. So the well intentioned and the flat out scammers all look alike on your Instagram and Twitter feeds. And with so many #healers, it's hard to know who's really in it for the right reasons. So today I want to discuss how the idea of being someone's healer can be problematic, but also cover the range of everything from an unaddressed savior complex to deliberately exploiting people's vulnerability to also recognizing the need for us to take responsibility in our own healing process. And I hope you're ready for that part of it too. So this isn't a "call out" episode but more of a "call in" for all of us. Get full transcript of episode at redefineenough.com/podcast Continu...
