How to Navigate Societal Gaslighting and Stay Empowered is an updated replay of the season one episode “No, You’re Not Crazy.” Most information regarding gaslighting focuses on the psychological experience within individual relationships. However, gaslighting is actually a societal phenomenon with roots in social power dynamics. Those roots are why it is common to experience the psychological impact of gaslighting during periods of social change. However, because we tend to think of gaslighting as an individual experience, the effect of the societal gaslighting is exacerbated and our ability to navigate the stress is inhibited. We must step out of this over-individualization in order to develop support ourselves through the stress and engage this time with intention.
In this episode of Unlimited, the podcast, I engage how to navigate societal gaslighting and stay empowered in times of social change.
Some of what I’ll cover in this episode include:
- What a period of anomie looks like
- Gaslighting and how it’s showing up in our lives
- Shifting how you think about and engage stress
- Intentionally connecting to your values and setting boundaries
- Visioning through risk assessment
