CBT Videos
Featuring Our Favorite YouTube Therapist: Kati Morton, LMFT

 

 

“When brands and organizations normalize and prioritize

mental health, the door to unprecedented growth

and connection opens.” - Kati Morton

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is an evidence-based treatment that can help people with depression, anxiety, panic attacks, relationship difficulties, substance use disorders, and many other problems.
 

CBT places an emphasis on helping individuals learn to be their own therapists. Through exercises in the session as well as “homework” exercises outside of sessions, clients are helped to develop coping skills, whereby they can learn to change their own thinking, problematic emotions, and behavior.

Fight, Flight, Freeze, Fawn: Understanding Your Stress Responses

The first 1,000 people to use this link will get a 1 month free trial of Skillshare: https://skl.sh/katimorton11201 Today we are going to talk about our stress response, otherwise known as fight, flight, freeze, and fawn. Now I know you are probably wondering what freeze and fawn are, and why we don't hear about them as often, well that's what we will dig into today, so stay tuned. Let's start out by explaining what our stress response is. Whenever our nervous system believes that we are threatened either physically or emotionally (and it doesn't matter if we are truly at risk or not, we just have to think we are), like if we think someone could attack us, or if the situation at hand requires more resources then we have, we can be pushed into fight, flight, freeze, or fawn. Being pushed into this state causes our amygdala and entire limbic system to sound the alarm. This change in our brain focuses our body on survival and takes the planning and more organized part of our brain, our prefrontal cortex, offline. This can cause us to feel on edge, act impulsively, and even feel overwhelmed emotionally. It's supposed to be short lived, save us from a perceived threat, and then go away, but for many of us it can last for much much longer.

Can Depression Make You Binge Eat?

Can Depression Make You Binge Eat?

Depression isn’t just feeling down, or not as motivated as you used to, although those experiences can be part of it, it’s not the full picture. Major depressive disorder is characterized by 5 or more of the following symptoms, but you must have either a loss of interest or pleasure or a depressed mood. The other symptoms are changes in weight (appetite disturbance), sleep disturbance (sleeping a lot or not at all), psychomotor agitation or retardation (which really just means that we are either moving more or less than normal), fatigue or loss of energy nearly every day, feelings of worthlessness or excessive or inappropriate guilt nearly every day, difficulty concentrating or indecisiveness, and recurrent thoughts of death or recurrent suicidal ideation without a plan. And binge eating is characterized by eating (in a short amount of time like 2 hours) an amount of food that is definitely larger than what most people would eat in a similar period of time under similar circumstances. And there is a sense of lack of control over eating during the episode.
