The Crisses

When we were 16 we discovered that we weren't alone in our head. And we decided to live as an intentional family. Since, we've been diagnosed, asked whether we wanted to integrate, embarked on a journey of wrestling with PTSD and triggers, unloaded a boatload of baggage, and decided that we enjoy our shared life. Along the way we've become a holistic practitioner and a life coach.

This podcast covers many issues about being multiple, about living together in harmony, and more. Our goal is helping other systems with internal community.

    020 - Integration Is Not What Anyone Thinks


    Integration Is Not What Anyone Thinks (020)

    If you have to ask what they mean, maybe they should use a different word?

    Going over the whole lot of confusing words used between psychology and psychoanalysis and while they may think they have their terminology straight, it's quite likely that 2 professionals would use the I-word and not know what each other means exactly by it. If no one knows what anyone else means, then maybe we shouldn't use the damn word in the first place? Self-advocacy episode — just say "No" to using the word "integration."

    Brief negligible spoiler with mistake about Heroes the TV series. Note to selves: fact check everything. We got a name wrong. It's not Tracy -- it's Gina.

    Trigger warning: Some people find the entire concept of anything using the I-word to be triggering, so obviously this episode wouldn't be for you if that's the case. As always, these episodes may not be appropriate while driving. Please mind your triggers, and put our podcasts on broadcast in your internal landscape so anyone who wants to can listen in.
