In episode 104 of The Just Checking In Podcast, we checked in with psychotherapist Jason Hanson.
Jason is the author of the book ‘Domestic Abuse: Men Suffer Too’.
We talk about Jason’s journey from teaching to therapy and how he’s carved out his dream career through hard work, perseverance and having an important support network.
We do a deep dive into the book and find out about the stories behind male domestic abuse victim-survivors, the different forms of abuse they experience and why the statistics might be skewed and underreported because of the stigma men face.
We also discuss Jason’s experience of being bullied in school and the scars that left him with, fatherhood and how he mentally separates from the hugely traumatic experiences he hears from his clients on a daily basis to protect his own mental health.
As always, #itsokaytovent
