Masculinity with Michael Shawe
Manage episode 314505155 series 2803875
Michael Shawe started out in research psychology studying the origins of childhood depression which is a risk factor for depressive episodes in adults. When he was deciding on what path to choose, his advisor at the time who strongly encouraged him to be a researcher, died suddenly. Michael took time to reflect and decided on going on a more clinical path. From there he was invested in understanding people, but also aware of the impact of culture on our psychological development. He thought that might be in journalism, but the field seemed bleak and he always enjoyed talking to people and getting to know them in the interview process. Michael decided to take his awareness of the micro world and dedicate himself to guiding people into a deeper awareness of themselves. However, that was a long ways away from what actually occurred. He spent 7 years working with people with serious and persistent mental illness and chemical addiction from varying ages in non profits. At some point, Michael realized his interventions, while unconventional, were highly effective with his clients, but often he ran into obstacles with his superiors who found his methods untraditional.

Request for support from my listeners:
I am going to be moving back to Bend, OR and I would love to set up a small studio in my apartment so Kyle and I don’t have to use zoom. In order to do that I would need to buy two Dynamic XLR Microphones so we can sit at the same table together, as well as a mic stand and the XLR cords to go with. This can get expensive especially when mics can cost between $200 – 500$ each. This will help me save time and not have to spend on average 8hrs of editing on each episode. Since I haven’t been working because of COVID, I would love your support in donating 1-10$ to my Living connected Paypal account. A little goes a long way and I truly from the bottom of my heart would appreciate it. I will also give you a huge shout out on my podcast to those who have donated. If you would prefer to be anonymous that is okay too. Let me know in the notes if you would prefer not to have a shout out of gratitude.
