So for today I record this episode with Dr Alan Lipscomb Back in November twenty nineteen It's been a little bit. I mean I'm really. I'm really got a little bit backed up with with the episodes and that's a good thing right I had I got some good and some bad advice. I think at the same time the advice was to kind of you know. Put out a number of different feelers number of different invites to have people on your podcast. with the thought process is that you know fifty percent of them will say no a lot the people said yes and so. That's how I got all backed up and everything but You know the thing about interviews. Is that these. Things remain timeless right so we can always go back and revisit these types of things so back the tragic death of Tatyana Jefferson down in Texas You know I really kind of thought about this and I remember the shooting of Miss Jefferson. We saw the the fact that she was actually killed in front of her nephew. I understand and that type of traumatic incident really does play a large part in The psychology in Psyche. This young man as he's going to grow up and so I thought about this and I decided to reach out to someone who with a lot more expertise than myself. And that's how I reached out to Dr Alan Lipscomb so we're a run through his a a bio then the second year but I really just kind of want to talk and just kind of paint the picture for you all as to why reached out to him. We seen so many tragic incidences all these different police shootings that have gone around the country. Some of them extremely viral. Some extremely violent. And we've seen not only the incidents but we've seen how the community entity reacts and we've seen her police department react and all that kind of stuff so I really wanted to talk about that and what we can see as what's going going on in this the psychology in the trauma that surrounds these different types of officer involved shootings in which Seemingly armed males are shut down killed. Now we can have a totally different discussion. I'm willing to have a totally different discussion at another point in time you know are these really unjustified shootings it's just because and let me be very clear just because the media says that the son was unarmed does not mean that they are not dangerous they cannot cause serious bodily injury and our harm or death to a police officer and or another civilian so You know in the media rights rights these narratives are two sides these narratives in order to paint a picture. But you have to be very cautious in what you take in in your heart and in your mind and what you allow into your own psyche right. Nevertheless there is a trauma Llama that accompanies these types of of events. And there's been a helplessness that many people in many communities have felt throughout the years. And this is what I want to talk about. If you listen to the episode with Dr Raphael I highly suggest you listen to that because he talks about the trauma that many Puerto Ricans are out on their island through colonialism into racism etc etc.. In how as a result of those traumatic instances is that many of those people have felt throughout their lives. They have turned to towards drugs to mask the pain or to ease the pain. And what have you so the same thing is happening with with African Americans As they seemingly are shot down by the police and so we see some type of trauma that goes on a retard the doctor lipscomb and I really appreciate appreciate him coming on. He really had a wealth of knowledge. And we're going to get into it and just a second here so let me just read from his bio so before we get into Alan and you gene lipscomb. He's got a doctorate in psychology. He's a licensed. Clinical Social Worker Assistant Professor in the.
