"rebecca williams" Discussed on The Addicted Mind Podcast

"Yeah. You know when we've been in the grips of addiction. Most of the time. We've got a lot of things that are against our own values against our own believes and we can be incredibly hard on ourselves and incredibly judgmental of ourselves. And mindfulness as you practice it gives you the ability to go. Wait a minute. Let me be a little kinder to myself year yet. Even speaking to you right now I feel like this is a kindness moment. I've even you're hearing your voice personally. I just had a breath. Wow Okay it's really happening right now and that can happen for folks recovery all the time you can have just moments just like a minute. A glimpse a half a minute of someone being kind to you or you being kind to yourself and just those that up those moments add up and then you become a gentler person. I think I think that's absolutely so true Yeah it's everything right and I think going back to the other part back to the beginning that this doesn't happen necessarily on the first time you practice. Mindfulness it's something that you cultivate over time. Exactly I mean just like taking yoga or any other skill. It took me four years of taking yoga to come up with this epiphany when I become more flexible. I become more flexible. I know that doesn't sound like much after four years of taking yoga but for me it was like. Oh my God. When my body's more flexible my mind is more flexible but that took a long time so same with recovery. It's GonNa take time for small improvements. Small adjustments to start feeling well again and give yourself out the benefit of the doubt. Yeah I remember reading a study somewhere and I don't know where he read this but basically they took people who had struggled with addiction and they put them through a mindfulness course. It just needed to do. I think it was like fourteen minutes a day of mindfulness practice for like six weeks and they had put them in a brain scanner prior to the study and then after the study and they could see the area of their brain that was associated with self compassion and kindness Actually was lit up more in just six weeks. Wow that's amazing and yeah so. Hey why not start right now? It's worth it. I mean that's research that's going to actually benefit all of us and if the other person's kind in the grocery store it's an a synergistic effect that could happen. So yeah yeah definitely so you. I've got copies of both of your books which I really enjoy. The first one is the gift of recovery. That's fifty two mindful ways to live joyfully beyond addiction and then your mindfulness workbook for addiction. So tell me a little bit about what motivated you to write those. Yeah I wrote this book with. Julie Craft my co author the earlier book. Mindfulness Book for Addiction Julie. Craft was my intern. Might Marriage family therapy intern at the hospital where we worked. I was supervising her. And we were talking about clients back and forth as we normally do to make sure everyone's going along great and I just felt a spark in her and I really wanted to work with her more and so we started talking about addiction and actually we started talking about loss and addiction. How that wasn't a lot of information on a clients who were experiencing loss lot of veterans that we worked with were experiencing loss and trauma and we started connecting the dots. And that's why this mindfulness for addiction came about. I've been working with Julie for ten eleven years now. We had our second book gift of recovery. And that's really like a companion book. That's day to day. Pick it up put in your hand open to any page that resonates with you and read of one page chapter and look at some affirmations to kind of stay on the road to recovery and be joyful on that road to recovery so we were banding about whether we should put the word joyfully in the title because most people in recovery. That's the last thing they think about. There really are still struggling with a lot of negative emotions so but we really thought that. There's a way to be well and joyful in your first year for covering. I think that's so important. I'm glad you put that in the title joyful because a lot of times when people are in the grips of addiction and they come in for treatment. And they're looking for help they can be in a really dark space and joy is the last thing that they even think might be possible right absolutely and. Yes thank you for saying that. It's a good thing to put in the book and I love the fact that folks are picking it up. Mindfulness workbook for addiction is being used in prisons. Which I'm really proud of and recovery centers and teen centers in. It's easy enough for folks to go through in a group setting and use the chapters on the exercise in the handouts to do whole group. You know so. That's kind of fun. Yeah to be able to get the support and that it's not it's accessible people can pick this up and do it and it doesn't take being mindfulness. It practicing mindfulness doesn't take anything but a willingness. Exactly Yeah and you know like we said earlier. It's okay to fall away from it. Come back to it. The mindfulness it's okay to have a bad day when you're doing meditation be agitated and irritable. Those are all normal. Okay things and that doesn't mean things aren't working sometimes things are Kinda detoxing emotionally as you get into mindful. A lot of people are cry or agitated and you know it does release a lot of affect emotions definitely a you be present with that and non judgmental about it and let that process through your body. Yeah you name your center mindful. Yeah novus mindful life. Yeah Yeah because mindfulness was a big part of my life. And that's how I wanted to live was more mindfully absolutely. Yeah definitely so if anybody's listening to this podcast and maybe they're thinking about this or maybe they're struggling with addiction or loss or grief or they're in a difficult space. What would you want to tell him? Be Kind to yourself. That's what I WANNA tell folks. Don't complicate things the out there. Like you said is very busy and complicated and inside can be very calm and peaceful so have compassion for your journey and remember to return to wellness along the way awesome.

Gift of Recovery: 52 Mindful Ways To Live Joyfully Beyond Addiction with Rebecca Williams

"All right. Let's talk about our guest today. Her name is Rebecca Williams and she is going to talk about mindfulness. She's an award winning author psychologist and leader in the field of wellness and recovery from Mental Health and addiction. She's been doing this for over twenty years and focused on helping people build resilience and embracing wellbeing now. I love mindfulness. It's a center part of my life and been crucial to my healing so I was so happy to have rebecca come on and talk about it and share her wisdom so I think it's great episode. I hope you guys enjoy it and let's go ahead and start it all right. Hello everyone welcome to the addicted. Mind and my guest today is Rebecca Williams Rebecca. You WanNA introduce yourself yes. Thank you so much for having me Dwayne. My name is Rebecca Williams. I may licensed psychologist. I lived and worked in San Diego. California Beautiful San Diego for twenty five years and just recently came out to Savannah Georgia to be around wildlife and beauty and nature. It's gorgeous out here. My path to about going into addiction really was about my family struggles with addiction especially my mother who's now gone but she struggled with addiction. And so I come from this from a family history angle and wanted to learn more and more about. It studied it in college. Master's degree also in counseling psychology. As well as a PhD at University of California Santa Barbara. So this is very personal to you. Yes it's personal and professional so it's a nice combination. Yeah I think that's somehow how it kind of works right because this is personal to me as well but also professional exactly. Yeah for sure all right. So let's talk about just go will just jump right in and talk about one of the things that you do. And one of. Your specialties is. Mindfulness this is a topic that I love. Mindfulness has been fundamental in my healing. So I'd love to hear everything you have to say about it and how you discovered it and how you found it how it's helped you and how you used to help others right great question. I agree mindfulness as paramount to my healing and my ability to be psychologists essentially came through mindfulness personally through yoga and that was before. Yoga was cool. I which is in the eighties now. It's real cool but back then it was just kind of a one off and not everyone knew about it or did it and I just learned about it and actually started teaching yoga in the eighties and then from there moved into mindfulness and meditation. I started like a lot of people. Didn't know what the Heck I was doing. I bought a a meditation cushion and I thought I had it all taken care of but I didn't. So you know just like a lot of people you go into meditation. Not knowing what's going on if you're doing it right and I came in with a sitting on my yoga meditation cushion with you. Know my coffee. My newspaper my cereal. I was all just anxious and not figuring it out quite yet until I slowly one by one got rid of the coffee and then the cereal and then the newspaper and I finally figured out after years. Just to bring myself to the meditation cushion and not get so cluttered with a bunch of other stuff. So I've been working on that for about twenty years or so so it was something you found to quiet. You're anxious mind. Which is something that I can totally relate to. Yeah I mean especially anxious mind and then going into the profession of mental health where you're dealing with a lot of other people with anxiety and depression and addiction and grief and loss and rage so you it takes a special person to stay in the profession and to really be well in the profession of mental health. And that's been my journey to stay well as I moved through this profession. So you know I was as you were talking and I was thinking about interviewing today. I was thinking about my own journey with mindfulness. And I remember. I was in Crisis in my life and had a ton of anxiety like overwhelming anxiety and I was beginning this profession and someone had given me. I think a book by John Cabot sin called full catastrophe living and I started reading that I started doing mindfulness because I just wanted to exactly. Yeah I mean we all habit and some more than others but there's a way through it and once you get it where you can have the ability to calm your mind down like like we're doing right now so anyone listening to this. Podcast can actually focus on the breathing and releasing tension. It's a practice just like recovery is a practice. Same thing with mindfulness right. So let's talk a little bit about what? Mindfulness is or how you bring it to your work or to someone who's struggling with addiction right and you mentioned John Cabot Zinn. I think his definition of it and he's in Massachusetts I think or maybe he's retired by now but his research and his ability to interact with his patients who had medical conditions really set the stage over the last thirty years but his ability to connect with people by just being in the room with them is pretty special. He thinks of mindfulness as being in the present moment on purpose. And this is the important part without judgment so being in the present moment. That's a challenge doing it on purpose. That takes a little bit extra work and then this special thing which I think we all struggle with is without judging rather than judging. Oh Am I doing it right? Or is this the right way to go actually just slowing down and releasing the judgment letting the thoughts flow through you and out versus getting stuck and having those thoughts hijack your wellbeing and that's challenging not to be judgmental having today is because we're judging everything all the time are categorizing? We're putting into different thoughts about it. Good bad and to be able to just sit there and watch takes some practice exactly. It takes practice just like anything else in life like even if you take a yoga class the first time it's icky and you really don't WanNa go back but once you get into the rhythm of it of not judging or releasing the judgment. I should say your brain starts to recalibrate itself. It's the oddest thing that happens. But actually new pathways open up. That are less sticky and more clear and smooth and calm. So it's you know you're right. It is a life journey to try to manage the judgement.

"Like I think this is the thing where those who practice the mindfulness or when I have a client to say, when I tried the deep breathing thing, I feel like I hear that often, but you know, what do you say to dad or how do you get someone out of that? I know I'm supposed to take a couple of deep breaths. I mean, how do you? How do you tap into, you know that kind of a new maybe help them with this opinion of, we're not just talking about, you know, you know. Right will for some of those people not everybody refer. Some of those people that gateway for me has been on going cognitive little bit silly or it sounds, you know, simple really talking about the nervous system that sympathetic nervous system, the Paris that nervous system, you know what's happening to the body when you're feeling stressed in fighter flight, and the fact that like you can actually take control and kickin that pair sympathetic nervous system and bring yourself back down again. And here's how you do it. It's somehow for some people that really helps it click a little bit more alone it. Yeah, so that actually controlling the breath can help you with low lower cortisol levels in release these other. I mean, you can literally take control of your fight or flight response yet. Backley. Okay. I love that chapter eight, anger. You have a zinn proverb. It is wonderful. Go or be drag, and I just I wanna force. One thing in and I wanna hear you guys talk about because I think anger is boy just as at the core of so much of. The cell feeling unlovable or feeling out of control or these things that people turn to addiction. There's a tedtalk. I did a podcast on acceptance and commitment. They are be where the speaker said. The easiest way to stop playing tug of war with the monster in our brains is the let go of the rope. And I, I don't know..

"Okay. I thought I think it was me even the right. So the collaboration is real. It's all in there. That's really, I love that. That's I love that one. All right. So are you okay, bye. I wanna know with some of the chapters to you. I've written down some notes on things that I love. Where do we go next. So there's a few the human brain you talk about the built in reward system or the reward pathway. So I mean, I love how can you just kind of explain that in layman's terms? What is what is that? Sure. Okay. Saw try to stick to layman's terms, but yeah, it's it's the dopamine that goes off in the brain, right? So it is a reward system of the brain is set up from an Ebola stamp way to reward us. When you do something that helps us, revival helps the species survive that includes exploring our environment. We get a little dopamine hit. That feels good, right? I'm sex, obviously, food dopamine Hetz, right? All of those. So the way this applies to addiction as that I'm certain substances in certain behaviors, really hijacked that national system and shoot the dopamine through the roof, right? So it's extremely rewarding. And it is training us training our brain to get more to get more to get more and a kinda goes from there. Unfortunately, it's not just. Constant rewards at that plant that, wow, reducing substances is kind of burning out the dopamine. So it's not as flexible as it used to be here. People talk about the first high. They have chasing the burst. Hi, I'm because the brain really can't experience that leisure the way that it did. So it is really when you think about it, my talk to clients about this lake. It really messes with you, right? Like MRs telling you to have more and more, but it's not gonna feel as good, just trying keep trying tolerance goes up. So the picture of that, yeah sense. When we get back to the concept of mindfulness that we have to learn how to live with those feelings because it's natural or normal brain, just thinking it's doing what it's supposed to give you more. Yeah, to sit with intolerate urges. Absolutely. So on Chow in chapter four, it's mastering the breath, and I feel like that's one of those where, again, those who aren't they view mindfulness as this thing that they don't understand. But boy, the breath really is key. I don't know. It would want one of you want to address that or what are your thoughts on what we? What? Do you tell somebody that how important the breath is going to be other than the fact that it keeps us alive, right? Yeah, yes. Yeah, we'll and I know that I wrote a lot about that in the book actually because I, when I think about the fact that the breakfast keeping us alive and it's not something after like make myself do all day is just happening. I really like that China shipped in thinking that this is so powerful. It's something that on as Mike, a little dark. But I think about, you know, being underwater and he's a little army come up right in that gas, like how much breath, like behold onto that and how much we needed wanted. On how sustaining the breath is. And yet it's just happening outside of my wariness leg. It's just I'm just being supported in that way as how I think about it. Like, wow, I don't have to try hard or convince somebody to let me grieve like it's it's happening. Nash is that I think is kind of like a gift, but the fact that it's happening outside of awareness is something that would you try to focus on in the book and help people con combat a little bit because it is so powerful if we can just bring our awareness to the fat and really pay attention to rat and then even kind of use the breath, right? We can actually focus in weekend Lank in the breath. We can deep in the Brad. We can really use it to benefit us to the utmost on. And it's pretty simple as always acceptable ties. We do with one breath. We do it for five minutes or more. It's really a a great doorway to mindfulness thing. So. So do you feel like..

"Riling lists stock here. Where's the inlets guards a little bit now? Yes, that definitely all unfolds in the room. I think exactly end I really work with the clients on what do you want like, you know, I asked myself that sometimes with through I want. And so it's just a goal oriented approach posits a positive approach to what's going to be happening next for for for a client in for therapeutic relationship for trust for ninety percent of people relax according to the third fence. Like I think it's part of the work. I don't. I, you know, I tied she, it's. Don't get. Find it. I'm not like I'm not, you know, finding a relapse. I'm just assuming that for some of my client majority of the clients as chance that a relapse could happen. So we talk about it beforehand. I can liken see a client Bank pre laps. I said, you know, it's looks like you're in relapse even though they haven't had a drink or you end up on the behavior yet. I can feel it. I'm sure they can feel it to about it before it happens and yet exactly the one. I like I like how you're just grateful that you put out. This statistic is I do even I'm noticing in my own brain that struggle of winnow client is saying. If I don't wanna ever relapse again, not wanting to kinda just say, hey, look, you're probably gonna, you know, but I know we go with that struggle of where we don't wanna be handing them this license, right? But then also wanting them to know that I love what you said. That's just I'm still here. That's part of the process. I'm gonna. We're gonna work with it sometimes all say they'll say, I'm sure you're disappointed. And I say, no, I'm glad that we can work on this together. Right? Yeah. Yeah. I like lake, Rebecca. When you're saying I haven't really thought of that the the like they are relaxing yet. They're not because you're right. I, we noticed and I feel like when we were talking earlier about it's hard to get people to do the work when the waters are calm that. Right. So when you start to see him say, I think I'm good. You know, I don't think I need the mindfulness practice every day, or, you know, I've been too busy to exercise or whatever it is that kind of what you're talking about. You start to see. I should have been a lot of ways. I'm sure you've heard this, but they say that relapse his process, not in a vent, right? Eleven laps. It's the process of relapse. I'm so I think yet shows up in a lot ways. It shows up in not going to meetings or not connecting with other super people or or not exercising, not meditating, whatever it is for them on. And then you noticed these little choices choices points, right? Where it used to be. We come to crossroads when we're really committed to recovery, it's the recovery choice like, okay, I'm gonna decide to call my sponsor, decide if that event because I feel a little weird and deadly. It's I talked to my ex-boyfriend we use, but I don't think he's using anywhere. You know, we just your gut goes, you know. Maybe that's a good way to jump into this really quick right out of the beginning. You start out talking about the noise in your head and I loved it. We normalized that a lot of people feel like that's unique to them or all the feelings that accompany recovery, and then I would want to know. I'm really curious when you Claburn on a book who who's quotes is just like a garden that needs to have sunshine food and water on a regular basis, you recovery will need to grow a will grow and thrive. When you begin to nourish it with a steady supply of mindfulness, whose quote..

"But right right now, please do not leave. You think this is just an episode that focused simply on addiction, and you know if that's something that you don't feel like you're interested in or if you feel like this isn't a topic that applies to you because the chances you probably know someone that has struggled with or suffering with addiction, or there's a good put doom and gloom. But I mean that or that you may run into that in the future with someone in your own family. But Rebecca Juliana do an incredible job at talking about what the heck mindfulness really is and how you can implement it in small ways that can immediately help you in your life right now. And it doesn't matter if you are. You don't have to be an colic or addicted to pornography or any of that. I mean, if you're like most people, I'm guessing they're areas of your life that you would like to improve. I mean right now, even small areas and the tools that teach in this book on this podcast, hopefully today can can really help you kinda know what everybody's talking about. They're saying, oh, I just need to be more present and change the relationship with my thoughts and that sort of thing. Again, one of the podcast they did earlier few weeks ago, it's not about just saying our, I know I just have to be happy after grit through it. It's not about that. It's more about just being present and not not chasing a lot of that negative self-talk fallen into the trap of believing all the negative self talk that our brains so often try and get us to believe because again, they want us to our brains wants to stay right here. They know what this feels like right here there little bit afraid of change. So please give this episode of listen and check out their book now quickly bit of background on these two incredible people, Rebecca Williams PHD Dr. Rebecca Williams is a psychologist. She's a teacher. She's an author. She's a mentor and she specializes in recovery from mental illness and addictions.

Go to a camp there one time, and they literally look at the beach, which is crazy at that university. She's currently the clinical director at the veteran affairs, San Diego healthcare system, and addition, she's in associate clinical professor in the department of psychiatry at the university of California, San Diego and an adjunct faculty member at the university of San Diego.

"Thanks for the great feedback from episode Eighty-three, which if you haven't listened was a q. and a. episode. So if you aren't big fan of Cuna episodes, let me just tell you that I briefly touched on how to start difficult conversations with a spouse or a loved one, but the same concepts apply to anyone friend neighbor of awesome pet. You name it and also answered the question of if someone can truly overcome pornography, diction, which I do get asked that often. And if you or your spouse has a pattern of turning to pornography or any type of. Also of sexual behavior from time to time and then going, never do it again only to succumb to impulse. I think a lot of people kind of settle in and just figure that's their lot in life, but it doesn't have to be. So I would encourage you to go back and listen to that portion. And I went all in and I shared a bit of my own journey into a diagnosis of ADHD or actually specifically ADHD sub attentive type, which is also known as eighty at the ripe young age of about forty six. And that my friends apparently is what a lot of folks wanted to hear more about. Not just my particular journey, but ADHD in general. And I shared that I'm planning on doing a lot more with ADHD in the coming weeks and let me let me let you in a little bit of secret. So on my Instagram account last week, and my Instagram name is simply virtual couch. All one word I shared that I had just completed an interview with an amazing woman. Fellow therapist's name Christine Hammond, and she is host of the extremely popular podcast. Understanding today's narcissist will I finished an interview with her and that. Interview won't go out for about another week or so, but there was just so much good info in that podcast. When I finished or when I finished that interview, I just I just felt like I wanted to get that out there soon as I could. So I decided I encourage folks to find the virtual couch account on YouTube, and I went ahead and I posted the video of my interview with Christine last week on the virtual couch YouTube channel, and it's it is packed full of information on narcissism, personality disorders in general. So she's she knows her stuff and she's really fun, and it was just a really, I really enjoyed that interview. So please go check it out. And if you'd be so kind while you're there, Gordon subscribed to my YouTube channel that is truly something I have not put a lot of effort into, but I've been putting a lot of uploads of the videos that are the video. So a lot of have been putting the interviews that I do video of up there. So I do up load a lot of the the video interviews. They're up there. In a matter of fact, the interview that I'm doing today or the podcast I'm doing today with Rebecca Williams and Julie crap that is up there. And there's a couple of things I even point out. Out in the audio version of the podcast where I think even said, man, if you can see what they did, and that's a good stuff. You wanna go watch that as well. Hey, that was my eighty happening right there. The reason why sorta tell you that story was that you also find an interview up there right now with a person who is a licensed educational psychologist is names reward, and that's another interview I happened to last week slated to be a podcast episode in about another two or three weeks. But again, such great content that I wanted to sneak it up there for anybody who wanted to hear more about what to look for. If you believe that your child may have a learning disability like dyslexia, or if you think your child may have ADHD or do I know of my child fit somewhere on the autism spectrum reading, I cover all of that again on the virtual couch YouTube channel, so so go find it. I'll put a link to it in the show notes, but please go up there and subscribe and I'd love it. If you'll.

"And so I had a client last week that was talking about that they were gonna go to college, and so I thought was, you know, I don't know. I don't know if I can do it that that you know what, if my, what my anxiety gets too bad, what if my depression kicks in? What if nobody likes me? What if you know? And it's and it's like, okay, what's our goal? Our goal is to to get to college. So then all of those are just their stories going through. The brain might be true, maybe false things. ID might get a little bit worse. Depression might who knows, right, but what's the story? My brain's telling my stories, the the brains tell me the story of, oh, it's the won't get help their story or or it's the maybe my medication won't keep working story or I'll never find another therapist when on their story or and so those are not workable thoughts. You know, those aren't workable thoughts toward the goal of going away to college because then we can work with all those thoughts if we don't fuse that to them. And if we don't look at those as truths and then they cause us the stuck because I think I've just said this thousand times now, but the brain just gonna keep on going with these reasons is gonna try because remember, this is the stuff that I love to do. Some work with this really cool place that does a lot of brain scans and the prevailing thought there is our brain is a little bit of a wants to take it easy. So you know the brain knows what right here right now looks like. So that's why when you say I wanna run a marathon, it gives a little shot of adrenaline. But then when it kind of settles back down says, I don't know, you know that what that's going to look like for this guy, so, so I wanna kinda stay right here. So the brain's going to cope with all these reasons to kind of keep you right where you are because it knows what this is like, even if it's something that we don't really enjoy or we don't feel like we're in in in the best place we can be with our emotional health or wherever we are as spiritual, where we live our jobs, the brain knows what this looks like. And it is a little bit afraid of the great unknown. So the acceptance and commitment therapy piece to that will get us moving down that path toward this great unknown. All right.
