Episode 18: Distressed Genes.
Since P is a father of many, many, m-ma-mm-ma-many children, Dan wanted to know if he fears passing some of the traits of his mental illness on to his children. Since children often learn by watching, it’s not hard to believe that they can learn and adopt “abnormal” behavior and think it’s normal. For instance, if a parent has OCD and washes their hands 150x per day, their child may think that’s normal. Dan shares that he would prefer a Black therapist because of how they’re able to relate culturally. P doesn’t necessarily agree.
