59. Dr. Todd Bowman – How Our Historical Stories Drive Our Hysterical States

Welcome to Episode #59 of the Red Ink Revival Leadership Podcast. Today’s conversation is with Dr. Todd Bowman, a psychologist, neuroscientist, and amazing human being as we talk through how our historical stories drive our hysterical states. Our conversation takes us into the following topics:

  • Why knowing your own story from an emotional perspective is so important.

  • How our stories are about emotional needs being met or unmet.

  • How our stories impact our personality formation.

  • What our bodies do to carry our story and influence our future.

  • How our brains reorganize around painful memories to manage survival.

  • Why revisiting and sharing our stories reorganizes the brain for reprocessing pain.

  • What triggering behaviors look like and where they come from.

  • What to do when you emotionally recoil from reliving and recalling past painful memories.

Dr. Bowman is the Associate Professor of Counseling at Indiana Wesleyan University. He is an Adjunct Professor for Human Sexuality at Nazarene Theological Seminary. He is an Adjunct Professor of the Intro to Psychology at Nazarene Bible College. He is also an assessing psychologist for evaluating seminary applicants for ministry training.
