In Episode 8, we sit down with US-based media psychologist Dr. Christine Marie to discuss her research paper titled The Traumatic Impact of Media Humiliation, Misrepresentation and Victim-Shaming on Narrative Identity and Well-Being. We unpack the traumatic impact of media campaigns of humiliation and misrepresentation, including Dr. Marie's findings that these campaigns produce symptoms indicative of Complex PTSD. We explore the psychological distancing and victim blaming methods people use to justify their mistreatment of those targeted by these campaigns. Most importantly, we discuss healing, growth, and the work of reclaiming our lives after cancellation.
