QAnon- what to do?

Carol Overland - Legalectric - Sun, 01/10/2021 - 11:10pm

When folks around you are mired in QAnon, conspiracies, lies, what to do? I’ve come around to thinking that what’s needed is intervention, and treatment and/or deprogramming, as with cults, or in 12 Step chemical dependency models.

After this last week, each of us should be asking this question and grappling with action.

From Psychology Today:

Part 1 – The Psychological Needs That QAnon FeedsWhat to do when someone you love becomes obsessed with QAnon


Part 2 – How Far Down the QAnon Rabbit Hole Did Your Loved One Fall? What to do when someone you love becomes obsessed with QAnon


Part 3 – 4 Keys to Help Someone Climb Out of the QAnon Rabbit Hole – What to do when someone you love becomes obsessed with QAnon

This is a little too “psych lite” for me, but in talking about intervention, there is this, which makes sense:

Another form of psychotherapy that could be applied to conspiracy theory beliefs is cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), which is designed to challenge “cognitive distortions” and false beliefs by looking at evidence to disconfirm them.

From the article, a reading list:

David Neiwert’s forthcoming book Red Pill, Blue Pill: How to Counteract the Conspiracy Theories That Are Killing Us also looks to be a worthwhile read.

Fill the Tank

Tom Swift - Untethered Dog - Sat, 01/09/2021 - 3:16pm

Coming back from illness and stress you want to return to baseline — but not so fast. You emptied your well. It must be refilled. Make few assessments; you haven’t been functioning at normal levels. Instead, rest. Stretch. Move. Drink water. Eat food. Read. Consume other art. Write without effort or expectation.

The post Fill the Tank appeared first on Untethered Dog.
