In this episode, Dr. Jessica Tyler sits down with Dr. Camden Morgante, a licensed clinical psychologist, writer, and speaker, to discuss purity culture. This conversation discusses the problematic messages of purity culture that promote false promises and can activate feelings of shame, guilt, fear, and low self-worth.

In addition, we address how therapists can mindfully and intentionally work through spiritual trauma, the belief that purity is a measure of worth, the myth of women as gatekeepers of sexuality, and the grief that comes with dismantling the fairytale that purity will earn a person a dream spouse.

In this episode, Dèsa speaks with Pearis Bellamy and Dr. Della Mosley about the formation of Academics for Black Survival and Wellness, aka Academics for Black Lives. They share the successes and challenges of their work as healer-scholar-activists and why the fight for Black liberation leads to the liberation of everyone. We discuss the power of communities, how counselors can be healers beyond the counseling room, and why nothing starts in academia.
