Today we talk with DeWone Bennett about a couple of different things including: sex, relationships, and impostor syndrome.
What is Impostor Syndrome?
DeWone Bennett is a licensed professional Counselor and has extensive training and certifications as a Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapist. We open up the show by talking with him about sex. Specifically we talk about what special occasions men expect they are going to be intimate with their significant other. Do women feel the same way? We also talk a little bit about relationships that decide to invite another person into the mix. This is very common in relationships, and DeWone talks about the kinds of questions he asks as a counselor to a couple who are thinking about doing this.
Then we talk about impostor syndrome. If you have never heard of this, here is the definition:
Impostor syndrome (also known as impostor phenomenon, impostorism, fraud syndrome or the impostor experience) is a psychological pattern in which one doubts one’s accomplishments and has a persistent internalized fear of being exposed as a “fraud”.
According to DeWone, this is more common in women than men. Where does this stem from? Listen in to hear what DeWone has to say about the details of this syndrome.
