Basically...with Stefanie Preissner 86: What’s the Story with the Fawn Response, Katie?
This week, Stefanie speaks with accredited psychotherapist Katie McKenna. Katie explains how “the fawn response” manifests in children and adults in both helpful and detrimental ways. Stefanie and Katie discuss how to know if you’re a “fawner,” where the response might come from, and how therapy can help fawners achieve more balance in their lives and relationships.
You can get in touch with Katie through her website and read about trauma, the fawn response, parentification, and more on her blog. You can also find her on TikTok @katiemckennatherapist.
You can support Stefanie and the show on HeadStuff+
