5 Ways to Care for Yourself During the Supreme Court Hearing and Afterwards

by Camilla Williams, Ph.D.

If you’ve turned on your television, looked at social media, or listened to the radio over the past week or so, you probably haven’t been able to escape the most recent round of conversations about sexual assault. You may have worn black on Monday in support of Dr. Blasey Ford, you have likely seen, if not participated in, the #Ibelieve or “WhyIdidn’ttell hashtags. You may be feeling energized, angry, sad, and/or overwhelmed as you are bombarded by the statements and questions that are being repeated around you.

Everyone needs to CHOOSE the way they will interact with the media around them.

For myself, I have decided to respond to the heartfelt conversation starters, ignore the quick memes (possibly liking them but not sharing them), and limit what I have to say because I don’t want to accidentally cause pain to people in my life.

Instead, I have offered (and offer below) cat pictures for people who need a brief distraction or reminder that there is good, soft, and fluffy in the world.

About Dr. Camilla Williams (PSY 27200)


Hi, I’m Camilla Williams, Ph.D. I’m a psychologist but you might also call me a listener, a carer, or a gardener of personal growth.


I help people who want to understand themselves better and make positive changes in their lives but aren’t sure how to take the first step and are held back by all the unknowns.


I support them as they identify their thoughts, feelings, and desires so that they can find their own voice and use it boldly.


I know the power of story from growing up in the Deaf community. I believe, based on both personal and professional experiences, that everyone deserves to tell their story and be believed. I believe that through telling our stories, we find our own wisdom and the strength to be our true selves.


I believe that knowing yourself and following your core beliefs will change the world. That’s why I hope you will schedule an appointment with me today.
