Disney’s Encanto tells the story of a family who uses their magical gifts to serve their community. What we see below the surface is that the family members are struggling with unprocessed trauma, feelings of inadequacy, anxiety, unrealistic expectations, and rigid roles that have no room for self-care. Our institutions have faced a variety of crises, and we are called upon time and again to use our special gifts. We save the day over and over, but with hidden costs.
