I’m Lori Gottlieb, author of Maybe You Should Talk To Someone. And I’m Guy Winch, author of Emotional First Aid. We’re both advice columnists, TED speakers, and of course therapists in clinical practice who want to bring the lessons of the therapy room outside the therapy room… to all of you. Each week on DEAR THERAPISTS, we invite you to be a fly-on-the-wall in these personal, raw, transformative sessions with everyday people and then hear what happens when we give concrete, actionable advice and have them report back to let us know how things went after the session ended. We’re sharing these real sessions because we believe that everyone can benefit from hearing how people just like them get through their struggles and grow and change. So sit back and come into the therapy room with us… and prepare to learn a lot about yourself in the process.

    We Discuss Adam

    We Discuss Adam

    We hope you enjoyed Season 3 of Dear Therapists. As we get ready for Season 4, we have two special bonus episodes to share with you. Sometimes after a session, we like to think about what worked well, and also what we would do differently if we could do it again. In these two bonus episodes, we do a case consultation with our intern, Ben, a psychology graduate student who pre-interviews the guests and helps select who gets on the show. 

     

    This week/Next week we’ll unpack what worked with a session we loved, “Adam’s Cheating Boyfriend.” The next week, we’ll talk about a session that didn’t go as well–and share what we would have done differently.
